Sleeping the Big Sleep?

John Malkovich's The Big Sleep Hotel

Given that PI protagonist Philip Marlowe explains that "the big sleep" is a synonym for death in Raymond Chandler's famous novel of the same name, you've got to wonder about the decision to give a British hotel the same moniker.

The fact that John Malkovich is an investor in the chain, and "is an ardent supporter of the death penalty," does nothing to add to my desire to check in for a night.
