Huésped o invitado

Huésped o invitado


Both of these palabras seem to mean guest or visitor. Can they be used interchangeably or is there a specific connotation to one or the other?

Huesped is like a guest in a hotel. Most of the time you should use invitado. I say this because my friend Maria has told me this when I asked her the same.

Huesped - Guest at hotel or some place that costs money etc... Invitado - Most other uses. People you invite over to your house etc... Cliente - Customers or guests at a restaurant etc...
