Abstract

Cities around the world have reopened from the lockdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and more and more people are planning regional travel. Therefore, it is a practical problem to recommend suitable hotels to travelers amid the COVID-19 pandemic. However, it is also a challenging task since the critical factors that affect hotel selection amid the COVID-19 pandemic may be different from those usually considered. From this perspective, the fuzzy analytic hierarchy process-enhanced fuzzy geometric mean-fuzzy technique for order preference by similarity to ideal solution approach is proposed in this study for hotel recommendation. The proposed methodology not only considers the critical factors affecting hotel selection amid the COVID-19 pandemic, but also establishes a systematic mechanism, that is, enhanced fuzzy geometric mean, to simultaneously improve the accuracy and efficiency of the recommendation process. The fuzzy analytic hierarchy process-enhanced fuzzy geometric mean-fuzzy technique for order preference by similarity to ideal solution approach has been successfully applied to recommend suitable hotels to 10 travelers for regional trips amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
