What are usual hotels
Well, you could define the usual hotels as the ones which provide everything what hotels are supposed to (cave hotels, underwater hotels and such hotels don't come under the category of 'usual hotels').

A usual hotel can be defined as an establishment which is engaged in the provision of lodging for a payment, generally for a short period of time. In the olden days, hotels would be quite basic, providing just a room with a bed, a cupboard for keeping the stuff you bring with you, a table and a washstand. However, nowadays, most hotels have most of the modern facilities, including en - suite bathrooms and A/Cs or climate control.

Some other fairly common features which are part and parcel of modern hotels include telephone, alarm clock, a TV and internet connectivity. Snacks and drinks are provided through a mini - bar, as will be facilities for making a hot drink. The bigger ones have more facilities for guest, including a restaurant, a swimming pool for some 'aqua - time', childcare, and would even have conference and facilities for social events.

Some of the 'usual' hotels have, as part of their package, meals. In the UK, according to the law, the hotel should serve drinks and food to all of its tenants within particular hours; some hotels manage to bypass this law by calling themselves private hotels, which are not subject to this law.

In Australia and Canada, a hotel may also include pub or bar facilities. In India, hotel could also mean a restaurant, since most of the better restaurants were located near a good hotel.

You will be able to decipher the amount of services available to you as a guest by looking at how much the room costs and their quality. With the boom of tourism in the latter part of the 20th century, the standard of most hotels, especially the smaller ones, have improved. In order for it to be easier for people to compare the type of service between hotels when choosing one, the ratings system has been brought into effect, with 1 - 5 stars being the criterion for quality. The more stars the hotel has, the better it is. Hotels are studied by an independent group, and the number of stars given relies to a large extent on the amount of facilties provided.

This is generally considered unfair to smaller hotels due to the fact that the quality of the rooms could come under a particular class, but the fact that they don't have an elevator would stop it from getting a better rating.
