Traveling is a broad term for any sort of long-distance or overseas journey. It also encompasses tourism, which is all of the aspects of the service industry that cater to people traveling for a variety of purposes.
Hotels are establishments that offer overnight accommodation for travelers on a short-term basis. They range in size from small “mom-and-pop” joints with just a few rooms to large resorts with hundreds of rooms. The atmosphere in a hotel can vary significantly depending on the owners and their vision for the place. I’ve stayed in quiet hostels that were completely empty, and loud party hotels where it was impossible to have a conversation without shouting over the music.
Some people enjoy staying in hotels when they’re traveling for business because it can help them focus on their work without distractions. They may also find that their stay is more enjoyable than a hostel because hotels have better amenities and services like gyms and pools. They may also have concierges or travel desks that can help them arrange tours and activities for their time in the destination city.
Another benefit of staying in a hotel while you’re traveling is that it gives you the opportunity to explore your surroundings on your own schedule. This means you can avoid the crowds that are a part of most tourist attractions in popular destinations. It can also be easier on your wallet because many restaurants and day tour companies raise their prices during high season.
