Hotel Pricing & Reputation in 2024: When Will the Bubble Burst?

In the past two years, strong demand has given hotels a virtual blank check for room rates. So far, hotels have avoided a major backlash in reviews, but all that could change quickly.

If demand softens and travellers have more choice in accommodation, pricing will come under greater scrutiny – and so will quality and service. If pricing is perceived as overly aggressive, lost business and bad reviews will result, driving down demand and pricing power – a vicious circle.

Join us for the next Shiji Buzz, when our panel of experts discusses how hotels will know when pricing sentiment is changing and how to find the ideal balance between pricing and reputation to optimise performance in 2024.

  • What does the latest review data tell us about guest sentiment toward higher room rates?
  • How will hoteliers know if sentiment toward pricing has changed?
  • How can hoteliers analyse the relationship between pricing and reputation?
