As consumers' expectations of accommodation experience increase, boutique hotels are increasingly favored by investors and consumers. In the past 5 years, the growth rate of boutique hotels has remained above 10%, and the brand influence has been continuously improved. Boutique hotels such as Banyan Tree, Angsana, and Liushan will accelerate their expansion in 2018, and all plan to open more stores.
In addition to boutique hotels, homestays are also showing a rapid rise. According to the data of the 'Homestay Short-term Rental Development Report 2017' released by Tujia at its strategic conference, the average domestic homestay in 2017 was 401 yuan / night, and the average nightly price in eight domestic cities exceeded 1,000 yuan. The report also pointed out that the short-term rental of homestays has entered a period of rapid growth, and there is a tendency to 'luxury', but the price / performance ratio still far exceeds that of hotels.

The disadvantages of this model are the difficulty of obtaining information, the large geographical restrictions and the long transaction process. In order to solve the above shortcomings, the hotel supplies industry has been trying to 'shock', but the effect is always not good.
