The hotel industry is undergoing some interesting times lately. I think the most important thing to remember is the fact that our economy is very volatile as of late. I mean let's think for a second: We've been under sequester for 4 months now, and mass furloughing has become common practice in several government agencies. This means that any industry selling luxuries or extras is going to take a hit. This includes hotels. In a country that's trying to save money, hotels are going to have a very rough time. Expansion and added incentives aren't going to be enough for Marriott.
