Quick question: Would you say that airport executive lounges are a purely functional paradigm, aimed at maximising the performance and efficiency of the travelling business person? Or are they a license for luxury, a status-symbol and a reward scheme wrapped up in one?
We’re almost halfway through 2017.
Take a moment for that to sink in.
Remember how business trips used to be, back in the glory days of the Mad Men era? When “going on a jolly” meant charging all kinds of excesses to the company card, flashing any amount of cash to win a client, and frugality was a dirty word?
Roomex, the leading corporate hotel booking service, has announced a partnership with QHotels which will bring live availability and competitive rates to the platform from May 1 2017.
Boutique hotels and franchise are remarkably different business models despite effectively offering and identical service. The boutique hotel is predicated on freedom and flexibility, the opportunity for adventure and the chance to experience a different (often, more personalised) mode of hospitality to what you may typically expect. Franchise hotels offer something almost diametrically opposed to this philosophy. They are presented as a known-quantity, with a high standard of luxury and service which can be replicated the world over. With this, the customer can feel a sense of familiarity and as if the hotel is a home-from-home, thousands of miles away.
