The paper discusses the incentive programs to customers offered by various leading hotel groups and highlights the positives and negatives resulting from these offers. The paper quotes comments by leading publications on the benefits of these programs, and states that true loyalty - benefit programs trust the customer rather than insisting on the customers' trust of the hotel. The paper further comments on the fact that a true loyalty program creates an asset by making the customer more attached to the brand over time.
