History of Hotels
Evidence of hotels and the hospitality industry have been recorded as far back as biblical times when Mary and Joseph arrived in Bethlehem during the census. As the Bible depicts, Mary and Joseph were refused accommodations because there “was no room at the inn.” Since the beginning of time, people have traveled for commerce, religion, family, health, immigration, education, and recreation.

So optimistic in fact, those countries continue to grant building permits to developers of new hotels in anticipation of global increase in holiday.
