The History of Hotels
Traveling always existed even way back in time like the biblical times. In those days, traveling was done due to health reasons, immigration and religion reasons.
In the past, hotels were just normal houses offered for guests to stay in. Some were in the form of inns. These were situated near ports for sailors to spend their night during their short breaks in the country. Usually the room just consisted of a bed that was big enough for two people.
The first American inn existed way back in 1607. The first advertised hotel was advertised in 1792 and was called the 'City Hotel' and was situated in New York. The next popular hotel which was build afterwards was located in Boston. It was called 'Tremont Hotel and was considered modern for those days.
Eventually, from then on, more hotels were built and this gave birth to the hospitality industry which also led to the classification with the star system. The star system was assessed by: the price, the hotel's standard of service, and the hotel's facilities offered.
