The type of guests your property will attract has a lot to do with the location of the property. If you are located in a small market with few business assets nearby, it is less likely that you will see very many international travelers. If you are located near a large city or a large corporate headquarters, however, you may see an influx of international guests. It all depends on the reason for the guests’ visit and your property’s proximity to their destination. If you are near the destination of the traveler, then there are a few things you should do to help your property vie for the business of international guests.
When international travelers are searching for a hotel, they are able to scan and compare multiple properties competing for their business. It is important that you take note of review sites and respond to both positive and negative reviews of your property.

Be sure you communicate and resolve any issues with reviews to show your dedication to creating the best possible guest experience. (Read: Impact of Travel Reviews on Independent Hotel Bookings)
