You have been asked to identify three key contemporary issues facing the hotel sector. You should initially establish why you have selected your examples before critically analysing the issues, offering recommendations and solutions for each. Students should provide examples as part of this section. The next section of your assignment should focus on critically analysing ethical and sustainable developments in the hotel sector, evaluating the sustainable practices in two specific hotel examples. Your final piece will explore the challenges the hotel industry faces in a global context. As part of that research you will also need to consider the context of cultural and sociological issues raised by the development of the Hotel industry in new tourism destinations, clearly identifying how ‘new’ tourism destinations are classified and why. Finally, you are expected to produce a critical summary of your research. You are expected to use existing literature, such as journal articles and books, to guide your research. It is therefore imperative that you support every argument you make, through the use of references. Your report should draw on relevant theories and concepts, applied analysis of data, country or company information and a discussion of issues, recognising a range of perspectives.
