The biggest news from last week’s hospitality conferences was that there wasn’t much news. But where there was, it all had to do with a single theme: branding. Here’s why.
While others are launching or acquiring new brands to increase their global footprints, Four Seasons has stuck with a singular brand that boasts diverse luxury properties. How long it will continue to play the contrarian in this world of mergers and soft brands is another story.
While many say the minibar is down it definitely isn't out and companies are reimagining cleaner designs that bring together all the things hotels love, like local and tech.
A private jet vacation is a convenient way for the luxury traveler who has seen it all to experience an array of diverse destinations during a single trip.
To meet consumer demands and make it easier for visitors to access the mobile app, Four Seasons unveiled a new standard of Wi-Fi: complimentary access available for an unlimited number of devices.
A hotel with the right scent signals to guests that the property is focused on every little thing.
The travel and hospitality industry is indeed putting Big Data to use. One of the chief problems, though, is figuring out what to do with the massive amounts of data that guests provide every day.
There's obviously a market for super-upscale condos tied to services at luxury hotels such as Four Seasons and Ritz-Carlton. Developers in Los Angeles are following through on this mission.
While hotel brands have gone asset light, smart investors still love marquee real estate.
This app is by no means a game-changer. But you have to admire Four Seasons' effort to create a hotel app giving guests access to every service available in the hotel. And there are plenty of humans around to follow through.
