What Is the Hospitality Industry
The hotel industry is technically called as the hospitality industry. If you are visiting any foreign city then hotels provide you hospitality, this is why those are categorized under the hospitality industry. Now, let us discuss a bit about the hospitality industry of the globe.
The hospitality industry is now on a boom. This is because people are travelling more frequently now, than they were ever. People are going on vacation at least once in a year and at the same time they are travelling round the year in business matter. When a person arrives at any foreign city, the first thing he requires is a hotel. Hotel provides him the shelter and food and staying at a hotel he navigates through the city to attain his objective. As the people are travelling more than ever, so hotels are mushrooming round the world. In fact, you will not find a single city anywhere in the world, where you could not find a hotel. You can find a hotel in the smallest to smallest city of the world. There is no definite answer to the question, “How many hotels are there in the world?” But the number would certainly cross the million figure mark.
The hotels of the world have been divided into different categories according to the quality of hospitalization provided by them. There is an internet apex body, which categorizes the hotels according to the hospitalization provided; so, that a person can easily find a hotel of his liking. In fact, that apex body provides stars. The more the number of stars a hotel has, the better is the hospitalization provided by that hotel. Few years ago, the maximum numbers of stars a hotel can obtain were 5; but some new hotels provide better hospitality than the existing hotels and some of the existing hotels reinvented themselves to offer better service. This is why, 6 and 7 star hotels come to existence. Now, a hotel can get maximum 7 numbers of stars.
If you are a person, who loves sheer luxury and can’t stay without luxurious amenities, then you should go for the 7 star hotels. You can expect a private swimming pool and Jacuzzi inside the room of a 7 star hotel. However, you have to pay a handsome amount of money to rent the luxury. If you want luxury but at a bit affordable price, then you should go for hotels having less stars. You can find luxurious amenities in a 3 star hotel also.
All hotels below the 3 star categories are the budget hotels. In these hotels, you would not find any luxurious items. However, you don’t have to hurt your wallet, if you are going for these kinds of hotels. Now, the choice is up to you. The more you pay, the better you would get.
