Today, museum hotels consist of both facilities with ethnographic artifacts containing recent experiences and facilities intertwined with ancient artifacts. In this study, the definition and classification of museum hotels, which do not have an official definition in the world and in Turkey, were made. In the second stage of the study, 4 (four) hotels in Turkey, which have been excavated and registered in the hotel campus, were included in the scope of the study. These hotels are Antique Hotel (Istanbul-Beyazid), Eresin Hotels Sultanahmet (Istanbul), Museum Hotel Antakya (Hatay), RuinAdalia Hotel (Kaleici-Antalya). Lastly, the historical processes of these four hotels were examined and spatial analyzes of the RuinAdalia Hotel in Antalya Kaleici were made. It is thought that this study will clarify the terminology between a museum and a hotel and eliminate the confusion in this subject. In addition, in the context of the examined hotels, the positive and negative aspects of the arrangements made in the interiors of the hotels with archaeological findings will be determined in terms of the findings and will create an infrastructure for the designers who will work on this subject in the future.
