RoomSaver.com Travelers Are Loyal to Hotel Rates, Not Brands
July 14, 2005- In a recent survey conducted this month of over a hundred RoomSaver.com Travel Club members, hotel brand preferences were investigated. Results show that the majority of respondents (34.8%) do not prefer a specific brand, instead they choose lodging based on the best possible rate.
Based on these findings, hoteliers would be wise to advertise their best rates to attract those online travelers who sort lodging search results by price first.
Hotel brands included in the survey were InterContinental Hotels, Choice Hotels, Marriott International, Best Western, La Quinta and Hilton. Twenty-five percent of the respondents prefer Choice Hotels, followed by Marriott, Hilton, Best Western, La Quinta, and InterContinental Hotels, in consecutive order.
