What is hotel?


A hotel is a place that travelers and tourists can stay while they are visiting a particular place. They almost always stay in hotels for a bed to sleep in at night, but a hotel can also offer other benefits.


These benefits can include meals (especially breakfast, but some hotels have restaurants for lunch or dinner), a gym for working out, a pool or hot tub to relax in, and someone who will tidy and clean the room each day.

They are typically meant for short stays, up to about a week, but can be stayed in for longer periods of time if someone really wants to do so.


Hotels are typically higher class, which is a contrast to hostels or motels. Hostels often have several people staying in the same room in exchange for a cheaper price, and motels are have older or worse accommodations or service quality for prices in between those of hostels and hotels.
