I believe this is not necessary as long as the reception is contained in
only one outline of a relevant feature (hotel, motel etc.), which will
cover almost all cases. Of course, for the special cases you could use a
relation, but that should be limited to those cases.

What I consider a bit odd, by the way, is the amenity key. Receptions
are usually not amenities by themselves, but instead part of an amenity.
Perhaps a new key for this kind of sub-feature would be in order?
