Notes

  • To "stay with someone" means to temporarily live with this person, such as staying overnight at your friend's place. It can also include staying together at a place which is the home of neither you nor your friend, such as on a school camp.

  • The word, "stay" is usually used to describe spending at least one night in a hotel or hospital. In English, we do not normally say "live in a hospital" or "live in a hotel". Possible exceptions to that could be if a hotel manager or employee actually lives in the hotel, or if someone is a long-term resident in a hotel (e.g., 6 months or more) and treats it as his/her only home.
