  • Typically, it’s the ladies of the house that plan family vacations: they do the research; book the plane tickets and find the perfect hotels. If Pinterest’s user are predominantly women with the means to travel, hotels need to take advantage of this emerging market.They will pin the hotel they want to stay at, the airline they plan to use and all of the activities they plan to do while away; so it’s only natural that this new medium would be a great fit for hoteliers.
