Besides seeming to denote a sense of scale and exclusivity, the word aligns the facility with a tradition of full-service care - you, your horse, your carriage, your servants were provided food and shelter. Inns often were the only public place a traveler could get food and shelter, often the only place a villager could enjoy food, drink, and a room all in one - the other public social center for the village other than the church or mosque. All those functions split apart into hotels, taverns, pubs, restaurants though now they are often back under one establishment. The word has a rural connotation, but think maybe it's from the Crusades - from the Ottoman word "han" - less comprehensive than a caravansary, more like the Japanese inn or ryokan.
