There can be multiple connections to the same port. The port of the server (the hotel) can accept multiple connections depending upon the maximum connections it can handle. In case of ODBC, I believe it depends on the number of PEs and each PEs can handle 120 connections.
The port on the client, i.e., your PC, will only use one port at a time, that it randomly picks. So, first time you connect, your port would be, say, 1043, but the server port would be 1025, in case of ODBC (23 in case of telnet). When you connect again, you will have an additional port on your client, say, 1044, but the server port would remain the same.
So, the analogy of hotel/chair is not correct.
Hope this helps.
