Preposition + Q. word + pronoun + verb + rest of the sentence
Preposition - À
Question word - quel
Pronoun - ils
Verb - vont
Rest of sentence - rester
So do we always toss the noun in with the question word?

The sentence templates are in the lesson I posted in the first post.
The question is still are we to always include the noun with the question word for proper grammar.
It's never mentioned in the tutorial. They say write the question word, but they write the question word and a noun.

The template that we've given here is a general template, which works with all question words. The only difference in your example is that "quel" is a special question word, which is always accompanied with a noun (like the question word "which" in English), which is why it's directly followed by the noun "hôtel" here.
So you're right that to be very specific we could have written "question word group" on the template, to make it clear that question words like "quel" are always directly followed by the noun they accompany. That's always the case, even if there's no preposition in the question, so it doesn't change our point here that prepositions go at the beginning of questions, unlike in English.
Quelle couleur tu préfères?
À quel hôtel ils vont rester?
Dans quel magasin je peux trouver ça?
De quoi vous parlez?
Pour quand est-ce qu'elle veut son billet?
Avec qui tu as mangé?
Hope it helps!
