    down the street.

    When you say "down" the street, does it mean "at the lower part" of a slanted street or just "along" a street?

    W: Are there other hotels in this town, then?
    M : There are just two hotels here. The other is right down the street.

    Re: down the street.

    It could mean either. If the street is on a hill, then "down" likely indicates a direction. Otherwise, it simply means it is on the street.
