Millennials, technology and green initiatives are playing a significant role in the way hotels are evolving, according to the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA).
The AHLA just conducted their Lodging Survey with partner STR which assisted in gathering analytics and data in the hospitality sector. The survey assessed hotels and industry trends to see how hotels are advancing guests’ experiences.
The results of the survey showed that millennials are having a large impact on how hotels are conducting business. Millennials are very community-focused, and hotels recognize this and are starting to create functional shared spaces. Over 10 percent of luxury, upscale and midscale properties have implemented communal rooms with shared living spaces.
