The market has become optimistic on stronger quarterly statistics from the corporations since, in general, hotel companies offer better figures following the conclusion of festival season. The market is very attentive to how these hotel customers are using their credit. Due to the fact that despite rising bank interest rates, consumers have not reduced their spending, hotel corporations are anticipated to have considerably stronger results in the following quarters.”
