It's completely normal for it (or any other Thunderbolt connector) to become warm during use, so there's nothing to worry about. :)

I would get the thunderbolt to ethernet adapter to connect the first MacBook Air to the hotel's inte I would get the thunderbolt to ethernet adapter to connect the first MacBook Air to the hotel's internet via ethernet. You could then get the USB to ethernet adapter and plug that into the first MacBook Air and go into settings and share your internet connection (from thunderbolt-ethernet) to USB-ethernet and with a 2nd USB-ethernet adapter for the 2nd MacBook Air connect the two MacBook airs with an ethernet cable. Practically speaking it'd be better to connect the first MacBook Air to the hotel's ethernet (via the thunderbolt to ethernet adapter) and then in Settings "Share" your internet connection via the Airport (built in to the first MacBook Air) - this creates a wireless (and password protected, if you'd like) wireless network that you can connect the 2nd MacBook Air and iPhones to. Another option is to connect an AirportExpress to the hotel's ethernet and create a wireless hotspot for all devices to connect to. Most hotels do not have super high-speed ethernet internet access so the benefits of hard wiring the devices is probably not really worth pursuing, but technically doable with several adapters (as outlined above).
