Why Hotels Still Work in 2016

It’s 2016 and you may have heard of the “sharing economy.” Smart phones and internet access have made it easier than ever to “share” things—from rides on Uber to renting a house for a weekend. One such “sharing” service that has garnered recent attention is a service called Airbnb. If you haven’t heard of it, this service allows people to rent out their houses, cottages, or even rooms to those looking for a place to stay.

While the Airbnb model is certainly interesting and no doubt has its place in some cases, it’s a relatively young model and certainly has some drawbacks. In the next few paragraphs, we’ll take a quick look at what the time-tested hotel model still offers that sharing services simply cant.

No Surprises

Hotels depend on their reputation for their livelihood. As such, hotels—especially those that are part of a chain—take giving a guest an excellent experience very seriously. While all hotels must comply with local, state, and federal laws, a hotel like Baymont Inn & Suites holds itself to a much higher standard as part of its membership within its corporation. Hotel guests are the beneficiaries. They can always expect a clean room and excellent and courteous guest service.

Painless Reservations

Hotels like Baymont Inn & Suites in Mequon take thousands and thousands of reservations each year. Their reservation process is quick, easy, and reliable. Whether you are booking a room well in advance or need something last minute, the system is setup to be flexible and accommodating. There is no need for several e-mails or phone calls back and forth to hammer out all the details. Just book it and forget about it.

Research and Review

While booking a room from someone you don’t know and only met through a phone app can be an adventure, it’s certainly not easy to know what to expect from your stay. Well-established hotels have reviews from hundreds of guests and you can quickly and easily find out everything you need to know about your stay with a visit to a website or by making a quick phone call.
Loyalty Programs

A good hotel values your business and will do everything they can to make you want to come back. In many cases, they will reward your loyalty with points and stays and other rewards. The excellent Wyndham Rewards program that Baymont Inn & Suites participates in is a great example. Participating in this program will save you money, and that’s always a good thing!

At Baymont Inn & Suites in Mequon, we know you have choices and are grateful for your business. By providing great rooms at great prices, we hope we can earn your loyalty.
