English into French Difficulties

21. What is a “Hôtel” in French?

Of course it can be a Hotel but also, we use the word in more expressions:
Un hôtel de ville: town hall
Un hôtel particulier: town house
Un hôtel de police: police station
L’hôtel des impôts: tax office

So next time you go into a hotel in France, be sure it is not a police station!
