hello..

why i should say 5 star hotel not 5 stars ?

and why most of people say 5 stars hotel ?
These are correct:

It is a five-star hotel.

The hotel has five stars.

When used as an adjective, nouns are normal singular: a ten-minute coffee break, a three-day trek. Most people do NOT say '5 stars hotel'.

more explanation pls ..

The units of a numerical noun modifier are singular.

e.g a five-thousand-meter race, a seven-day holiday, a five-period school day

What about other situations, like when we talk about the design of a 5-star logo:

This is a symbolic five-star

Or, These are symbolic five-stars

Which one is correct? and why?

Thank you in advance.

Neither seems right without the noun.

This is a five-star symbol.

These are five-star symbols.

Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.

This is a five-star symbols is similar to: five-star hotels, I understand that,

But the question is about using 5-star instead of 5-stars when it's the last word in the sentence and without the noun (ex: hotels)? like I asked before you reply.

Let's say we want to create a new brand name that depends on the 5-star evaluation (similar to hotels),

Which one is correct in English : Metallic five-star (or) Metallic five-stars?

Best regards.
