Brand Wars:
Airbnb vs. Hotels


Nine years ago, the only Airbnb property was a few air matresses on the founders' floor. Today, the company is valued at $25 billion and operates in 34,000 cities. It's revolutionizing not only the tourism industry, but the housing industry as a whole. 

We wanted to dig into these changes. Who books an Airbnb when travelling as opposed to a hotel room? When do travelers prefer one over the other? How is the hotel industry innovating to keep up?

You'll learn: 
  • Why travelers choose an Airbnb over a hotel, and vice versa
  • What guests expect out of each experience 
  • Opportunities for boutique hotels
  • A new way to leverage consumer feedback for competitive analysis
