It wasn't long, however, before the benefits to traveling families became equally apparent. Private sleeping areas for parents or for children's naptime and kitchen facilities to save money on meals as well as to accommodate children's eating patterns are among the benefits of all-suite travel for families with children. The market for Baltimore Royale Suites can be reasonably segmented into two categories: business travelers and leisure travelers. * Business Travelers - need hotel rooms year round, but usually emphasize weekdays (M-T).

Conclusion

It's going to be tough to get the hotel started due to the falling economy. The hotel needs to get a good staff. Staff is very important because they leave a lasting impression on the customers. Royale Suites needs to really concentrate on customer satisfaction. If they can get customer satisfaction then they have got through half the battle. Royale Suites should also concentrate on online sales. Everyone uses the Internet and that's where he or she will find most of there traveling accommodations. Royale Suites should also go to different businesses and explain to them all the amenities that they offer. They should also reevaluate their amenities because it seems by the survey that they are low in that factor. I believe the Baltimore Royale Suites will do just fine. Business people are traveling all the time and they definitely like idea of all suite hotels. It's roomier, very convenient for business meeting and they have privacy which in ordinary hotels they lack that greatly. ?? ?? ?? ??
