Hotels are similar to petrol stations in that many are independently owned
and operated but rely heavily on the brand for marketing. Coffee shops,
fastfood restaurants and any other franchise-business fall into the same
bucket (starbucks, mcdonalds, home depot, Teleflora). name, operator, and
brand would normally be 3 different things in these cases.
