Tyler Morse | CEO of MCR Hotels
This week’s podcast guest is Tyler Morse, CEO of MCR Hotels, the 3rd largest owner-operator of hotels in the U.S, and the developer of the award winning TWA Hotel at JFK.
Matt and Tyler talk broadly about the dynamics of today’s hotel business, which Tyler said is now driven largely by the large chain reward programs. He talks about the ecosystem with the highly profitable limited services hotels driving business travel from which travelers gain points to then use for family leisure travel at the luxury end. Tyler talks a lot about the psychology driving consumer behavior and the democratization of travel. Tyler sees a Roaring Twenties in the demand and drive for travel following the COVID lockdown. And, finally, Tyler talks the story of his passion project, the TWA Hotel.
