A Question (hotel chains etc)[edit]

[Moved from Travellers' pub by Hypatia 18:29, 16 Dec 2004 (EST)]

Hi there! I am fairly new to Wikitravel, but have been using Wikipedia for quite some time. I have been mostly editing my home city of Salt Lake City and really enjoy the fact that I can add things I could never add to Wikipedia:Salt Lake City, Utah, although they both have their purpose. As a member of the travel industry, I was wondering if there is a place for articles about such topics as various hotel chains (for example Holiday Inn or Ramada) or various parts of travel, other than specific locations? Thanks, hope to hear back!! --SLC Punk! 17:25, 8 Nov 2004 (EST)

Hi. There is a place for that kind of thing, it's Travel topics. With regard to reviewing chains or providers, it seems like the current procedure is to put them in one comparison article, so we have Discount airlines in Europe for example, rather than separate articles for Ryanair, Easyjet, BMI Baby... So I imagine you could do the same thing with Hotel chains, or if you really want to review a lot of them you could do separate Hotel chains in the USA and Hotel chains in Europe or even Budget hotel chains in the USA and Luxurious hotel chains in the USA articles etc etc etc... -- Hypatia 18:13, 8 Nov 2004 (EST)
I agree. We very rarely have articles about an individual business or chain, but rather treat a group of businesses or organizations as a whole, for comparison. --Evan 21:04, 8 Nov 2004 (EST)

Hey, thanks for the info! I really appreciate the info, as well as the awesome site! --SLC Punk! 21:28, 8 Nov 2004 (EST)


Well...I haven't contributed much lately, so I guess that's why I didn't notice the comment left on my talk page (10 months ago...) until now. Yeah, I felt the Salt Lake City article was sadly underdone and I plan to do more soon (although there's not a lot more I can really contribute). You may not respond to this (I notice you haven't been very active on Wikipedia as of late, and therefore I assume not on here either), but nice knowing you're on here either way.
