I had a pomeraian that I used to travel with A LOT. She was my carry-on bag for many air flights, and came with me in the car on many, many road trips.
Check with the hotel - many pet friendly hotels have one of two basic scenarios:
1) They are pet friendly, but will not allow you to leave your pet in the room unattended. If this is the case, they will typically have a list of recommended "spa" and/or day-care facilities that are located within walking distance (or that provide a shuttle service).
2) Your pets are allowed to be left in the room unattended. If this is the case, they will usually offer walks and play time during the day for a relatively small fee. In this scenario, I would walk my pom early in the morning, arrange for 1 walk (30 minutes) around 10:00, a second walk (30 minutes) around 3:00, then would be back in the hotel around 5:30 or so. If you opt for this scenario, I would make sure your dog has lots of familiar things around - either a blanket that she's used to sleeping on or near, or her bed (if at all possible), lots of interesting toys, and treats the walker can give to her (one at the start of the visit and one at the end).
She will be stressed because her routine has changed, but it will really be fine.
