Check out this closet at an Airbnb I'm staying at in Charleston- this is why I love inspected properties like bbcom diamond collection, select registry, etc. It's all in the details!

Why would you stay at an "Airbnb" at all?

Question for the group - - we are speaking at the HMS in Denver next week on " Taking Your Rooms from Yesterday Today" highlighting some of the smart ideas and trends we have seen in the 150 inns and 10 years we have been shooting in this industry. 

Question is what room, paint color sells the BEST? Pale blue, rich red, yellow, neutral, etc?? I have an idea but wanted to get the groups opinion. Thanks!

Hope to see some of you guys there!

+Matthew Lovette I so wish I could go. Will have to wait to see you and Mark until Rehoboth, I hope.
You know our inn and we are still stuck in the 80s a bit (I promise to tackle some of wallpaper this winter) but I think it's the amenities that rule most decisions. Forget the whirlpool tubs, we have 6, and we hardly get a request for them anymore. It's breakfast and king beds and updated large bathrooms with fancy showers and/or soaking tubs and the fireplaces.
Maybe I'm totally wrong.

We recently returned from a food shoot at a long-time client's inn and Mark was compelled to write an open love letter - check it out along with pictures from the shoot

Buuteeq - a popular website service in our industry is now owned by the Priceline/Booking family. Wonder what this means for all of our customers using this service?

No real surprise here Matt as they were in it to sell it and they did.  
I am surprised you have customers using that service because if they are savvy enough to hire Jumping Rock, they should have been savvy enough to know the Buuteeq platform was not the best platform for their unique property.  It will be interesting to see how far down the priority chain B&B's will be in this new joint venture.

Practicality dictated that most of our upstairs trim be painted. We are ALWAYS touching it up! Ugh.  I'm pleased to get around to staining and finishing much of our original, hand crafted quarter sawn white oak downstairs. I much prefer it!

We stumbled upon some really amazing room makeovers - and some SCARY "befores" in prep for our presentation at the +Hospitality Marketing Summit  in Colorado next week. Some great ideas and tips in this post from some very smart innkeepers. Lots more of this in Denver

What makes a photo go VIRAL ??- What food photo drove over 15,000 unique visits to a blog post last year? Why?? Think beyond Facebook and Twitter. We explore all this in a new post:

Check out a great summer recipe (and gluten free!) and new interior shots from +Squam Lake Inn in Holderness NH. We love this place and the whole darn team.

We recently did an update shoot for Saratoga Arms up in NY state. Wanted to share some of the really smart changes they made to update the decor without breaking the bank. Gotta see the before/after shots in this post. A few changes can make quite an impact
