Good grief,  this is not really a good lead in, is it when it talks about - 

"While these only-slightly exaggerated experiences are still prevalent at B&Bs across the globe, there’s a lot more diversity in this lodging market segment than most guests realize. "

It's like a left handed compliment....

Can I just scream now? They are reverse quoting PAII survey results by saying 'more than 97 percent of B&Bs offer private baths in some, if not all rooms.' The way they have stated it implies that 97% of B&B's probably have at least two rooms that share a bath. And the other 3% definitely have shared baths for all the rooms.

I do like the way this was put... “We offer peer services, which is better than a concierge service, because as hosts, we are your equal and not a subordinate,” she notes.

Again, they pulled out all the 'scare tactics' to keep guests away. And now have added a few more by stating B&B's are trying to recreate the 'hotel experience' in our guest rooms.
