+1 to that. Just returned from a week's stay in a short-let apartment in
Brussels, which was certainly completely different from the hotels, guest
houses or bed & breakfast places I could have stayed in (and I chose it
specifically for that reason). This was a single apartment; I've often stayed
in an 'aparthotel' but that should also be classed as =apartment not =hotel.
It would also help to have sub-keys showing the number of apartments and
whether there is a reception, facilities, etc. These are relevant distinctions
for someone using the data to search for appropriate accommodation.
I'm not so sure about tourism=* (I was there for work; most short-term
apartment lets in Brussels are work-related,as was mine.) But since all these
accommodations are so classed, it will have to do.

As a humble surveyor and editor I would ask that we have tourism=apartment at
the first level. An apartment is quite distinct from a hotel and a
guest_house and we already separate out these along with motel, hostel and
chalet at this level. The only debate for myself would be is at to whether
it should be tourism=apartment or tourism=apartments. In many cases you will
have a number of apartments for rent in a apartment building block but not
necessarily all. In which case I presume it would be most appropriate to put
a node in the building area rather than tagging the building area. Would you
therefore need to put in a node for each apartment if it was
