Part of the research was carried out by a survey applied to hotel guests, at the end obtaining 302 questionnaires. Procedures were performed for data treatment, the constructs unidimensionality and reliability, convergent validity, discriminant validity and nomological validity. The results indicate that the Brand Resonance Model has nomological validity, since all the theoretical relations between the constructs were statistically significant. In terms of outcome the rational path - formed by performance and judgment - has a greater impact on brand resonance than the emotional path - image and feeling.
