I understand that infinity is a concept, however if one were to do: ∞+1, the answer would remain ∞.
Would the same apply to doing ∞1?

Well you can't even say that \[\infty = \infty + 1 \] for reasons @amistre64 mentioned above. Technically neither of your statements are valid. What you may be saying is: \[\lim_{n \rightarrow \infty} n+1=\lim_{n \rightarrow \infty} n1=\lim_{n \rightarrow \infty} n=\infty\] At which point you may notice that the concept of infinity is really dependent on your understanding of a limit.

Very interesting, thanks. However, if we imagine a hotel with an infinite amount of rooms, and each room is filled with a guest, surely the hotel can accomodate an extra guest by asking each guest to move along one room? Thus still having an infinite amount of guests?

I don't see how your analogy goes against what I said earlier.
