1. Genetive case is correct here. You can also say "See you in an hour"

2. "There IS more than one chair in the room"

Albert, 

 

For (1) Gabe is correct, the genitive case is best.  The genitive is grammar-lingo that means possessive.  In this case, we use the possessive of 'hour'.

 

Here are some helpful constructions for dealing with (2).  

 

There is more than one. . .

(There is no more. . .)

 

There are some more . . . (cookies, for example)

(There aren't any more . . .)

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

 

Kim
