HotelREZ has reported that in just over two years it has added 550 hotels to its collection including the likes of Exclusive Hotels, the Handpicked Collection, Des Etrangers et Miramare Hotel, B&H Hotels Italy, Bespoke Hotels and many more.
With over 60 new properties signing between June and August, Executive Director of HotelREZ, Brenda Collin stated, ‘I am delighted that more and more hotels are deciding to join HotelREZ - we now represent hotels in 18 countries around the world including the UK, Mauritius, India, Italy and France to name but a few. And, with the portfolio expanding at such a rate, our focus will remain on providing the highest level of service and support to our customers through increasing each hotel’s productivity as well as exploiting its full potential to travel agents and consumers alike.’
Established in April 2004 to meet the specific needs of independent and small chain hotels, HotelREZ offers its clients a unique proposition covering the entire spectrum of demand generation, marketing and distribution technology, and, according to Managing Director, Mark Lewis, the reason for its rapid and sustained growth pattern is the close working relationships it has with all of its hotel members.
Mark explains, ‘Our team at HotelREZ is made up of individuals who know the travel industry inside and out, and are able to successfully transfer this knowledge to our customers. It has always been our aim that we do not become a faceless company and, to this end, we speak and meet regularly with all our clients, we undertake all of our own training and system checks, ensure that all potential marketing avenues for each hotel are explored, plus, in the very near future we will be making an announcement about our own chain code which will be of significant benefit to all our members.’
Mark continues, ‘The partnerships we have developed with our hotel members over the last two years have ensured that they are still reporting huge increases in revenue when compared to previous providers as well as significant reductions in GDS expenditure.’
As part of its continuing commitment to its hotel members, and ensuring its visibility to the travel industry, including agents and travel managers, HotelREZ has also secured a stand at the World Travel Market and can be seen on stand number GV5900 from 6th-9th November at Excel.
In addition to outreach sales, marketing and connectivity solutions, the HotelREZ proposition includes a host of additional services covering consultancy, financial commission reconciliation services, training and development, and web design/optimisation.
