How Much Do Hotel Reviews Matter?

There are a lot of things that go into running a successful hotel because When you think about it, hotels offer a lot of different experiences to their guests. Everything from restaurants, to pools, to pull-out sofas and gift shops. And why do the great hotels not only excel at all of these things but go above and beyond for their guests? Well for good reviews of course! And sure, a lot of money. But if there is one thing that helps hotels make a lot of money it’s positive word of mouth. It’s something that has been valuable to the hospitality industry—and really all customer focused enterprises, since the dawn of commerce. But thanks to the digital age reviews have taken on a greater level of importance. Take a look at this article on Hotelnewsnow.com which features a study focused on all of the different factors that play into a guest’s decision to stay at which hotel. Here are the takeaways from the study in handy infographic form:


As you can see reviews play a big part in a traveler’s choice of hotel, whether it be for business or leisure. Have you looked up your hotel on Yelp lately and decided that your reviews could use a little oomph? Because if so this is something that we can help with. We’ve been spending years helping hotels renovate and improve their décor by liquidating their properties. Bottom line: liquidation is a vital step in improving a hotel and no one does liquidation better than we do. Try us out.

Hotel Liquidation Made Easy

Running a hotel isn’t easy. We feel as if we’re authorities on this because we have to work with any number of high scale and successful hotels day in and out. The liquidation business can be complicated, and while we’re experienced and we do everything in our power to make the process go smoothly, that (and selling cheap furniture) is all we do. But if you’re the one actually running the hotel the process is even more complicated. First, you have to decide whether or not you even should liquidate. And how do you come to this conclusion? By closely watching your bottom line? The changing styles? Or just taking customer comments and reviews into account? Likely it will be a mix of all three (or more) and that’s before anything is even liquidated. Before any new furniture is purchased and moved in. And then consider that this is only one small part of running a hotel. So yeah, not easy.

While we can’t help you plan your restaurant’s 7 course meal or help find a guest’s lost phone (unless it’s stuck in a sofa) we can definitely liquidate your property in a quick and efficient manner. Want proof? Take a look at us in action.
