Hotels have been scrambling to ensure their online supplies are up to date.
The internet is still a big part of the hospitality industry and online purchases are growing in popularity, with the average customer spending on hotel supplies an average of $10 per month.
In 2016, hotel supplies for the Australian capital were estimated to have reached $13 billion, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
But in 2017, the total online spend on hotel products was $18.9 billion, and that figure is projected to grow further in 2018, according a report by hotel consultant The International Hotel Association.
Hotel supplies online The online shopping experience is becoming even more popular.
Last year, the hotel industry reported that online sales of hotel supplies rose 25 per cent year on year.
Online sales for online hotel supplies are expected to increase by 27 per cent to $3.8 billion by 2021, according the report.
However, that increase will be dwarfed by the rise in hotel purchases made online, according Australia’s largest hotel chains.
The major chains that dominate online hotel supply include Holiday Inn, Shangri-La, Marriott, and Holiday Inn Express.
Holiday Inn is the most popular online hotel brand in Australia, with more than 25 million customers, according The International Hotels Association.
The Shangri La Hotel brand is also the largest hotel chain in the US, with 2.7 million customers.
A report by the US-based hotel industry association found that hotels were spending more than $20 billion online in 2016.
This represents a 22 per cent increase on the year.
The average online spend per hotel customer is $20.60.
This is an increase of more than 10 per cent on the previous year.
But the majority of hotel customers spend the majority or all of their hotel purchases online.
According to the American Hotel and Lodging Association, online hotel purchases accounted for less than 3 per cent of hotel revenue in 2017.
The report states that the increase in hotel spend is “unexpected given that the number of guests attending hotel events in hotels in 2016 was only half of the total hotel spend in 2016”.
However, there are some signs that the trend is changing.
In 2018, hotel brands were awarded a $1.1 billion settlement from a class action lawsuit filed by two online hotel customers who claimed that the online hotel purchasing process was “unfair and deceptive” and “sought to manipulate customers into buying hotel products”.
The complaint alleges that hotels are being told that customers are buying hotel items in the hope that they will be charged for those items, but that the price will be cheaper elsewhere.
The case was heard at the Australian Federal Court in Sydney.
The hotel industry has been quick to defend its online purchases.
It said the hotel companies have done all they can to ensure that they have the best online shopping and that they are the first to respond to customer requests online.
“We work closely with the hotel suppliers, to ensure we are offering the best available online services,” the hotel association said in a statement.
“There is a lot of confusion on what is being offered and the best way to access the most relevant and relevant information on our sites, we have a full range of online tools that we are constantly working on and we have always taken steps to provide the most appropriate information to our customers.”
The hotel association also said it is “committed to offering our guests with the highest possible level of protection from fraudulent and abusive offers”.
