    Both are fine; I generally use 'at'.

    I would normally use "at" if I was specifying a particular hotel:

    Last year, we stayed at The Hilton.
    Next week, I'll be staying at The Sheraton.

    I would also normally use "at" for an unspecified hotel:

    On holiday last year, we stayed at a great hotel.
    My boyfriend and I are going to stay at a romantic hotel for our anniversary.

    I would use "in" for the parts of a hotel:

    I was in my hotel room.
    We were in the hotel restaurant.
