SSSIn 1988, it was common practice for vendors to supply the hotels with plain or laminated paper stitched directories. Southern Hospitality's owner and founder, Rick Garrett, saw a need for a change. Southern Hospitality was the first vendor to supply the hotels with beautiful faux leather three ring binders to contain their directory of service information. Not only does this enhance the hotel's image with the guest, it provides the guest valuable information concerning the hotel property, features, security and local venues for dining and entertainment, etc.

SSSWithout these directories, many of these businesses would go unnoticed by the visiting guest. It is well documented that most out of town guests will patronize restaurants, bars, night clubs, gyms, salons and other retail outlets during their stay. It is also well documented that guests visiting a new area will more likely use the hotel's directory for useful dining and entertainment venues that are local and nearby.

SSSGreater convenience is added when QR codes are used in the ads themselves. Smartphone technology allows the hotel guest to view far more information concerning the local establishment in less time than by conventional web surfing. QR codes are invaluable for web traffic statistics, increasing click thru rates and other marketing information that companies use to track campaigns and user demographics.
