Minimum Length of Stay: As you can assume from the name, a Minimum Length of Stay is a restrictor that requires a reservation to be made for a certain amount of nights. If a MLOS is put into place in advance, it is a great way to get the most out of a high demand date. A MLOS allows you to develop a relatively even occupancy pattern for these high demand periods, meaning that your hotel can also profit from the shoulder dates (the days which surround the high demand date). Closed To Arrival: Closed to Arrival keeps guests from arriving on a specific date, so will help you to further achieve even occupancy. Furthermore, it will reduce any extra pressure that would otherwise be put on your front desk if they are preparing for a large group arrival. Closed to arrivals can be used both in conjunction with MLOS restrictions or on their own. Get the full story at Net Affinity
