      Hello Katherine,

      We equally use both: отель and гостиница. Гостиница is originally a Russian word that comes from гость (quest) and гостить (be on a visit, to stay with). Отель is adopted from French. I can’t tell you when it was adopted, but it definitely happened a while ago. The word отель is present in most dictionaries.
