In this episode, John speaks with Bonnie Knutson, Professor at the Michigan State University School of Hospitality Business as she provides insights on how the idea of luxury has changed, how to define it in our present time and how every property (regardless of price point or brand) can give its guests a feeling of luxury – a memory, an experience – to take home with them.
