WATG has evidence that good design can improve our clients' top- and bottom line.
In research conducted over a 15-year period by Smith Travel Research, it was revealed that WATG-designed hotels command more than a $50 premium in RevPAR (revenue per available room) for the hotels' owners and operators. (The study compared hotels managed by the same companies in the same geographic locations).
In addition to enhancing revenue opportunities for property owners, WATG professionals know how to accelerate return on investment by designing projects that maximize operational efficiencies and drive up gross operating profits.
WATG's researchers have uncovered several threats to success in the hospitality industry. Knowing these troubling trends can help you turn obstacles into opportunities.
