A hotel is a place where people can pay money for a room with a bed when away from their home, such as when they are traveling or simply want a night away. Despite its official meaning, this emoji is more frequently used as a hospital given the large "H" displayed on the side of the building. An "H" is commonly used on maps and street signs to mark the location of a hospital.
