It wasn’t so long ago that hotels were simply rooms with a bed that travelers slept in for the night.  We’ve come a long way since then.  Hotels today can be an oasis of luxury with every amenity that you can imagine.  You can rest your head on an incredibly comfortable bed, have room service delivered to your door and get pampered in the spa in the lobby.

Hotels are now big business and the growth of the hotel industry is incredible.  Hotel stays and business travel represent billions of dollars in revenue all over the world.  The competition in the hotel industry is also fierce and that has worked in favor of the traveler.

We look at the hotel industry around the globe and discuss the trends, rates, amenities provided and everything to do with hotels including their marketing strategies. I’ve been in the industry for over 20 years, and I hope to bring you some good insights.
