Would it be possible to compile this data into a more readable/searchable format? It's hard to get data point for a specific hotel for instance.
Does this platform allow hosting spreadsheet or something?

You can SEARCH THIS THREAD using the property name of interest. It’s not too hard. But it’s usually best to check the property thread for more responses and better and more reliably detailed info.
