Managerial and Decision Economics, 2020, vol. 41, issue 1, 49-63

Abstract: We investigate whether and to what extent price competition among hotels in Manhattan is driven by geographic location, quality, and online reputation. We investigate (a) which of the three product differentiation dimensions matters most for hotels' pricing decisions and (b) whether and to what extent competition is localized. Results show that hotel quality and geographic location matter the most for price competition. Whereas hotels of similar reputation also react to each other's prices, the effect is less important. Also, results indicate that hotels' prices react most aggressively to prices set by the four nearest hotels in the area.
