Research Paper


Given the variety of options of methods available today, the pilot study is examining just computer, smartphone app, or telephone. Respondents also have the option of making a reservation directly with the brand hotel that they wish to stay with or making the reservation through other means. Originally hypnotized that respondents would make their reservations through an online travel agency using their smartphone app; over all respondents prefer to book directly with the hotel using a web browser. This study does indicate that there is potential for future study to take the survey a step further to ask more of the why do you book directly with the brand and not with an online travel agency. Any future studies should be more than a convenience sampling and try to address more of a wide range of income and ages.
