I hope it is a double room for that money!

Ten million for the hotel in this case, I'd think, not for a room. :)

In english you don't have to, but I assume you have to pluralize the thousand, million, billion or whatever in cases like this? "två miljoner" as opposed to "två miljon"?

Yes, miljon/miljard (million/billion) has to be pluralized when referring to more than one. Tusen (thousand) doesnt need that though, so it's just "tre tusen kronor", for example.

So, what numbers are not plural? Så, vad nummer är plural inte? (Was that right?)

No, that's Vilka nummer är inte plural? or Vad för, but not just Vad.

That's just the way Swedish works.

Why not millions instead of million?

It's not grammatical in English.

Is it colloquial to say this? Should we include the word dollars as in English?

No, it's fine to not include it in either language.
