I'm used to change, indeed it has become a necessity for me, just as one expects fresh decor at the opera, simply because it has been so many changes of scenery before. I know what to expect from the best as well as from the worst hotel; however good or bad it may be, I nowhere find anything I'm used to, and in the end it's all the same whether you're dependent on a habit that has become a necessity or on the most arbitrary chance...
