    Vocabulary: let's stay in a hotel


    Whether you have planned a few-day trip in a pleasant place, or whether you have to go somewhere for private reasons, you're facing the necessity to book a room. Its comfort will largely depend on your financial situation (or on how much you're ready to spend) and how you're willing to live the experience. 


    You can choose to meet the people and stay in a "B and B" or a boarding house, a Youth Hostel or a YMCA or YWCA ( Young Men/Women Christian Association). You may prefer to keep to yourself or to your loved ones in a two-star, three-star, or more-star hotel with an indoor-swimming pool and a Spa.  








                    Free rooms                         Booking the old-fashioned way                       The Hotel is full                               Booking on the Internet


     A little reminder of an important point of grammar in order to book a room or to organize a stay: a three-night stay; a two-week trip. 

    There are several days or weeks, indeed, but these nouns play the part of an adjective (in a compound adjective) and mustn't be put in the plural. 

    2) The people working in Hotels: 

     The receptionist  = The room/ desk clerk 
     The hotel staff  The barman
     The doorman = the commissionaire 
     A lift man  = an elevator man
     Room service  A chambermaid 
     To book a room   // a night watchman
     To confirm a reservation   To cancel a reservation 
     Full board= 3 meals  Half-board= 2 meals

    3) The different rooms you can rent.

    You can choose to stay in a big chain hotelan inn, or a small typical hotel in the middle of nowhere. 

    You should also decide whether you want to be given full-board, or half-board, or just have breakfast or even have a simple cup of coffee.  



                 A single room        

               A double room  

        A double room (twin beds)


                A family room

                 A motel          

    a "B & B" (Bed and Breakfast)

                  An inn        

                 A Youth Hostel   

      A room for 6 young people      


                  A boarding house   

                Rooms for rent             

    A self-catering accommodation 


    Be careful  ! In the United States, you'll have to choose among several sizes of beds: single ( regular or XL) , double, (Queen, King, Emperor, California King, Caesar...) ( with a few differences according to the States or regions.) 

    You are ready to have a wonderful stay, and a very easy test! Enjoy both.
