The Hotel Business: Service Industry or Self-Service Industry? More and more of the technology-based IS’s that are being integrated into the hotel  industry, though cost-effective and possibly more efficient, are beginning to take away  from the true meaning of service and encourage a major societal transformation. In  order to persuade you that preventive action needs to be taken, I will be discussing the  ways in which, during the past decade, technology-based IS’s have begun to reformat  both the industry’s view and the customer’s view on the meaning of service. In this  report, I will define the word “service” (in the way that I am arguing it should be used)
