Also, in some hotels there are extra facilities - these vary enourmously with each hotel - they range from: upgraded complimentary bathroom products, work/writing desk, complimentary flowers, bathrobe etc.
Apartments: Are designed to offer accommodation which is more substantial and similar in some ways to being a 'home'. They normally range from containing one to three separate bedrooms, with a separate lounge area and bathroom, and often sleep two people per room. Apartments also contain a full kitchen or a scaled down version known as a 'kitchenette'.
Suites & Mini Suites: Are designed to offer a more substantial form of accommodation. They normally contain one (possible two) double bedroom. Suites contain a sitting area with lounge style furniture, i.e. a sofa and easy chairs. The term 'mini' when applied to Suite usually refers to the sitting area being quite compact. Suites usually contain a total of three rooms; a bedroom, a bathroom and a sitting room. There is no kitchen in a Suite, though some may provide a microwave oven plus small refrigerator.
