CreditDonkey, a credit card comparison website, released an infographic illustrating the fascinating history of hotels. The history reminds consumers just how far hotel accommodations have come as well as educating them on the sometimes confusing hotel star rating guide.
As revealed by the colorful timeline, the hotel was first established nearly 1,300 years ago in Komatsu, Japan. The Hōshi Yokan hotel and spa is still in operation and owned by the same family over all of these years. As time has passed, hotels have evolved, as demonstrated by these milestones from the history of hotels timeline:
As hotels have made their changes over the centuries, consumers’ expectations have changed as well. These expectations are what drive the hotel rating system, giving travelers an easy to interpret system to help them know what to expect when it comes to hotel amenities.

Of course, the 5-star accommodations come at a price. But, as explained by CreditDonkey, these costs are now more easily offset by hotel rewards cards.
“When we travel, we look for a place where we can relax and sleep comfortably at the end of the day,” said Charles Tran, founder of CreditDonkey. “By paying special attention to the star rating system, travelers can increase their odds of being happy with their hotel choice. And when taking advantage of hotel credit cards, consumers can more easily bump their stay from a 3-star to a 4-star or 5-star hotel without having to increase their travel budget.”
