Special Hotels of the World, the niche marketing alliance for first class, independent hotels, launched earlier this year by the Great Hotels Organisation, has entered an agreement with WorldChoiceTravel.com to power its recently launched website www.shotw.com.Ê Acquired by Travelocity last November, WorldChoiceTravel.com taps directly into the Sabre GDS thus providing consumers to the Special Hotels website with access to real time rates and availability.
CEO of the Great Hotels Organisation, Peter Gould comments, “Having investigated suitable online partners for the Special Hotels website, it is clear that WorldChoiceTravel.com is the market leader.Ê Their superior technology enables visitors to the Special Hotels website to make real time reservations and rate enquiries at all member hotels.Ê We are delighted to be working with them on this venture.”
Special Hotels of the World uniquely allows visitors to its website to browse and choose hotels by Special features and facilities, such as scuba diving, gourmet dining and city centre.Ê The website also features a range of seasonal Special Offers, available exclusively to those booking via the Special Hotels website.
The Great Hotels Organisation firmly believes in the increasing need for travel websites to pre-select quality hotels for consumers, thus facilitating and speeding up their booking experience.Ê All visitors to the Special Hotels website are assured of high quality hotels that offer a unique or ‘special’ experience for guests.Ê
The Great Hotels Organisation is projecting that the Special Hotels website will receive 1 million visitors in its first year.Ê
