The Killer Application of Revenue Management: Harrah's Cherokee Casino & Hotel Academic Article uri icon


  • Harrah's Cherokee Casino & Hotel is an unusual example of the use of revenue-management (RM) techniques. Typical RM installations yield revenue improvements of between 3 and 7 percent. The Harrah chain has seen 15-percent improvements, with Harrah's Cherokee Casino & Hotel as the largest beneficiaryalthough it does not serve alcohol or have traditional table games. In addition, the RM techniques that the Cherokee uses, such as its pricing decisions and customer-segmentation rules, are different from those used in RM applications in other industries.
