The use of technology surged in hotels as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, with devices being brought in to reduce the risk of person-to-person contact. But what will happen to these devices once the pandemic comes to an end? We speak to hotel owners to find out how hoteliers can use technology to enhance the guest experience post-pandemic.

Also, following criticism over the news that travellers will be required to fork out for government-ordered quarantine periods in hotels we explore the challenges of hosting quarantining guests and find out why ghost kitchens have been taking up residence in hotel restaurants during lockdown.

Plus, we take a look at some of the most notable hotel openings and design concepts hitting the market and get the latest insight and analysis from GlobalData.
