Hotel benchmarking provides hoteliers with the necessary data to measure and analyze their hotel’s performance against industry competitive sets. That data also helps hoteliers determine where and when property improvements are needed as well as precisely understand market share gains and losses. Data provided through benchmarking allows hoteliers to quickly identify market trends that assist in sales and marketing decisions.
