- Sociological perspective: ideas of
home are important to
understandings of culture
- So… home is the site of hospitality?

ehaviour lie?
What is Home?
 Home is central to people’s culture . Home is about culture. People’s ideas of
home are different but within a culture there are common ideas
 If I am a tourist and I want to have a cultural experience there can be no
etter way of doing it than to stay in someone's home.
 Home is about their culture,, their everyday lives.
 It’s about the food they eat .
 Its how they are different to you .
In commercial hospitality we are told that customer is king . We have to do what
the customer wants .When we stay at hotels we know we can ask and we will get
English speaking staff English menus the performance
 Think about staying at home versus staying at a hotel is it the same?
 When we think about tourism more
oadly, it’s economic success is
predicated on the ability for people to travel.
 That means leaving home and moving into an area of ‘risk’ or
 Thus the role of the hospitality sector in particular is to minimize any
possibility of risk.
 In order to do that organizations both business and public act to replace
‘home’. They offer products and services that mimic the tourists home in
order to mitigate risk. As we saw in the video about IHG hotels and Pan
American Airlines, global mobility was initially built upon a standardized
home-away-from home.
 Thus we can see the rise of hotel chains such as Holiday
Inn, where no matter where in the world you might be
you would be understood (the staff would speak
English), the food would be familiar— for example the
ubiquitous steak sandwich and your every need would
e met. However that meant the need to perform a
different identity—that of the ‘consumer’. Everything
ecomes the same in order to be replicable!
‘Successful tourism requires more than having good
transportation, hotels and resorts. It thrives on the
spirit of hospitality-that particularly national
flavour that shows traditional ways of life and
projects a favourable image too tourists purchasing
goods and services’
Resinger & Turner (2003)
ent thinking…
Home Ours or someone else's?
 Whilst globalization—in this case the rise of the trans
national hotel corporation-has facilitated the ability for
more and more people to travel it has also led to a
disconnect between place and hotel.
 That is the hotel became about replicating the home of the
traveller, rather than be a representation of the home of
the people who lived in the place being visited!
Home Ours or someone else's?
 However, as tourists have become more sophisticated (that
is they become more experienced as they travel more
often) they have started to change their behaviours. Whilst
initially travelling away from home meant the mitigation of
isk—increasingly tourists are understanding that in order
to have an authentic or meaningful experience then one
needs to engage with not just the landscape through which
they travel but also the people who call these places
Home: Ours or Someone else ?
 This means accepting ‘difference’ (and thus
isk). The home of someone in another
country is going to be different to your
own—and it is this difference that is
considered. ‘authentic’.
 People want to engage with destinations (not just
observe them or feel removed from a sense of place
within a hotel) and to experience places in a
memorable and fresh way. As a result, there’s less focus
is on material goods (“gold taps”) and more focus on
an enhanced state of being.
 Consumers are seeking more authentic travel
experiences, tour operators and hotels have the chance
to reach out to their communities and
idge the gap.
 We want culture, connection, interaction. We want to
engage, rather than observe. Learn as opposed to
teaching. Explore instead of ignore.

Commercial Hospitality is an extension of Hospitality at Home
The hospitality industry is one of the most profitable industries in the world. The industry is huge and by any standards, consists of various other industries as well. It includes theme parks, which are included in the entertainment industry, transportation, which is in itself an industry, lodges and hotels. Hotels and lodgings, including casinos, have made many people rich and famous, including the cu
ent President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, and the famous hotel heiress and socialite, Paris Hilton. The secret of a good hotel or any place in the hospitality industry is to make the person feel like they're at home but in an elevated version of home. This seems to be one of the best-kept secrets that the hospitality industry holds that have been revealed over the years.
Home in the Hospitality
Many people feel that the best hotels are the ones where you can feel at home. The best places to live in when people travel, whether it be an Ai
nb, a hotel or a lodge have been those that have the feeling of home. This idea is so prevalent that Ai
nb especially markets and advertises their products via the feeling of home (Fats, 2015).They have been known to show warm homes, with actors who talk about how it’s like living in a home. The idea is that it’s a home away from home, which in many cases it is.
They build on this idea of the commercial home being just like the real home. This has been known to be true in most cases. There are many reasons why these strategies, the idea of creating a home away from home seem to work.
The first looks at the idea of why tourists travel to a particular country or place. Many of them travel to experience a culture that is either similar to their own or completely different from their own. Most people who travel to Asia are from places like Europe or America, who have never witnessed Asian culture, except the watered down culture that appears in the streets of their country. They have witnessed a part of the culture in their homes, and are looking to experience it in its wholesomeness in their travel (Simpson et al., 2016). That is why most luxury Asian hotels and resorts play to their culture. A famous resort in Kerala in India, for example, caters to tourists in such the Indian culture, gives them coconuts, serves them traditional Indian meals and the spa has Ayurveda, the traditional practice of healing in India. This is how most places cater to the people. They give the tourists an experience that is completely different from the one that they have at home. On the other end of the spectrum, there are people who go and wish to have the same culture that they have in their home countries. This is why places like the Hilton or the Ritz Carlton have been extremely successful in getting their customers. There are those who have been...
