Airbnb vs. Hotels
What annoys me about the discussion on Airbnb being a threat to hotels is that the reaction by many hoteliers it to try and lobby them out of existence. That is, possibly, the worst solution one could imagine. Personally, I think Airbnb is positioning themselves in that space as a red herring because their real competition is OTAs. There is a demand for what Airbnb supplies, period. Airbnb was just better at answering to that demand. As hoteliers, it might be a better idea to exclusively use Airbnb for 6 months and find out what they do better, and what they do worse. And then innovate.
