As digital technologies are having greater integration in our everyday life, the hospitality sector needs to be adapted respectively with deeper integration of newer technologies within its environment. This study investigates how technology impacts the everyday consumer behavior within the hospitality sector with the introduction of mobile and IoT technologies and social media. Our study shows that current mobile applications lacks the integration of significant factors found important to consumers in the hospitality industry.
