HOTEL MANAGEMENT Battle of the Brands round 2 is live!


Round 1 of HOTEL MANAGEMENT’S Battle of the Brands is in the books! This round saw some lopsided smackdowns (we heard you loud and clear, Four Seasons and Days Inn fans!) and some tight contests (Hilton Garden Inn vs. Courtyard by Marriott and Kimpton vs. Omni).

Now it’s time for Round 2. Will Cobblestone Hotels pull off another upset and beat Fairfield Inn & Suites in the battle for top midscale brand? Who will prevail in the battle of two giants as Sheraton and Marriott shoot it out for top upscale brand? And in the economy bracket, two Wyndham Hotel Group brands—Days Inn and Microtel—are going head to head.

Now’s not the time to play small ball, people. Go big or go home.
