Nov. 18, 2009 - PRLog -- Traveling always existed even way back in time like the biblical times.  In those days, traveling was done due to health reasons, immigration and religion reasons.

In the past, hotels were just normal houses offered for guests to stay in.  Some were in the form of inns.  Various hotels were situated near ports for sailors to spend their night during their short breaks in the country.  Usually the room just consisted of a bed that was big enough for two people.  

The first American inn existed way back in 1607.  The first advertised hotel was advertised in 1792 and was called the ‘City Hotel’.  This hotel was situated in New York.  The next popular hotel which was build afterwards was located in Boston.  The hotel was called ‘Tremont Hotel and was considered modern for those days.

Eventually, from then on, more were built and this gave birth to the hotel’s industry which also led to the classification of the hotels with the star system. The star system was assessed by: the price, the hotel’s standard of service, and the hotel’s facilities offered.
Hotel owners started giving importance to the hotel’s location.  Hotel owners started targeting good passing trade locations to build and operate their hotel to maximise their profits.  

There are various types of hotels, ranging from business hotels, budget hotels and luxurious hotels.  

The Budget hotel is targeted more towards providing a hotel with the basic necessities that include a bed and a shower.  These types of hotels are targeted towards travelers who seek to minimize their expenses.  These types of hotels fall in the range of one to three star hotels.

Another type of hotel is the Business hotel.  These types of hotels are targeted towards business travelers and the hotel’s rooms include the basic necessities like bed and bathroom, internet connection, ironing boards, coffee machines, hairdryers and daily delivery of the newspaper to the hotel’s respective rooms.  The Business hotel rates are more expenses than those of Budget hotels.  These types of hotels usually fall in the range of four to five star hotels.

The third type of hotel is the Luxury hotel.  A luxurious hotel will have more than just basic necessities and will be the most expensive but the most comfortable! A luxury hotel will have ballrooms, pools, and indulging relaxation facilities like spas.  The hotels’ rooms would be full of comforts, beautiful rooms with comfortable beds, bigger bathrooms and separate sitting area.  As outlined earlier, these types of hotels are more expensive and the more central the area, the more expensive the hotel is.  The more luxurious the hotel is, the higher the star rating it has.  Usually Luxury hotels fall in the range of four to five star hotels.

Nowadays people find various types of hotels that depend on the country’s lifestyle and standard of living.  The hotel industry gave a great impact to the economic sector due to its revenue creation that helps to improve the countries’ wellbeing.
