The Sochi problem.
Friday, 7th February 2014
Source : Joseph 'Yossi' Fischer

Trending Now: The numerous reports from Sochi are not very positive specifically when it comes to the new hotel infrastructure.

According to the International media very few hotels (if any) are actually ready to receive guests .

My question is how come international hotel groups with clear standards agreed to go to such an adventure let alone do they actually have a plan for the 'day after' the winter Olympics is over?

International hotel groups such as : Accor, Marriott, Fairmont-Swissotel, Rezidor.

Daily Maill, Feb 5: 'Sochi 2014 journalists find hotels awash with stray dogs and toxic brown water.'

Suck a shame, all this negatve coverage, lets focus on the sports aspect and may the best one win gold.

If you use the recent locations that have hosted the games (winter or summer), there is always an over supply of hotels afterwards and a HUGE business void appears. When will the hotel companies learn? or is it just about telling the shareholders how more rooms globally have been opened and worry about business later?
