Forgive the off-topic post from the Grammar Police, but if you undo the contraction "there's" you get "there is", which becomes, "There _is_ only 48 rooms" which ought to be "There _are_ only 48 rooms" which means you ought to say, "There're only 48 rooms." I hear this all the time, even in radio advertisements, and it drives me crazy.
