There are several types of vacation rentals including studios, houses, apartments, cabins, villas, cottages, chalets, castles, etc.

A Hotel is an establishment that provides paid lodging, usually on a short-term basis. Basic accommodation consist of a room with one or 2 beds, and an en-suite bathroom. Hotels typically have several common areas such as lobbies, restaurants, pools, meeting rooms, gyms, etc.
