With young children to raise, this group would choose a mid-scale and child-friendly hotel. This group is also price sensitive and would consider greater value from their budget. This group is tech savvy and relies mainly on online research including Trip Advisor reviews and blogs. Interest in a hotel may be triggered by photos on Instagram, but reading personal reviews would be the deciding factor for this group.
