Hello! I work as a sales manager for an international hotel chain. Our business has been suffering as a result of the current economic situation, so I am asking for the following feedback from all of you:

What are the things that would make you choose a particular hotel when you are looking for accommodations, whether it is for business travel or leisure travel?

Is it all about rate? Location (if so, what about the location)? Brand recognition or rewards programs? Amenities on property?

And where do you get your information to help you make your decision? Any information will be appreciated. Thanks!
