Hospitality International's Alliance with InnLink Results
in Reservations' Increase of Over 100%

Hendersonville, TN and Tucker, GA – May 8, 2002 -  HOSPITALITY INTERNATIONAL announced that reservations volume has more than doubled since the company implemented InnLink’s complete array of reservation services in December of 2001.

Hospitality International, Inc., located in Tucker, Georgia, an Atlanta suburb, is the exclusive franchisor of Scottish Inns, Red Carpet Inn, Master Hosts Inns, Passport Inn and Downtowner Inns.  Founded in 1982 and with over 250 hotels in the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean, Hospitality International has experienced a tremendous growth in reservation activity since implementation of InnLink’s reservation services.

According to Betsy Brown, president of Hospitality International, “The decision to move reservation services to InnLink wasn’t made hastily or without careful analysis of the marketplace.  For many years, Hospitality International operated its own reservation call center.  In December of 2001, Hospitality International activated InnLink’s private label, voice and Internet reservation services and seamless GDS connectivity for its franchised hotels.  The results speak for themselves.  Our reservations volume has more than doubled, and most of our inns’ busiest season is yet to come. The visibility that GDS and Internet channels have brought to our franchisees is more than we imagined, accounting for the bulk of the increase in reservations.”

Mike Young, president of InnLink says, “Hospitality International has been a pleasure to work with, and it’s been a very rewarding partnership. Being a part of this aspect of their growth is a tribute to our hard work and joint efforts to raise reservations volume, brand visibility, and revenues across the board.  We expect the results to continue and to improve.”
