Good morning. Your current J-1 visa is ONLY applicable for your current J-1 exchange program and under your current program sponsor, the hotel. If you completed your current J-1 program, under the law you are expected to depart the United States.
You can pursue a 2nd J-1 exchange program (in a different category and with a different J-1 sponsor), will need to apply for a new J-1 visa for your new exchange program and new J-1 sponsor – in order to reenter the U.S. for the 2nd program.
