I wonder if Smith Travel Research has any numbers about how greener hotels are performing against their competitive set?
I wonder why the majority of hotel owners seem to think about the cost of green and not the public relations, human resource and enhanced property value benefits of green?
I wonder if the hospitality industry will seek green as a more cost effective way of doing business in this soft economy?
I wonder if consumers understand that some hotel companies place sustainability or green under Corporate Responsibility, Social Responsibility, About Us, or Programs on their Web sites?
I wonder what the annual turnover rate is in greener hotels vs. other hotels?
