My answer to the above question:

The hotel had a duty of care: Do not serve alcohol  to an intoxicated person
The hotel breached the duty: They served alcohol to an intoxicated person
The intoxicated person was injured.
The breach of a duty of care was the proximate cause of the injury.

As you can see all four elements of negligence are evident here, a near classic case of unintentional negligence as none of the defendants had intended to injure anyone. The hotel was liable.
