My name is ***** ***** I would love to help. The next step would be for me to see pictures of the mark on the bottom (all pics were of three duplicates of the same pot) so that I can get visual clues of the date and value. Use the Add Files feature on your screen to add pictures.

This is a silver plated (not sterling) hotel ware tea pot made by Reed and Barton in pattern number 2300C and shape number 26. The hotel ware was pattern numbers 2300 to 3000. The chamber stick symbol is the date code for 1955 and the 1p represents the capacity of 1 pint. Silver soldered is a term that means silver solder was used on the attached pieces (spout, handle, lid). The logo is not familiar to me, but is most likely a hotel like you had suggested. This pot has a current value of $15.00 to $20.00 retail.
