Although many hotels rely on the natural environmentto attract guests, a survey of European hoteliers findsthat environmental stewardship has taken a backseatto other operational concerns in many cases. Nevertheless,the surveyed hoteliers recognized that thehotel industry would do well to be more environmentallyconscious. Managers in chain-affiliatedhotels were generally more likely to pay attention toenvironmental issues than were independent operators,many of whom run small properties. The respondentsnoted that fewhotel guests demand that hotelsmaintain environmental programs.
