School has geared up again, and so has the business travelling season. It seems as though the cool weather is bringing a cool response from the September travellers, as overall hotel performance reviews were mostly down across the board, continuing the negative trend we saw in August. On a scale of 1-5, 5 being “fantastic” and 1 being “poor,” the average lodger reported a slight 1.38% decline in Resultant Quality Score (3.62 to 3.57), a 1.11% decline in Dining (3.61 to 3.57), a 4.85% slip in Facilities (4.12 to 3.92, the biggest area of decline), a 3.61% fall in Housekeeping (3.32 to 3.20), and a 3.57% decline in Staff reviews (3.64 to 3.51). The only areas of improvement this month were in rooms, which improved 1.07% (3.73 to 3.77), and overall sense of Value, which gained an impressive 5.11% (4.11 to 4.32) in the month of September. Hopefully, October will be a more positive month for hotel goers.
