What is "specialty lodging"?

What does Tripadvisor define as specialty lodging?

One of the hotels we are seriously considering for our trip to Paris is the Hotel Littre, which is listed under the specialty lodging category, but looks like a hotel to me.

What is the reason for listing it there instead of under hotels?

(If anyone has an opinion on this hotel , it would, of course, be welcome as well)

Yes. Hotel Littre is a hotel. It probably got classified as a 'specialty lodging' by mistake. When it's pulled up the name shown on the top right of the TA page says 'Hotel Le Littre Lodge, Paris'.

At first I though there must have been two hotels the same name, and a bit of confusion, Then I realised - a hotel can claim to be left bank even though it's within spitting distance of Montparnasse tower, the same way that any hotel north of the river can claim to be in the Marais...
