Hotels today are pushing local experiences, but, frankly, I don’t think local experiences cut it. Consumers are looking for genuine experiences. If you have someone visiting Chicago for the first time and they say, “I want to try deep dish pizza”, anyone can rattle off the top locations and then say, “Pick one. They’re all great.” That is local. If you say, “Hey, you should check out ABC place, located at X, it’s the best pizza you will ever have in the city!” that is genuine. That’s what guests are really looking for — curated experiences, not just blanket recommendations.
