The top factors influencing a guest’s choice in hotel accommodation according to STR Research in May 2021 are: location, price & value for money, cancellation policy, previous stay, positive reviews/personal recommendations.
As the lights begin to brighten on a dimmed world of the post-COVID era, the hospitality and tourism sectors have started to gain traction again. It is now time for hotels to take this opportunity to create innovative ways to earn new customers and regain lost revenue.
Cayuga Hospitality Consultants is delighted to announce the addition of three new hospitality consultants, Jens Busch, David Salcfas, and Haydee Cruz, each with diverse areas of expertise. They are ready to help hospitality clients succeed in achieving their business goals and objectives.
There is a lot of movement in hospitality leadership positions today. You need to seize the moment when you start in a new leadership role. It is your opportunity to demonstrate how you will build trust, earn your employees respect and use sound judgement.
The lodging industry is estimated to report a 50 percent, nearly $125 billion-dollar loss in 2020 making this year the worst year in history for the hotel industry, just the hotels and not travel overall.
