HOTEL BUSINESS REVIEW

May FOCUS: Eco-Friendly Practices

May 2022

A recent study found that 72% of global travelers are inclined to make sustainable travel choices, and are more likely to book an accommodation if they know it is eco-friendly. Obviously, hotels must take action to address these issues-not only because it's a moral imperative but because it makes good business sense. One leading hotel chain recently committed to only buying furniture from reclaimed wood. Another replaced their mini-fridges and coffee machines in each room and instead, provide them in a communal area to reduce electricity usage. One hotel chain collects their food waste and converts it into biofuel, and another became the first to make use of environmental blockchain technology to offset its carbon footprint. Guests can spend their credits on initiatives that "develop, protect and conserve natural ecosystems." The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to integrate sustainable, eco-friendly practices into their operations.

Mobile Technology: Next Level Innovation


Despite the recent adversity that has challenged the entire lodging industry in every facet of its operation, the relentless march of digital innovation continues unabated. Part of this is driven by the need to outperform the competition so hoteliers can promote their operations to digitally-savvy Millennial travelers, and part of it is driven by the desire to continuously find new ways to enhance the guest experience. In that regard, hotel apps that provide mobile check-in/out, room access, room service, and the capacity to control in-room lights, curtains, temperature, and television programming from a guest's personal device is fast becoming standard. Soon, new features such as voice control, facial recognition, smart rooms, and the use of A.I. for things like virtual hotel tours may be on the horizon. The January Hotel Business Review will report on how some hotels are integrating new mobile technologies into their operations to offer their guests an impressive, next level experience.
