Checking my unabridged Webster:  a "hostler" is someone who takes care of horses at an inn or hotel, while a "hosteler" is someone who manages an inn or hotel, but this latter usage is considered "archaic" or "obsolete," so we're left wondering whether Norman managed the hotel, itself, or managed the hotel's stable.
