announces the signing of Safar Hotels, Inc. for private label voice, seamless GDS, Internet, and Booking Engine reservation services to the growing list of Safar Hotels, Express Inns, and Suites. Corporately located in Tampa, FL, Safar Hotels is a newly formed hotel membership organization created to help bridge the gap between hotel owners and conventional hotel franchise companies.
Safar Hotels’ mission statement is clear according to Julian Mazili, president of Safar Hotels, Inc., “Our mission is to help hotel owners take advantage of global brand identity, lodging industry technologies, and purchasing power without the albatross that some major brands apply to the franchisee in the current franchise climate. Our decision to partner with InnLink for its completely integrated reservation services was based on its outstanding record of success with companies like ours. InnLink’s dedicated staff is professional and innovative, and - best of all - they listen to the customer. Uniquely, InnLink knows both the hotel and reservation businesses - two very important and complimentary necessities for Safar Hotels that we didn’t find among other vendors when we evaluated outsourcing our reservation services.”
InnLink’s reservation technology offerings and superior customer service are unmatched in the reservation services industry. All InnLink accounts receive personal service - whether chain, franchise, or independent hotel - by Account Managers and account teams dedicated to the customer. Coupled with InnLink’s Marketing Solutions Group, InnLink delivers a path for greater productivity and increased reservations. Safar Hotels will utilize InnLink’s private label voice, seamless GDS, Internet, and Branded Booking Engine for all of its hotel properties.
Mike Young, InnLink’s president, comments that “InnLink and Safar Hotels have formed a solid partnership. We’ve work with growing hotel organizations in the past, and are committed to Safar Hotels’ success. They’ve come to the table at the right time with an innovative concept, and we’re honored to participate in their expansion and to provide key reservation services for their members.”
