Ovation Travel Group, a corporate travel management company, has identified a shift downwards in hotel rates for the first quarter of 2009 at three-, four-, and five- star hotel properties both domestic and international. Per a survey conducted by Ovation of over 92,000 room nights in 30 global destination cities, on average, three-, four-, and five- star properties have lowered their rates by 17.4 percent in the first quarter of 2009 compared to the first quarter of 2008.
