Hi again,

I was wondering what is the difference between 'extension' and 'annexe' said of a hotel with additional buildings. Can the two be used and when?
Many thanks

    'The hotels have a number of extensions and annexes awaiting the tourists and guests.'
    I guess this implies that there definitely is a difference b/n the two.

    My guess is that an "extension" would be attached to the original building, and an "annex" would be a separate, probably smaller, building.

    Me again. As I understand it, an extension of a hotel is joined to the building and an annexe is a separate building. At least that is the way it is in hotels in Spain.;)
