Operations are Taking Off
|BALTIMORE 3 March 2004: HotelClub.com
world-leading full service provider of online hotel reservation services,
has experienced strong success partly due to its operations based
in the United States. Launched in mid 200, the North American market
has grown to account for over 15 per cent of all HotelClub.com customers.
HotelClub.com is the leading online accommodation provider in Asia Pacific and a major player in European markets – with an established network of ten offices around the world including the United Kingdom, France and Germany.
HotelClub.com features 7,000 hotels in 35 countries, and represents over 500 hotels across 52 cities in the United States. HotelClub.com provides its users with access to both planned and last minute bookings on one website. The last minute service provides consumers the ability book hotels up to 20 days before their check in dates. This provides hotels with another channel to distribute their distressed inventory and still retain full control over the rates.
“HotelClub.com has established itself as a major website in both the Europe and Asia Pacific markets. Over the past nine years we have consistently experienced up to 500 per cent annual growth despite industry downturns” said Ms Chloe Lim, Director of Marketing, HotelClub.com.
“We view North America as vital to our continued success. We are in the process of establishing partnership arrangements with American based hotels, travel agents and distribution networks, and have already secured hotels including Ian Schrager Hotels, South Beach Hotel Group, South Seas Hotels and Outrigger Resorts” Ms Lim.
“HotelClub.com has opened up opportunities to our company in new markets, increasing our exposure, without additional expenses and with great success” Ms Maria Elena Kaldani, Global Director of Leisure Sales, Ian Schrager Hotels.
The HotelClub.com site is currently available in seven languages including Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish and receives in excess of 2.5 million unique visitors each month.
