Which is correct?
The man told the tourists he could take them to the cheapest hotel, but he then seemed to be taking them to a residential area rather than (a hotel / to a hotel).

"...to a hotel" is correct. "...a hotel " is not incorrect, but does not communicate as clearly. The word 'to' implied rather than stated

In a more colloquial contest you might say "rather than a hotel" but in this rather formal context you should use the full phrase, "rather than to a hotel".

In my opinion, '....rather than to a hotel' sounds better, but I can imagine some native speakers omitting 'to a'.
