The Lexington Collection has designed www.LexingtonHotels.com, a comprehensive website that allows consumers to view each individual property’s special offerings, amenities and services, local attractions, and package deals.
Through a state-of-the-art booking engine, consumers can make reservations on the website without having to do further research at third-party sites. This booking engine also allows the property to make real-time changes to the website in order to update amenities and package deals.
“This is just the start of an incredible website,” said John Burkard, Vice President of Information Technology. “In the very near future, www.LexingtonHotels.com will offer meeting and event planning tools for conference and wedding planners, virtual tours of individual properties, and interactive maps that contain narrative and visual content to highlight nearby attractions.”
In less than a year, Vantage Hospitality’s upscale hotel brand, The Lexington Collection, already has seven luxury properties up and running, another five under extensive construction, and at least six more ready to come onboard in the next few months.
“The response to a membership brand in the three and four star upscale lodging segments has been tremendous,” said Belmonte, who took the helm in September 2006. “The benefits of a hotel membership brand don’t just help the hotel owners. Having lower fees, short-term contracts, and the ability to keep your independence and choose amenities based on your market niche ultimately benefits the consumer.”
