Brands of hotels
Due to the popularity and most importantly, the need and demand for hotels increasing around the world, the hospitality industry has seen a tremendous growth, expansion and new brands. This industry having humble beginnings from the decades in late 1800s to mid 1900s now has become vast and global reaching. Many of the modern hotel brands are connected to the concept of operation known as hotel chains. The term hotel chain traits back its origins to the 1920s where a great trend began which shifted individual ownership of hotels to corporate ownership as a result of increasing costs of building and operating hotels. As the corporate world took over the hotel business, they didn't believe in a single hotel at a single location but a chain of hotels at different locations with the same name but not necessarily with the same capacity and product range. Chain operations of 'hotels allows for efficient management through the use of mass purchasing, central reservations and billings, and extensive advertising and promotion campaigns. Today about 30 percent of all American hotels and motels are affiliated with chains or franchised groups.
