This study uses ratio analysis to examine salient financial trends within four major sectors of the hospitality industry for the 1997-2001 period – namely lodging, restaurants, airlines and the amusement sectors. Cross-sectional analysis results indicate that at least for the test period, eight out of thirteen financial ratios were statistically different across the four hospitality segments. As such, financial trends and cross sectional anomalies within the examined hospitality industry segments are better understood.
