Jane Ianniello, International Director of Tourism, Travel & Leisure, Roy Morgan Research, says, "Customer satisfaction for most premium hotels has increased over the past 12 months; by contrast, satisfaction for most mid-range and basic hotels and motels has remained steady and sometimes declined.
"Competition is fierce amongst premium hotel brands and it is important for chains to understand the profile of premium hotel patrons – who they are, where they live, what motivates them, and, what media channels to use to communicate with them. Roy Morgan's Hotel Customer Profiles provide a broad understanding of the target audience, in terms of demographics, attitudes, activities and media usage in Australia."
