Use of 'sur' for location

I came across these examples: 1)" L'hôtel est rue.."My understanding from this lesson is that 'est rue' can only be used with se promener.2) The 2nd question pertains to whether dans or sur can be used with location E.g." L'hôtel est sur la rue.../la place...  Could you clarify please.

As the lesson states, with streets you either use dans or no preposition at all. Sur is no option in this case.
