This paper explores the evolution of the efficiency of a hotel chain and its implications in terms of competitiveness. A gravity model and a data envelopment analysis (DEA) are implemented in a dynamic framework. The former generates the tourism demand towards each hotel of the chain whereas DEA Window analysis is run to capture efficiency changes over time. A DEA based Malmquist productivity index is used to measure the productivity change and to decompose any change into the catching-up and the frontier-shift effect. We find that policies implemented according to DEA Window analysis increase the efficiency scores for the hotel chain and its competitiveness.

Abstract

This paper explores the evolution of the efficiency of a hotel chain and its implications in terms of competitiveness. A gravity model and a data envelopment analysis (DEA) are implemented in a dynamic framework. The former generates the tourism demand towards each hotel of the chain whereas DEA Window analysis is run to capture efficiency changes over time. A DEA based Malmquist productivity index is used to measure the productivity change and to decompose any change into the catching-up and the frontier-shift effect. We find that policies implemented according to DEA Window analysis increase the efficiency scores for the hotel chain and its competitiveness.
