BARCELONA, Spain - Shiji, the global technology brand, is thrilled to announce the release of Shiji ReviewPro's Guest Experience Benchmark for the second quarter of 2023, featuring two major additions designed to empower hoteliers worldwide in assessing hotel performance: the City Hotel Rankings and City Benchmark sections.
In this latest Q2 report, Shiji added rankings for the top 5-star, 4-star, and 3-star hotels in prominent cities such as New York, London, Dubai, Sydney, Cape Town, and Rio de Janeiro. Furthermore, the benchmark report presents rankings for 50 of the world's most iconic cities based on their average Guest Review Index (GRI). This comprehensive Guest Experience Benchmark report stands as the most extensive examination of online reputation within the hospitality industry currently available.
Some key insights from the Q2 2023 report:
- Beijing, Lisbon, and Rio de Janeiro emerged as the top three cities with the highest-rated hotels
- Hotels are steadily recovering their review scores, with the Asia-Pacific region leading the way
- Global review volume experienced a remarkable increase of nearly 20%, although it remains 8% below the levels seen in Q2 2019.
- Booking.com maintains the highest volume of reviews with 39.2% of the total but has lost 8.7% market share from Q2 2022
When we created the Guest Experience Benchmark Report our aim was to equip hoteliers with real, actionable insights that can help their properties improve. We are excited to include the top hotels and cities for the first time, which will help provide invaluable concrete benchmarks for hotels all around the world. Neil James, CEO of Shiji ReviewPro
