E-BESTHOTELS.com was recognized as one of the best new technology products in the industry when it was a finalist in the Editor’s Choice Competition at this winter’s International Hotel/Motel & Restaurant Show in New York City. More than 1,900 vendors were present at this prestigious show.
The product was not only well-received by the industry experts, but hotel operators found the product a practical tool to redirect reservations from third-party Web sites. E-BESTHOTELS.com sends customers searching the Web for hotel rooms back to a brand’s proprietary site instead of a third-party web site. E-BESTHOTELS.com now has preferred agreements with Choice Hotels as well as 400 La Quinta hotels. Hyatt, Hilton and Marriott hotels are also among the many hotels represented on the site.
E-BESTHOTELS.com provides an additional avenue for hoteliers to help drive reservations back to their own branded website. Hotel operators can be listed on the site for a low annual fee with no additional charges or commissions. The site features a very easy navigational system that allows users to click on the state, and then the city, of the intended destination. A list of participating hotels then populates the screen and consumers click on the hotel of their choice and are seamlessly transferred directly into that hotel’s own booking engine.
EMC Solutions, the company that developed E-BESTHOTELS.com assures hotel owners that potential guests will know about the site because it’s positioned within the top-10 placements and sponsored sections for common travel terminology on such popular search engines as Google and Yahoo. This means when a consumer goes to one of these popular search engines and types such common words or phrases as best resorts, Los Angeles hotels etc., E-BESTHOTELS.com will be one of the top options and effortlessly allow a perspective guest to make a reservation in a desired location.
EMC Solutions is offering a special annual rate of $99 for hotel operators who join the site during the first quarter of 2004. Enrollment is easy, just visit E-BESTHOTELS.com and click on “get listed” on the left hand side of the screen. Step-by-step instructions will help complete the process. For questions or more information about the different levels of sponsorship available contact EMC Solutions at (480) 538-0854 or [email protected]
“This site promises to help hotels capture lost revenue. I encourage all hotels to give the site a try and see the savings for themselves, whether a small independent hotel or an entire chain,” explains Evan Cover, president of EMC Solutions. “I truly believe this service will help augment and enhance any hotel or resort’s search engine strategy as people continue to use the Web with ever-increasing frequency and ease.”
