Bus/Financial - Tourism & Travel / Hotel category
French term or phrase: gros porteur
Hi

This is a category of hotels with a lot of rooms (over a thousand in this instance).

I thought perhaps "large capacity" but I'm looking for the exact term used in the hotel industry, assuming there is one.

Thanks in advance for your help.
