DescriptionSuccess in the hotel and tourism industry depends on understanding the key factors of customer satisfaction. Customer satisfaction leads to purchase repetition, intention to revisit, and potential increased future patronage of the hotel. The purpose of this research is to better understand (1) the factors that influence overnight accommodation decisions; (2) how these factors relate to satisfaction ratings for a variety of accommodation and destination elements; and (3) how these factors and satisfaction ratings relate to return visitation and/or making positive recommendations to others. Results indicate that some hotel services and facilities had significant influence on hotel satisfaction ratings.
