As far as I know all US airlines will provide a hotel if the flight is cancelled due to MX, or crew, or another issue in the airlines control but I doubt they do for weather, its an act of god and airlines are not required to do much other then rebook you on the next available flight, they dont have to rebook you on another airline but they often do as a courtesy in waether situations.

According to the new EU passenger rights, to be seen at:
the practice of ryanair is illegal.
"in case of cancellations, passengers will receive ... hotel accommodation, when a cancellation obliges a passenger to stay overnight, reimbursement, when a cancellation delays a passenger for at least five hours."

My wife and I were awaiting a USAirways Express flight from ABE-BOS
one late summer evening when in came a nasty string of T storms..they
cancelled our flight. We weren't expecting overnight accomodations, however,
my wife noticed a young mother with her child obviously distressed and went
to the counter to help her. She (the mother) was trying to get USAirways
to do something for her. My wife chimed in and soon enough they gave the
woman a voucher for a hotel room. As my wife started to walk away, the
supervisor called her and gave us one as well.
