Hotel Revenue Management

If you've ever booked a hotel room, you'll appreciate that it's more than a spare sleeping room. Hotels fall under the hospitality business, which is cutthroat. Hotels must thus extend a welcome to travelers and provide a comfortable ‘home away from home’ feeling that includes services such as food and drinks, recreation, laundry and more. By delivering such services to patronizing customers, you can generate hotel revenue. However, you must manage this revenue efficiently for the hotel business to continue running smoothly and successfully. This income is controlled by applying analytics that predicts consumers’ behaviour at a small-scale market level and optimizes product and service availability while maximizing price elasticity, revenue growth and profit. This course will guide you through the strategies required to manage hotel revenue and show you its purpose and importance. Explore the concept of profit from an accountant’s and economist’s perspective and the ideology behind a successful business transaction.
