Do hotels and other similar types of establishments sponsor visas?

Hotels and other hospitality establishments are more likely to sponsor workers for H-2B visas or J-1 visas. The H-2B visa allows employers to bring temporary workers to the U.S. to help with seasonal or peak load work (ex. resort sponsoring H-2B lifeguards during the summer season). The J-1 visa allows employers to bring temporary workers as interns or trainees (ex., a chef trainee in a restaurant). The H-1B visa requires working in a specialty occupation with a specialty degree, while the above two visas do not.
