Freebase

  1. 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in times past, consisting only of a room with a bed, a cupboard, a small table and a washstand has largely been replaced by rooms with modern facilities, including en-suite bathrooms and air conditioning or climate control.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. Hotel rooms are usually numbered to allow guests to identify their room. Some hotels offer meals as part of a room and board arrangement. In the United Kingdom, a hotel is required by law to serve food and drinks to all guests within certain stated hours. In Japan, capsule hotels provide a minimized amount of room space and shared facilities.

Examples of hotel in a Sentence

  1. Jeb Bush:

    He treats the person, you know, that is serving in a hotel the same way he would treat the head of state, strength is not defined by the volume of your voice or, you know, the outrageous things you say. It's the fortitude and integrity that you show when people aren't watching.

  2. Jeff Zalaznick:

    Nick McCabe said. The city’s hotels, meanwhile, are making big moves to accommodate the increasing numbers of luxury consumers. Last month, Aria introduced a luxury collection called The Tower Suites. Guests travel to and from the airport in limousines, they’re greeted at curbside and there is a dedicated entrance and private VIP lounge for speedy check-in. As soon as guests book a stay, the Tower Suites concierge reaches out to book dinner reservations and arrange show tickets. 5 best shows to see in Las Vegas This fall, Encore at the Wynn completed a design refresh, updating all suites to include push-button electronic amenities. It added custom linens and floor coverings and commissioned an amenities collection from top-of-the-line cosmetics and fragrance company Molton Brown. Meanwhile, Caesars will mark its 50th anniversary in 2016 with a $ 75 million renovation of its Roman Tower, which will be renamed the Julius Tower next month. While the behemoth resorts expand their luxury offerings, smaller boutique properties that offer a more intimate upscale experience have been opening. Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace debuted in 2013, and Delano Las Vegas and Delano Las Vegas opened last year. One of the smallest hotels, the Parisian-themed The Cromwell, opened last year with only 188 rooms, all with hardwood floors, glamorous boudoir lighting and chaise lounges. Guests are invited to a Moet Chandon toast with the general manager on Friday and Saturday nights. Ultra luxury packages at new Drai’s offer fireworks and private jets But Vegas ’ biggest draw might be its endless bounty of celebrity chef-driven restaurants. Recent eateries from boldfaced names in an already saturated market include three-Michelin-starred Alain Ducasse’s Rivea at Delano Las Vegas, two-Michelin-starred Julian Serrano’s Lago at Bellagio and two-Michelin-starred Michael Mina’s Bardot Brasserie at Aria. Two popular restaurants from other cities have just opened outposts in Delano Las Vegas. In October, the New York City hot spot Carbone( whose fans include Michelle Obama and Kim Kardashian) opened at Aria. Just like New York, Delano Las Vegas is Delano Las Vegas. We try to differentiate ourselves by not only serving excellent food but by creating a unique experience.

  3. Tom Rinaldi:

    Before this trip, I'd interviewed Roger Federer dozens of times, but on this trip, in planes, locker rooms and hotel suites, and through police motorcades, my understanding of Roger Federer was almost completely recast, the reach of Roger Federer fame, the reserves of Roger Federer energy, the connection Roger Federer has with fans — all were unlike anything I'd ever witnessed. More than once, fans wept seeing Roger Federer.

  4. Elfrida Efi:

    It passed overhead a few times, really low, there was fire and black smoke. The third time it came by it crashed into the roof of the hotel and exploded straight away.

  5. Thom Mayne:

    For the 7132 hotel and arrival, the incredible setting demands reducing materiality and presence in the design so that, as in all our work, the connection to site becomes paramount, as much as possible, the hotel is a minimalist act that reiterates the site and offers to the viewer a mirrored, refracted perspective of the landscape.
