The company allows people to make money off empty apartments, how freaking cool is that? It has also been hit with controversies but people still choose Airbnb for its efficient service.
Airbnb has also been successful with the labor economy by implementing features for business travelers. Many traditional and private hotels target business travelers, but now that Airbnb is targeting the corporate world, the competition is getting tougher. To manage its reputation among the media people, the hotel managers refuse Airbnb being a potential threat. Also, hotels that offer rooms for cheaper prices could face an epic fail if Airbnb provides apartments in the same location. Airbnb does not offer hotels with many facilities as private hotels. The traditional hotels offer loyalty points to its users whereas Airbnb does not really credit its users. But honestly speaking, Airbnb is slowly taking over the hotel management industry, you cannot deny that fact!
