IMHO this isn't about "rendering", few people would look at a rendered map
when looking for accomodation (usually you'd search in a db / with a
query). We already have a system where we distinguish on the first level
much more than "there is accomodation of some kind here", (IMHO that's
good), so distinguishing an apartment from a hotel or a B&B / guest house
or from a hostel does make sense - IMHO also at this very first level.
