Final Boarding Call

Click on the links of the names of the lodging companies near the beginning of this article to find out the answers. How do you think you did on the quiz?

Some of the hotel brands listed above are rather obvious as to which lodging company they belong; but others are certainly not so obvious.

I did not include such lodging companies as Meliá Hotels and Resorts, which has a limited footprint; or casino companies whose brands are as few as one hotel property.

Apparently, the following brands are either no longer associated with the nine multinational lodging brands; have been repurposed; or they have simply ceased to exist altogether since the most recent version of this article in December of 2019:

  1. Exhale Spa and Fitness
  2. The House of Originals is now known as Morgans Originals
  3. Joie de Vivre is now known as JdV
  4. Vacation Rentals by Choice
  5. Wyndham Vacation Rentals

I am still considering writing an article to follow up this article pertaining to whether or not too many hotel brands exist — as well as whether or not enough differentiation exists between some of those brands — but I would first like to know your thoughts about hotel brands if you could please post them in the Comments section below; and you may be quoted in that aforementioned future article…
