“We’re ecstatic to see such phenomenal growth results, we’ve totally exceeded our expectations this past year,” said Daniel Simmons, Chief Commercial Officer, HotelREZ Hotels & Resorts. “Not only are hotels joining us to represent them with third party channels, but they’ve been adopting our Web Services products to drive more direct business – this is a real testament to the investment we’re making in our consultancy team twinned with our technology.”
In the past year, HotelREZ Hotels & Resorts has launched a number of new products as part of its Web Services portfolio including digital advertising for Paid Ads and Metasearch, website design, and a number of tools and widgets for its booking engine to boost conversion.
“Independent hotels and accommodation providers recognise the value and benefits of working with an experienced team to better enable their sales and revenue performance,” said Mark Lewis, CEO, HotelREZ Hotels & Resorts. “It’s allowing them to focus on the hospitality experience and operations to service their guests without being distracted by the day-to-day need to source business. We live and breathe hotels to produce high-rated revenue from the most suitable target markets at an attractive cost of sale that allow our customers to truly thrive.”
On looking at how 2024 is expected to perform, Simmons commented: “We are seeing the domestic market remain strong, though strikes and weather will continue to have an impact on consumer booking decisions. For business travel, independent hotels are becoming more popular with agencies, especially aparthotels and pubs with rooms – two key accommodation sectors on the GDS. Furthermore, the GDS stands resilient and continues to grow especially with the increase in SME corporate clients.
Founded in 2004, HotelREZ Hotels & Resorts will soon be celebrating two decades in business with Mark Lewis at the helm.
