Mobile Devices

“When you consider who is using mobile, you have to separate tablet use from phone use,” said Nigel Pocklington, CMO of “Phone use is for people looking for a booking close in, while tablets on the other hand are used by customers with longer windows.”

Sarah Bernard, VP of global product development for Hotwire, put it this way: “We see customers are using mobile during commute hours, desktop computers at the lunch hour and during work hours, and tablet bookings go up after 9 pm.”

Going hand-in-hand with that statistic, Bernard said 75 percent of same-day bookings on Hotwire come from mobile, while the highest average daily rate is achieved through tablet bookings.

U.S. Expedia data show 81 percent of people booking one-night stays via mobile are located within 10 miles of the hotel.

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay and for taking such good care of the team, coaches, and support staff this past weekend. The trip went very smooth and the team had their first victory over Millikin in 40+ years! We really appreciate your hard work and wanted to extend our sincere appreciation to you and your staff that made everything possible. Thank you again for your hospitality.

I just want to say THANK YOU for everything. I thought the meetings went really well, the guests seemed to enjoy their rooms and stay, the food was fabulous, and we were well taken care of if we needed something. We didn’t have to want or wait on anything!! I have to admit I was very impressed!
