I've never stayed at one of their establishments, but the model that JdV has pursued is interesting: extreme transparency, individuality in their product offering, respect for workforce in an industry renowned for abuse.
Are these things a competitive advantage, or is it self-defeating in a way by hindering growth (along with the spread of more sustainable practices)?
What lessons can social entrepreneurs take as we look at how to transform the rest of the hospitality industry?
