    Reverse auctions are a good way to make business for hotel.
    To be efficient, he have to be reactive on this market, it’s a real way to optimized the low period, by getting over type of clients.
    It could be a way to know what are ready to propose your competitors in a giving period.
    On my opinion, the hotel should give this mission to the reservation service, to a responsible person who shake every days the Reverse auctions opportunities.
