Abstract
Detailed forecasts are major inputs to modern Hotel Rev-
enue Management Systems. Accurate forecasts are cru-
cial to improve rate and availability recommendations for
rooms. The data used for hotel demand forecasting are
based on current booking activities (Reservations), his-
torical information regarding daily arrivals or rooms sold.
Bookings are recent data that if used adequately can make
the forecasting process more responsive to demand shifts.
Very little work has been done on forecasting techniques
