NEW DELHI, INDIA - April 4, 2017 - As per a Forrester survey of over 2, 100 travelers commissioned by TripAdvisor, 81% of travelers suggest reviews are important, while only 3% suggest they were not. However, almost half of the respondents to the survey said they would not book a hotel unless it had reviews.

Another report published by the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration, online reviews of hotels are increasingly having an impact on room demand and now appear to be responsible for rate swings of more than 10%,
With so many travelers trusting online reviews before their room booking, it has become vital for hotels to pay special consideration to their Guest Reviews. A hotel’s ranking on TripAdvisor is increasingly becoming an essential criterion both for hotel and traveler community. This has gained importance because TripAdvisor pays special attention to the content and authenticity of the reviews.

Mobile Technology: Relentless Innovation

Technology has become a crucial component in attracting and retaining hotel guests, and the need to enhance a guest’s technology experience is driving a relentless pace of innovation. To meet and exceed guest expectations, 54% of hotels will spend more on technology in 2018, and mobile solutions in particular will top the list of capital investments. Many hotels are integrating mobile booking, mobile keys, mobile payments and mobile check-in into their operations. Other hotels are emphasizing the in-room experience, boosting bandwidth and upgrading flat screen TVs to more easily interface with guest mobile devices. And though not yet mainstream, there are many exciting technology developments on the near horizon. The Internet of Things (loT) is taking form in some places, and can be found in guest room control systems, voice activation systems, and in wearable sensors that can be used for access and payment options. Virtual reality headsets are available at some hotels so guests can enjoy virtual trips to exotic locations or if off-property, preview conference facilities and guest rooms. How long will it be before a hotel employs a fleet of robots for room service, or utilizes a hologram as a concierge, or installs gesture-controlled walls that feature interactive digital displays? Some hotels are already using augmented reality for translation services, or interactive wall maps, or even virtual décor. This pace of innovation is challenging property owners and brands to stay on top of the latest technology trends while still addressing current projects. The January Hotel Business Review will explore what some hotels are doing to maximize their opportunities in the mobile technology space.
