Have Hotels Market for You
Not everyone on vacation has already mapped out where they’re going to eat. Tourists are always looking for locals’ tips and hidden gems.
To tap into this market, reach out to nearby & notable tourist attractions. Establish a relationship with their owners and managers and offer an exchange for their loyal promotion of your restaurant. Give them menus to hand out or flyers promoting your restaurant. Maybe even work a special discount for hotel guests.
On the same note as the concierge tip, you can offer help to your guests by pointing out the whereabouts of specific shops in the area. Every referral helps.
