Value Place Goes Live with InnLink’s
Reservation Services
.
Hendersonville, TN and Wichita, KS – January 27, 2005 - InnLink announces the signing and activation of reservation services for Value Place, industry veteran Jack DeBoer’s new and unique approach to extended-stay lodging. Built as a hotel and apartment hybrid, and dubbed “short-term residential lodging”, Value Place benefits franchisees and residents alike by incorporating lower start-up and operating costs along with clean, safe, and low-cost accommodations for weekly or longer stays.

Having founded the Residence Inn, Summerfield Suites, and Candlewood Suites brands, Jack DeBoer’s most recent venture fills an untapped lodging niche and targets the temporary and short-term lodging market.  Amenities include linens and towels, cable TV, and bi-weekly housekeeping.  Residents may purchase additional items such as dishes, cookware, utensils and high-speed Internet access.  With more than 20 Value Place properties already open or under development throughout the United States, the brand is on track to exceed expectations and create a win-win for the lodging industry and franchisees alike.

“InnLink’s reputation for providing its customers with reliable and dedicated reservation services was a key factor in choosing a reservation service provider.  InnLink’s call center operation is remarkable and we’ve found their staff to be flexible to the needs of a growing company”, says Value Place president, David Redfern.

Michael Young, InnLink’s president, says, “Value Place has a cutting edge style and presence in the lodging industry and matches perfectly with our staff’s energy and focus.  We look forward to many years of growth and service to Value Place, and are dedicated to the brand’s growth and performance.”

InnLink, based in Hendersonville, TN, provides an array of reservation, marketing, and revenue generation and yield programs to hotels and hotel companies.  Value Place has chosen vLINK and eLINK, InnLink’s voice and electronic reservation services.  In addition, RESmatrix, InnLink’s graphical, Internet-based inventory, rate, revenue, and data management tool provides Value Place management and franchisees with unparalleled access to chain and property reports, data integration, and reservation management tools.
