The COVID-19 pandemic represents a watershed moment for hotels around the world. Weathering the short-term consequences of a global travel shutdown required a deft hand in management, while navigating any organization toward success in the recovery period demands even more intellect and creativity. There are now so many new challenges facing the hospitality industry and the situation is changing almost every day. With technology playing a pivotal role in the hotel of the future, all managers must also have a firm grasp of how each platform and device works in order to determine what is best for their organizations while still operating on a lean budget. As presented in this sixth book in the series, More Hotel Mogel gives hoteliers the latest tools to prosper in this rapidly evolving period. While analyzing the current trends and looking at how the coronavirus has affected every operation, the authors also examine what underscores modern guest behavior and how best to appeal to customers so that you can maximize revenue at any property. This is not an introductory textbook on the hotel industry, but rather a compilation of selected topics that highlight current success stories, blunders to avoid and unique ideas to help hotels in the post-pandemic world. The goal throughout is to make aspiring hoteliers and seasoned professionals think about how to boldly grow their businesses in this brave new hospitality world.
In this sense, you must create an experience so that your hotel is no longer interchangeable with any other in your comp set. There is always that elusive 'x factor' to distinguish a brand and add another emotional driver so that a ...

Over the past few centuries, as Western civilization has enjoyed an expansive and flexible geographic domain, Westerners have observed other cultures with little interest in a return gaze. In turn, these other civilizations have been similarly disinclined when they have held sway. Clearly, though, an external frame of reference outstrips introspection—we cannot see ourselves as others see us. Unprecedented in its scope, What the Rest Think of the West provides a rich historical look through the eyes of outsiders as they survey and scrutinize the politics, science, technology, religion, family practices, and gender roles of civilizations not their own. The book emphasizes the broader figurative meaning of looking west in the scope of history. Focusing on four civilizations—Islamic, Japanese, Chinese, and South Asian—Nader has collected observations made over centuries by scholars, diplomats, missionaries, travelers, merchants, and students reflecting upon their own “Wests.” These writings derive from a range of purposes and perspectives, such as the seventh-century Chinese Buddhist who goes west to India, the missionary from Baghdad who travels up the Volga in the tenth century and meets the Vikings, and the Egyptian imam who in 1826 is sent to Paris to study the French. The accounts variously express critique, adoration, admiration, and fear, and are sometimes humorous, occasionally disturbing, at times controversial, and always enlightening. With informative introductions to each of the selections, Laura Nader initiates conversations about the power of representational practices.

Andre de Toth's remarkable, eccentric and utterly compelling memoir opens amidst the enchanted cafe society of pre-war Budapest. With a novelist's sense of time and place he propels the reader through a series of snap-shots from his fantastically eventful life, from Vienna, Paris and London to Hollywood - where he encountered many of the legendary figures of cinema's golden age. Ever the maverick, de Toth avoids the anodyne cliches of the show biz biography. Brutally honest and frequently self-deprecating, Fragments is a memoir with bite. Also included is an illuminating preface by Bertrand Tavernier.
No more showers of bedbugs were coming down in the mornings from the mattresses as they were hung out for airing in the higher windows of the two 'hotels'. No more stray dogs, donkey-shit and potholes on the main drag.
