Skift Take

The tourism industry is starting to bounce back after Covid; for the big hotel brands, growth is on the agenda.

Updated February 28, 2023

The hospitality industry is back, with revenues and occupancy rates finally returning to pre-pandemic levels. The big chains are happy again; the millions of global hotel rooms are now back in use. But where’s the revenue going? 

Marriott owns Sheraton, Fairfield, and The Ritz-Carlton; Hilton owns Curio, DoubleTree and Hampton; Intercontinental owns Iberostar, Holiday Inn and Hotel Indigo; the ink is hardly dry on Choice Hotels’ $675 million takeover of Radisson Hotel Americas – and that’s just for starters.
