    accommodation Vs. accommodations

    Hello teachers,

    I looked up the word "accommodation" in Longman Dictionary, it says:

    In British English it's: accommodation.

    But

    In American English it's: accommodations. (with an s at the end)

    This is my question: accommodations in American English with this form (with "s" at the end) is still singular or the "s" refers to it's plural form?
    I also checked the title in the forum but couldn't find any thread related to my question.

    No source/Self made question
    Many thanks in advance

    Re: accommodation Vs. accommodations

    If it's plural then can you use it with numbers or not? For example, three accommodations, four accommodations , etc.

    No. We have arranged for accommodations for our guests at a local hotel.
