It is completely ironic that Holden despises (or says he hates) materialistic, phony people, and yet, that's exactly who he surrounds himself with. Also, he condemns his former roomates because of their sexual antics, and yet, when he checks into the hotel he isn't any better than they are. He is a hypocrite at every turn.
