Six Flags St. Louis (SFStL) Discussion Thread in Theme Parks, Roller Coasters, & Donkeys! Posted June 26, 2019 I did the survey and I am sure all the details are not all listed for competitive reasons but I sure hope they are not planning on getting into this alone. If so, getting into the Hotel Business is a questionable venture for SFSTL at best, it's not a true year round park and doesn't have enough destination attractions to justify such a move considering the many already existing hotels in the area. The Hospitality industry is VERY competitive and having traveled for work a lot, if they want to get into this, they need to understand, they cannot run hotels like they run amusement parks. You can get by with running our park the way they have and get by with it. You can NOT run a hotel this way and expect good reviews which are vital to getting new business and repeat business at the rate you want regardless of what your perks are. Even hotels under the prestigious brands in certain cities fail coming from corporations with nearly a 100 years of experience. They also need to be aware of the return of a certain pest and how difficult it can be for even good hotels to keep those out and the lawsuits that have come from these even against hotels with very high ratings on Google. If they go such a route, they would be wise to have an experienced business partner (ex. Hilton, Marriott, Holiday Inn, Best Western, Drury, etc) connected with them to help them with having off season customers as the hotel will need business during those times as well and if it is not connected to a brand (and the rewards programs) this would be more difficult to have business during the significant portion of the year that the park is not open.
