Be sure your lodging property has a complete listing in Aaron’s Hotel & Motel Directory - the most comprehensive room reservation system on the internet
The quickest method to retrieve news articles about a particular hotel company, city, country or person is to use 
Hotel.Online's search engine
Use one or two words in your search. Examples: To search for New York - type in 'york' (new is just too common!) To search for Steve Wynn...type in 'mirage' (Steve is too common and Wynn does not contain a vowel).
