After doing some analysis, I figured that the space between the bed and the wall was always at least about 7-8". This small space is what helped us to shape the dimensions for what is now known as an Urban Shelf. No nightstand existed that could accommodate for this small useable space and allow for easy portability.
An Urban Shelf placed against the wall side of a hotel room bed would allow most charging cords to reach the outlet, as well as provide the perfect place for a phone while sleeping. Using the shelf in the room for a multiple day stay is where is really shines - especially when you begin to rely on its practicality. Urban Shelf has become a 1 lb travel accessory that I always keep in my laptop bag.
