The Hottest New Hotels of the Year

The Conde Nast Traveler magazine released the Hot List Hotels 2011. Every year, the magazine sent editors to check out new hotels anonymously and see “how special a property is” and “how special a hotel makes you feel.” This Fox News video features five hotels of the list. They are:
  • Mancora Marina Hotel in Mancora, Peru
  • The Waikiki Edition in Honolulu, HI
  • The Redbury in Los Angeles, CA
  • The Savoy, a Fairmont Hotel in London, England
  • Hotel Beaux Arts in Miami, FL
Some of these hotels are very small but all have “special” features. Not all of them are in the luxury market either, but many have unique “themes” and provide personalized service. Once again, I see the boutique hotel trend from the hot list. Have you been to any of the hot hotels in the list? How does it make you feel special as a guest? What hotel trend did you see from the video?

United Airlines pushes economy-class travelers away with a new frequent flyer program

United Airlines just revealed massive changes to its MileagePlus Program. How much a traveler spends on the tickets is the only thing that matters in the airline’s new frequent flyer program.

Not long ago, United quietly switched from a distance-based reward program to a fare-based frequent flyer program. Since 2015, people earn mileages based on how much they spend on the air tickets instead of how far they fly. 

For example, I typically earn about 4,000 reward miles for a round-trip ticket between Los Angeles and Asia, even though the distance of the trip usually ranges from 10,000 to 12,000 miles. Nevertheless, the distance I fly still matters because it will be counted towards the “qualified miles” for elite status. 

Now, the airline wants to take a big step further to (only) reward those top-spending travelers as their elite customers.

The terms used in the current MileagePlus Program

There are four elite statuses in the United Airlines MileagePlus Program, including Premier Silver, …

Promoting student success in the STR Student Market Study Competition

I was in New York City (NYC) over the Veterans Day weekend for the HX: The Hotel Experience 2019, one of the most important trade shows in the lodging industry. Similar to last year’s trade show, the HX 2019 also entailed four components, including HX: The Marketplace, HX: The Conference, Boutique Design New York, and the STR (Smith Travel Research) Student Market Study Competition.  

STR is the leading data analytics provider for the lodging industry. Since its debut in 2015, the STR Student Market Study Competition (the STR Competition hereafter) has received significant attention from the hospitality programs around the world.

This year, over 20 students from the Collins College of Hospitality Management at Cal Poly Pomona traveled to NYC for HX 2019. Moreover, six of them also participated in the STR Competition for the first time.

In the end, the Cal Poly Pomona team won the 2nd Prize among the 25 competing colleges and universities. The other winning teams include Michigan State …
