Categorization of Hotels in India

The word hotel is derived from the French word ‘hotel’ means town house, which is not a place for accommodation. Gradually, it was considered as a place for short time stay.

As decades passed, basic accommodation of a room with only a bed, cupboard, small table and a washstand has been largely replaced by rooms with en-suite bathrooms, mini bar and restaurants.

Since last decade of 20th century, heavy competition has occurred due to the enormous increase in tourism worldwide. To survive this, hotel industries have been drastically improved their way of service in hospitality.

Hotels are categorized on the basis of location, duration of stay, the level of service, ambience and Target market. Here we discuss the hotels based on target market and length of stay.
