Traveling and Hotels

Traveling and hotels

Traveling and hotels are a key element of travel and tourism, providing accommodation to travellers while visiting places. They can vary greatly in size, atmosphere and range of services provided, ranging from small “mom-and-pop” joints with just a few rooms to massive resorts. They can also differ by their star rating, with different governing bodies and travel tour operators setting their own criteria for what constitutes a four-star hotel, or even allowing properties to self-rate themselves based on the amenities they provide.

The term boutique hotel is often used to denote a luxury property, while budget hotels may be more modest in facilities and amenities. Larger hotels may use separate brands to cater to a particular price range – for example, the Radisson chain operates the Embassy Suites full-service all-suite hotels, while its Motel 6 and Campanile chains are aimed at more basic motel-style accommodation.

Hotels usually have set check-in and check-out times allowing them to manage their occupancy more effectively, and they may offer special rates for advance bookings. They may also partner with online booking aggregator websites and travel agencies, as well as offer their own booking portals. Airlines, railways and ferry operators sometimes act as intermediaries in the distribution of hotel rooms.

Despite the popularity of hostels, hotels remain an important part of the tourism industry and offer many advantages. They can be a more convenient option for those travelling as part of a family or group, or for business, who need more privacy and flexibility. They are also often the best choice for those with mobility issues or for people who prefer to avoid the noise and chaos of a shared hostel.
