Having such a numerous number of selections of hotel brands at the present time, are customers loyal to a hotel because of their preference in a specific brand or are they loyal because of the additional benefits they can receive from partnering companies? In other words, does strategic alliance create value and increase customer satisfaction which leads to customer loyalty? The purpose of this paper is to determine the strategic alliance impact on loyalty customers; This study designed a questionnaire and conducted a survey and performed regression analysis to test the hypotheses. This study tried to examine how customers perceive the value creation factors initiated by hotels in relation with partnerships to measure the strategic alliance impact.
