  3. Lead in Kinds of hotels in the United States: Places to stay for a short time may be called hotels, hostels, motels or motor hotels, inns, lodges or resorts. Hostels, also referred to as youth hostels, are often for students working away from home. Motels have plenty of parking space and are usually near a freeway of highway. Inns are usually motels. Lodges and resorts, or resorts hotels, are in the mountains, on the coast, or near lakes.

  4. Lead in Kinds of beds: Beds go by many different names. Starting with the smallest, there are single, twin, double, queen and king size ones. “Long boys” are for exceptionally tall people. At some hotels, queen beds are the smallest size used, so a double room has two of them. Some hotels even offer their guests waterbeds. A rollaway can be moved into a room to sleep an extra person. Hide-a-beds are sofas that fold out to make beds.

  5. Lead in People working in hotels: Desk clerks make reservations, check people in and out of the hotel, take care of keys, and handle problems. Switchboard operators answer the phone and transfer calls to the people who are being called. Room service waiters take orders for food and drinks in people’s rooms, bring the orders and sometimes take the dirty dishes away. Maids clean the rooms and change the sheets. A bell-man or a bell-boy carries hotel guests’ bags to their rooms.

  6. Lead in Facilities in hotels: The front desk is where you find the desk clerk. People go there to check in or out, to turn in or pick up their keys, their mail and messages, or to complain about something in the hotel. Lobbies are big, open rooms near the front desk. Usually people go there to meet friends. Lounges are comfortable bars. People go there to have a drink and relax. Suites are sets of rooms --- usually a bed room and living room, sometimes with a kitchen --- that you can rent in a hotel. Meeting rooms are for meetings. People rent them to meet other people or talk about business when they don’t want to do it in their rooms. Game rooms have games like pool, billiard, backgammon, chess, etc., in them. People go there to play these games and relax. Gift shops have souvenirs, books, and cards. Bars are sometimes built around pianos. People can sit very close to the piano and listen to the music.
