où vs dans laquelle etc

The week (in which) they stayed at the hotel went quickly.

?....La semaine pendant laquelle ils sont restés...?

This question relates to:
French lesson "Où = where AND when (relative pronouns)"

is a relative pronoun that can also mean "when". That doesn't necessarily mean that everytime you use où in French, "when" is the best way to translate it in English, however.

For example: La semaine ils sont restés à l'hôtel... -- The week they stayed in the hotel...

In this example, you wouldn't ordinarily use "when" in English, although you could.
