the place of accommodations in tourism and vice versa

the social, ecological and economic implications of lodging development

management and restructuring issues in a globalizing industry

sustainable tourism and the accommodation sector

cross-sectoral linkages between lodging, food services, gaming, conferences, and other intermediaries

the interaction between supply and demand

safety and security in tourism and lodging.

Tourism and the Lodging Sector critically examines a wide range of lodging establishments from an industry and social science perspective, drawing parallels and distinctions between the various types of accommodation, from campgrounds for the cost-conscious or adventurous outdoor traveler, to luxury, 5-star resorts, and more innovative accommodation such as tree-house hotels and ecologes.
