Dear Friends,

I have developed a study which aims to identify the effectiveness of Frequent Guest Programmes with regards to a number of issues within the hotel industry. Knowing the popularity of Frequent Flyer Programmes, it will be interesting to investigate whether FGPs have the same appeal.

Do you believe that hotel loyalty can be achieved through Frequent Guest Programmes?

I would appreciate if you could take part in this short survey. Your cooperation will be very valuable for the outcome of my Honours Project. Identification is not required and it should take no longer than 10 to 12 minutes to complete.

You are also very welcome to provide your views on the topic. To begin the survey please click on the link below.

In reference to title question:

I don't think so. I fly a good amount and the only time I've stayed in a hotel was in MCO for one night lol

Sure, especially if the hotels are paid for by work. However, they don't work to well for me, since hotel stays can be had for huge discounts when using Priceline and Hotwire.

Most of the time different airlines have similar fares (often matched or within 10%), such that picking one over another is not financially difficult. Priceline & Hotwire are difficult to use for airfare, as the schedule is not fixed, but for hotels they are pretty good with geographic restrictions and [obviously] have a fixed schedule.

This price-conscious consumer is a FF member that's loyal to one airline (CO), but is not a loyal hotel FGP member (Mrs. Analog has a Starwood Amex, but rarely, if ever stays at *wood hotels; the *points convert well to airline FF points). This is because it does not cost too much to only (almost) fly CO, while not using Priceline or Hotwire is way too expensive. Right now I'm staying in a DoubleTree (Hilton) for $75/night including taxes & fees. The same place booked via the hotel is over double that price.

I am a Delta Gold Elite as well as a Hilton HHonors Diamond. Being a HHonors Diamond does influence were I stay. My usual trips take me to the Hilton Head Island area. I choose one of two hotels, the Hilton Head Hilton Garden Inn or the Hampton Inn Sun City because I want to keep my loyalty and perks with Hilton. Anytime I travel for leisure, the first hotel I look at is any Hilton brand.

I put my input in your survey. Hope it helps.

Weaseling out of things is important to learn. It's what separates us from the animals ... except the weasel.

Forgot to mention:
Being member of a hotel chain' s FGP often speeds up the booking process considerably, as it relieves from re-typing personal and credit card information.
This is a major plus for me.
