should be created as hotels begin charging higher rates and bringing in more money.
A recent report from Hogg Robinson Group
found that hotels throughout the world increased rates by 4 percent during the first half of 2011. Of the 50 cities included in the survey, 33 saw a yearly increase in hotel rates.

have put in place travel restrictions and cost reductions, hotel rates in the majority of cities surveyed increased. Demand is driving the rate.
