Forget the formerly popular question of what inning the hotel industry expansion is in—today it’s a whole new ballgame. From what guests will expect when they start revisiting hotels to what they want in return for their business, owners, operators and sales-and-marketing staff need to know how the guest experience has changed in the wake of COVID-19.
