That is, if we were able to place a hotel with the same characteristics and services at two different destinations, would both have the same rating or would they differ? By using multilevel regression analysis, we have quantified the extent to which differences in client satisfaction with hotels can be attributed to the destination in which the hotels are located. We have measured this through ratings provided through social media outlets. Data downloaded from TripAdvisor from a sample of 7173 hotels were used. After controlling for specific variables, an 11.38% of the variance could be attributed to the destination. Thus, both hotels and destination management organizations (DMOs) are involved in client satisfaction and must work jointly to secure it.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/43783||ISSN:||0278-4319||DOI:||10.1016/j.ijhm.2013.05.003||Source:||International Journal of Hospitality Management[ISSN 0278-4319],v. 35, p. 44-47|
