One trend in hospitality has not changed for over 2000 years – people want a good bed, a decent shower and somewhere safe to sleep the night. The growth in the low-budget sector has been testament to this.
Hotel brands still need to deliver value for money, but if the above components are at the core of any offering, the likelihood is that the perceived value of the product is high.
Many believe there will be continued growth in the budget sector with new innovations allowing the best use of space.

- Joe Stenson, of Queensway Group on the transparency needed with hotel products.
