Benchmarking your world: Using data insights to fuel performance growth
You have all the pieces in place to run a successful hotel: rates are being set, rooms are being sold, and towels are being folded in the proper fashion. But how do you really know how well your hotel is perforing without knowing how your competitors are performing? Benchmarking is the process of comparing your property’s key performance indicators against a range of competitors in your local market. It is a vital practice for any revenue management strategy, helping hotels strategise and compete. Join STR’s George Titlow for an overview on hotel benchmarking, which will offer great insights on how to read your performance data as well as the latest industry updates for the UK and Europe.
