The infographic begins with catalyst drivers for travelers, and reveals Consumer Reviews and certain Package Incentives like culinary offerings to be most important when deciding where to stay. Next the infographic explores important amenities and B&B offerings to sway the traveler to their property. Always, think B&B’s have shared bathrooms?
