Top 10 Hotel Trends for 2016

Top 10 Hotel Trends for 2016 | TashaVancouver | Scoop.it
2016 promises to be the most profitable year our industry has ever seen due to strong rate growth, minimal supply
impact, low interest rates and oil prices and a somewhat minimal impact from disruptors like Airbnb, living wage
bills and health care costs. As we do every year, following are the trends that will help you maximize your business
opportunities in the year ahead.
Analytics rule! Everything is trackable now. Not only can we see how much attention a certain ad campaign is
getting, but we can see the geographic location of the users interacting with it, their age, and a general idea on
their income. Use this information to target your marketing efforts to your specific buyer persona and watch your
ROI skyrocket. Also, arm yourself when looking into digital advertising campaigns. Do you know how much one visit
to your website is worth in dollars? If you don't, then how can you tell whether that banner ad you're spending
$200/month on and receiving 500 visits in referring traffic from is worth it? Knowledge is power and you have it all
available at your fingertips.
Consolidation is only just beginning: The Marriott acquisition of Starwood and the Expedia acquisition of Orbitz are
harbingers of a consolidation coming in the hotel industry. While it is too soon to determine what other brands or
companies will decide to come together, it is clear that we are entering the age of consolidation as the economy
enters the mature stage. The impact on guests and hoteliers will only be determined as this wave of consolidations
plays out but for the immediate future, bigger is better.
Digital Marketing is dominated by two words: mobile and video: This is why live video streaming via a mobile
device is so deserving of our attention; it is a true joining of the two best developed areas of digital marketing. The
average user consumes more than 65 minutes of live video a day and this number is growing fast. Periscope alone
averages 2 million daily active users with over 10 million total accounts created as of August 2015 (barely 5 months
after it launched). Millennials look at live streaming video the same way past generations viewed television. The
future of knowledge and culture is in digital, not print.
Invest in Capex immediately: While the money is available and cheap, take advantage now of major expenditures
including renovations that may not only be required by the brand but will also revitalize your hotel now and through
the next downturn. Remember, new supply is coming and a tired hotel loses twice—in 2016 when rates can be
pushed to pay for the capital expense and in the future when demand drops and those who have renovated win!
Moreover, the Sharing Economy could have a material impact on lodging demand by 2017.
Millennial Mindset trends toward group settings: Millennials and those who have the "millennial mindset" are looking
for John Naisbitt's hi-tech, hi-touch experience. They like a personalized, gourmet experience for a reasonable price
and this has produced all new lobby designs in the hotel sector. Lobby bars and hotel restaurants are wide open with
combination work, play and eat/drink spaces designed with this youthful customer in mind, one who is a "party of
one" but "hanging out together." So give them what they want—personalized experiences that create value. This
group is quick to criticize via social media so "wow" customer service is your best protection here.
Optimal Channel Mix: Online travel agencies (OTAs) are having a tremendous impact on distribution. They are
responsible for incremental demand and the OTA's extensive marketing campaigns and sophisticated platforms reach
travelers who might not find your hotel any other way. Owners still view OTAs as an expensive channel but it's a
channel we most definitely need going into the next downturn. Find ways to use OTAs without relying on them as
your primary resource—and get more eyeballs to your own web site!
Personal Engagement in the Digital Age: Understanding the modern consumer is key to creating relationships and
appearing up-to-date, particularly in the digital realm. Guests are using social media outlets, community apps, and
online forums not only to research and book hotels, but to gauge the hotel's brand identity -- increasingly more on
wireless devices. The hotels that frequently engage with consumers on social media and provide mobile-responsive
websites or even apps to streamline the process will maintain repeat guests by showing a genuine understanding and
interest of guests' needs, as well as brand personality and relatability.
Revenue Management 2.0: Adhering to the science of hospitality, revenue management is a constant work in
progress that is now 40 years old. Investing time in fine tuning your revenue management strategy will maximize
profits providing for a larger cushion when the next downturn hits. And don't just go with your gut—invest in new
technology as it is changing rapidly! Take a hard look at who is the most profitable customer and what room types
are in highest demand each and every day. Additionally, make certain your team is accurately forecasting demand!
Sharing Economy and Disruption: No matter how hard some people may fight it, Airbnb, Uber, and the likes are
here. Hotels should innovate and provide quality alternatives with the same appeal to the maximum extent
possible. Mobile/digital check-in, easily accessible and plentiful outlets in all areas, reliable and fast wifi are some
of the amenities desired by those who utilize Airbnb and HomeAway. The hotel industry should not take its cues
from the music and taxi industries that could not embrace change and continue to implode. More disruption is on the
way!
Soft Landing: The party will not go on forever so do not make promises of distributions beyond 2016. Although this
requires careful readings of partnership agreements, it is easy to distribute excess cash given that the good times
are here. However, holding back some of this money is in the best interest of many partnerships because it may
prevent cash calls upon the next downturn or soft landing. From an emotional/psychological standpoint, it is better
to not give too much and not request later on rather than to give more now and request some of it back later.
What is the bottom line? The industry has become largely a science, not an art. Consolidation driven by a need to
scale and technology driven by mobile growth have changed the industry as we knew it. Take advantage of the best
profit year ever in our industry but prepare for a soft landing in the future that will be caused by many of the
aforementioned concerns.

Recreational vehicle is a motorized or towable vehicle that combines transportation and temporary living quarters for travel, recreation and camping activities. Recreational vehicles do not include mobile homes, off-road vehicles, snowmobiles or conversion vehicles. Recreational vehicles include automobiles or towable trailers specifically designed or tailored for leisure activities such as vacations and camping, both on and off highways. Recreational vehicles include features such as sleeping, kitchen, and bathroom facilities for use during travel and camping. Recreational vehicles are subject to the same registration and licensing as other automobiles, and may have to abide by specific laws. The recreational vehicles market in North America has tremendous potential to grow in the near future owing to the materialization of certain trends, such as increase in ownership affordability. Consumers are increasingly purchasing more recreational vehicles as they save over 59 percent on their vacation costs over other forms of travel. However, increased dealer interest in recreational vehicles auctions hinders the growth of the recreational vehicles market in North America. In North America, many dealers have been participating in auctions either to acquire pre-owned RVs or to dispose of used RVs, thus challenging the growth of the market in the region.
