Hotel

A hotel is an establishment that provides lodging paid on a short-term basis. The provision of basic accommodation, in times past, consisting only of a room with a bed, a cupboard, a small table and a washstand has largely been replaced by rooms with modern facilities, including en-suite bathrooms and air conditioning or climate control. Additional common features found in hotel rooms are a telephone, an alarm clock, a television, a safe, a mini-bar with snack foods and drinks, and facilities for making tea and coffee. Luxury features include bathrobes and slippers, a pillow menu, twin-sink vanities, and jacuzzi bathtubs. Larger hotels may provide additional guest facilities such as a swimming pool, fitness center, business center, childcare, conference facilities and social function services

Famous quotes containing the word hotel:

    Never relinquish clothing to a hotel valet without first specifically telling him that you want it back.
    Fran Lebowitz (b. 1950)

    I’ve always thought a hotel ought to offer optional small animals.... I mean a cat to sleep on your bed at night, or a dog of some kind to act pleased when you come in. You ever notice how a hotel room feels so lifeless?
    Anne Tyler (b. 1941)

    They all see you when you least suspect.
    Out flat in your p.j.’s glowering at T.V.
    or at the oven gassing the cat
    or at the Hotel 69 head to knee.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
