Since the globalisation started in the United States of America, it is interesting to discover the influence on the hotel business in Belgium. in Belgium. The main locations of hotels in Belgium are the Coast and the Art Cities (i.e. Brussels, Bruges, Antwerp and Ghent).

The profile of the Belgian business traveller has been investigated in the second part of the article, so the Belgium hotels have a better idea how to react on the needs and demands of their business guests.
