Temporary Housing

Buster is American English slang for man, and it is frequently used as a derogatory form of address. Accommodation is used to refer to buildings or rooms where people live or stay, often, but not necessarily so, for a short period of time. In America, use the term accommodations. Facilities—or amenities—are additional services that are provided for people’s convenience, enjoyment or comfort, which are useful from a recreational standpoint, but not essential. Amenities in hotels include, among other things, shopping centres, health clubs, conference halls, and banqueting rooms. With the Easter holidays round the corner, I only hope you booked the right sort of lodgings.
