Quarterly Newsletter
In the News

Wow, it has been a very interesting 1st quarter. Starwood's impending acquisition by Marriott points to the desire on Marriott's part to scale and wrestle back control of customer experience from 3rd party intermediaries. Hilton's "stop clicking around" campaign combined with Marriott's "Members Get More by Booking Direct" campaign underscores an intense desire to drive direct bookings. Meanwhile, Google and TripAdvisor are ramping up their travel booking capabilities on the bottom end of the travel-planning funnel while simultaneously focusing on their core value proposition at the top end. Also look for new initiatives on the part of OTA's to drive loyalty in the months ahead. Which of these initiatives will gain momentum in the future and which will fizzle (or perhaps more accurately – morph) remains to be seen; however, they do bring to light the need for hospitality operators of all shapes and sizes to remain alert to opportunities and to avoid costly mistakes. This issue is dedicated to the topic of revenue management and we are honored to serve our revenue management clients by helping them navigate through this ever-changing landscape.
