PAII News You Can Use 4-14-2015

True to the “News You Can Use” theme of these weekly e-newsletters, it’s quite likely that you can use news of a towel sale and PAII member discounts from our industry partners!
Where can you find this info? On the PAII Forum – Vendor Announcements page. Within the past month we’ve read about a close out sale of the Bamboo Towel line from The Turkish Towel Company; an exclusive-for-PAII Members discount from DutchCrafters’ distinctive outdoor décor’ and a partnership between WebRezPro and PriceMatch resulting in increased efficiencies. Check out more information in the forum at http://www.innkeeping.org/forums/Posts.aspx?topic=1092135

GASP! While all ages of travelers rated a good night’s sleep their top priority, Millennials are the first (and only, for now) group to value high-speed broadband over good food! These 18-34 year olds are traveling, and choosing accommodations with shared spaces for socializing (after checking the online reviews), and demanding access to technology in their room. Find out more in the article below “What is a Millennial Traveler”.

NO SURPRISE! We routinely hear “people don’t read” … fortunately, photos are worth a thousand words. Communicate better thru images with “8 Photo Styling Tips”.

I’ve enjoyed reading the articles in this e-newsletter and hope that you do too.

‘Til next week
