hance the guest experience. An introduction of basic analyses, techniques and trends both in policy and technology are reviewed as they relate to management and the guest.

New technologies such as the Property Management System have dramatically changed hotel operations; therefore, extensive time has been devoted to covering this technology. Additional chapters feature analysis of the physical makeup of hotels, yield management, and operational techniques.
