TORONTO — A recent study commissioned by the Holiday Inn brand found 44 per cent of Canadians ranked guestroom facilities as having the biggest impact on their hotel experience and happiness when travelling.
Having the right room options and amenities, along with warm, friendly service, are especially important for families travelling together, according to the survey.
“The Holiday Inn study found that Canadian women were four times as likely as men to be happiest while planning their trip and less likely to be happiest on the trip itself as compared to men,” says Angie Campanelli, a family travel expert. “ A lot of women I know end up feeling exhausted or disappointed when they come back from vacation, but this can be avoided by making smart choices.”
Campanelli notes that choosing the right hotel, booking the right room, travelling during the week and considering you children’s perspective can help ensure successful family trips.
The research practice of Hill+Knowlton Strategies Canada, Perspectives+, was commissioned by the Holiday Inn brand to conduct an online study of Canadians 18 years of age and older. In total, 987 Canadians were surveyed between June 12 and 15, 2017.
