Actually, it's a tunnel from the lower parking lot to an elevator in the inn.

It reminds me, because of the reflections, of the tunnel to the lower half of Niagara on the Canadian side. Very nice photo.

Such cool light and textures on the wall, to me it looks more like an escape route than a hallway to the parking lot

That is a marvelous color for a tunnel and makes a fine subject for this shot. I like having the people there. I'm not sure strangers coming down the tunnel late at night would be a pleasant prospect! :-)

I had to look and look at this before allowing myself to read your comments -- I was wondering if the walls and ceiling were gold gilt. Quite an eye to have pulled your camera out for this incredibly interesting image.

Interesting. This place has kind of a kinky futuristic/sci-fi quality to it.

A gold tunnel... strange perspective with this light and color... perhaps a new scene in a James Bond movie ?
