The History Lodging Industry

According to the historians, the origin of the lodge is not very clear. However, it believes that the Christian bible cites Christ’s birth in the first of an early inn. Between the 11th and 13th centuries knowing as taverns (inns) serviced the travelers on the roads of the Roman Empire. Providing service to the relatively large number of Crusaders . The traditional formula of an "Age Faith", providing we remember that the Middle Ages were many other things as well. Those of us who are fascinated by the growth of national cultures and theirs contribution to the composite pattern of Western civilization can not fail to notice that Europe was born in the Middle Ages. The word of Christ, coming from Jerusalem, added prestige to the Asiatics provinces of Roman Empire. At the opening of Middle Ages, however, the Germans overthrew the Roman barrier which had been cutting Europe in two. Sooner a number of missionaries, soldiers and merchants began to fan out toward the outlying of the European north and northest. That is in fact, made it, and the Middle Ages, great.

Men are the basic raw material of history. What matters, however, is the way raw material is put to use. Commerce among the various sections became the leading force in economic development. Industry made slower but significant gains. The foundations of modern banking, public finance and accounting were laid. Economic growth and intellectual achievements proceeded side by side, lending support to each other. The Middle Ages spreading literacy among commoners, and trained physicians, lawyers and thinkers in the first universities; medieval traders and preachers ventured all the way of China and tropical Africa. Commercial travel in Europe was an outgrowth of British commerce, which carried over to the American colonies in the 1700’s.

Mass tourism is a modern phenomenon that appears after World War II. Recently it is continues to grow as political freedom, economic resources, and social equality extend across the globe. With the large powers at peace and the economic engine of development running at full steam, international travel and, therefore the hotel industry are poised for decades of growth. Estimates abound as to the importance and size of hotel keeping. Certainly, their economic contribution is critical to the global Economy whether as destination for tourism development.

The father of modern mass tourism was Thomas Cook who, on 5 July 1841, organized the first package tour in history, by chartering a train to take a group of temperance campaigners from Leicester to a rally in Loughborough, some twenty miles away. There had been railway excursions before, but this one included entrance to an entertainment held in private grounds in the price. Cook immediately saw the potential of a convenient 'off the peg' holiday product in which everything was included in one cost. He organized packages inclusive of accommodation for the Great Exhibition, and afterwards pioneered package holidays in both Britain (particularly in Scotland) and on the European continent (where Paris and the Alps were the most popular destinations). He was soon followed by others (the Polytechnic Touring Association, Dean and Dawson etc.), with the result that the tourist industry developed rapidly in early Victorian Britain. Initially it was supported by the growing middle classes, who had time off from their work, and who could afford the luxury of travel and possibly even staying for periods in boarding houses.
