has implemented an agreement with SynXis Corporation
to serve as a preferred distributor of net rate hotel inventory, a service that the reservation service provider will make available to its more than 3,800 hotel member properties worldwide.
McLean, Va.-based SynXis` hotel user base includes MGM Mirage Group, CHIP Hospitality, Ringhotels, Windmill Inns, and Sutton Place Hotels.
Travelweb LLC, originally launched as Hotel Distribution System LLC in February 2002, is backed by Hilton Hotels Corporation, Hyatt Corporation, Marriott International, Six Continents Hotels, Starwood Hotels and travel technology provider Pegasus Solutions, Inc.
The two-year agreement gives SynXis` member hotels the ability to offer consumers net rate hotel room inventory through Travelweb`s new automated system that delivers up-to-the-minute discounted hotel rooms directly from the hotel` s inventory in the SynXis Reservation Management System. Travelweb LLC will include SynXis` hotel members` net rates in its private-label offerings distributed via third-party sites such as Orbitz.
Additionally, the member hotels` discounted inventory will be available via Travelweb.com this fall.
