Summary

Click on the links of the names of the lodging companies near the beginning of this article to find out the answers. How do you think you did on the quiz?

Some of the hotel brands listed above are rather obvious as to which lodging company they belong; but others are certainly not so obvious.

I did not include such lodging companies as Meliá Hotels and Resorts, which has a limited footprint; or casino companies whose brands are as few as one hotel property.

I am still considering writing an article to follow up this article pertaining to whether or not too many hotel brands exist — as well as whether or not enough differentiation exists between some of those brands — but I would first like to know your thoughts about hotel brands if you could please post them in the Comments section below; and you may be quoted in that aforementioned future article…
