New Orleans, Louisiana is home to the world’s largest population of foreign tourists, with more than 5 million people visiting from the United States each year.
But its tourism industry, which has been thriving thanks to its reputation for cleanliness and affordable accommodation, has struggled in recent years as the city has seen an uptick in cases of EV-infected travelers.
As a result, the city’s hotel industry is in the midst of a transformation, with hotel chains aiming to appeal to the international traveler, and attracting international brands to the city.
New Orleans is one of the world top five cities with the highest percentage of EV cases in the US, according to a recent report by travel firm Expedia.
With over 1 million hotel rooms booked for the year, it’s no surprise that hotel chains are starting to push their offerings overseas.
In addition to offering hotels with cleanliness credentials, they are also targeting the international market.
One of the best ways to attract visitors is through free international tours.
The hotel industry has been trying to find ways to offer international visitors affordable accommodation.
Some hotels have even created a program to attract foreign brands to their properties.
The idea is to attract new international visitors to a hotel and encourage them to spend time in the city to experience its amenities and culture.
This could potentially attract new visitors to the area, according with Expedia CEO Andrew Nelles.
“With that, we think we can help increase the brand’s presence in New York, Los Angeles, and London,” he said.
However, some hotels have found that offering international travel through a paid trip is not always possible.
“The international travel industry is changing, and that means a lot of brands want to bring brands to a city that they’re familiar with,” said James Steckel, head of marketing at hotel group American Lodging Group.
“If they don’t have a connection with that city, they won’t want to put a lot money into it.”
The hotels that are looking to make an impact on the city are starting with the American brand, according Nells.
While he said that hotels can do it through other channels, including a loyalty program, he said it’s important for hotels to make sure that their brands are familiar with New Orleans before they start looking overseas.
“A lot of our brands are very focused on the cities in the Midwest, so they know the area very well,” Nell said.
“We want to make that relationship with the brand that way.”
American Lodges brand of hospitality has also been helping to make the brand feel comfortable in New Zealand, where they are working to make New Zealand more attractive to foreign visitors.
“They’re doing their best to promote their brand, and we’re doing our best to help make sure we can build that relationship, which is the core of our brand,” said Stecke.
“I think it’s really important for them to know that there are people in New Guinea and in New England and in the Caribbean and in Africa that are really looking for a quality hotel experience.
We want to build that loyalty so they feel comfortable when they come back.”
