AbstractIn his article, 'Heartbreak at Hilbert's Hotel', Landon Hedrick argues that the 'Hilbert's Hotel Argument' (HHA) proposed by William Lane Craig is ineffective against proponents of presentism, who include Craig himself. I show that there is no heartbreak if the Hotel and persons are constructed and generated in a certain way: there exists a 'hotel room builder' and a 'customer generator', they have been building hotel rooms and generating customers at regular time intervals as long as time exists, and the hotel rooms and customers have continued existing after they have been built and generated respectively. © 2013 Cambridge University Press.
