Which is correct please 'an hotel' or a hotel'
You will see 'an hotel' used in some older British texts- in the past, some speakers did not pronounce the 'h', but that would be very rare now.
I don't think it's dialectal.
A long time ago, at school, they told me to say "an hotel" instead of "a hotel".
I did that ever since
Originally, people, mostly of the higher classes, dropped the 'h' on words of French origin, I believe.
In Flemish we do now,... not so sure if we did it 50 years ago....a lot of people probably not.Did you pronounce the "h" in hotel?
As Tdol says, there was a lot of French influence in these days and in French the "h" is not pronounced.
Hehe,... I didn't belong to that classpeople, mostly of the higher classes,
