History of Hotel
Inns have served travellers since ancient times. The location of hotels has always been related to the transportation available. During colonial times hotels were usually situated in seaport towns, but by the end of the 18th century, many inns and taverns were constructed to offer lodgings along highway routes. After the construction of railroads in the 19th century, larger hotels were built near railroad stations to accommodate railway travellers. Standards of service and comfort rose appreciably and in the larger cities the types of lodging offered by certain hotels became luxurious.
The mail box can be your doorway to the world. Because they connect each country. Through it you can go into nearly every country in the world. Each postage stamp becomes a personal messenger of your letter.
If your letter, documents, postcard, or package is going overseas, they will pass through many hands and perhaps many lands. It is the duty of our postal service to see that your mail gets to its destination as quickly as possible.
Much of the world’s business depends upon the postal service. That’s why most nations cooperate closely on postal matters. The mail always goes through. A flood in China or India, or an earthquake in Turkey or Iran may cause a delay, but new routes are quickly found and mail is still delivered.
Basically, mail is handled in the same way in almost every country. A stamped letter is mailed from the post office or mail box. The mail is collected from the mailboxes on a regular schedule. All letters, postcards and small parcels are taken to a central post office which employ many people.
People sometimes need hotels if they travel far from homes. They sometimes need hotels when they arrive in cities late at night and they do not have any relatives there.
Hotels are places that provide lodging and usually meals and various personal services for the public. A good hotel provides many comforts and conveniences. Travel is usually safe and pleasant.
Hotels with hundreds of rooms are common. People can find the advertisements of the hotels in newspapers, brochurs, the internet, and magazines. Downtown hotels survive and prosper because of two important factors. First business travellers wish to stay close to the offices or industrial plants they plan to visit. Second, the location of the airport is close to the hotels.
As the pace of jet travel grows, hotels spring up near airports. Some travellers stay at airport inns when their flights are delayed. To save time, business executives often select airport hotels for meetings or conferences. Once the plane lands, the hotel is only minutes away.
