how do you manage to get the water in the bottles to equal to start the generator in the hotel basement?

I think its a bit of trial and error.

Pour the water in the 5L bottle then transfer it into the 3L bottle. Pour the remaining water back into the jug then pour the water from the 3L bottle back into the 5L bottle.

By the way, welcome to the pond.

Solution to bottles:

Fill 5 L and empty to 3L: Now: 3L = (3L), 5L = (2L).
Empty 3L into bottle: Now: 3L = (0L)
Empty 5L to 3: Now 3L = (2L)
Fill 5L from bottle,
Pour 5L into 3L: Now 5L has 4L
