InnLink for Central Reservation Services
.
Hendersonville, Tenn. - (Nov. 27, 2006) – InnLink, LLC, a leading provider of central reservation services and technology, announces the renewal of its partnership with AmericInn International, LLC.  InnLink will continue to provide services to the AmericInn Lodging System for an additional three years.

After an extensive review of CRS providers, AmericInn chose to continue their successful relationship with InnLink. During this period InnLink has worked closely with the AmericInn corporate office and the individual properties to increase revenue and occupancy. Revenue booked through InnLink’s reservation services is up 23% as compared to last year.

The AmericInn Lodging System is one of the fastest growing limited service lodging chains in the United States with 230 locations currently open or under development.  InnLink provides AmericInn properties with contact and call center services, connectivity to the Global Distribution System and Internet Travel sites, and booking engine services imbedded within the americinn.com website. 

InnLink’s Internet-based inventory, rate, revenue, and data management tool, RESmatrix, allows management access to chain and property reports, data integration and reservation management tools that enable the AmericInn Lodging System to monitor critical reservation information and to compete proactively in the marketplace. Additional tools and service offerings include marketing opportunities, online invoicing, web-based training, competitive rate shopping and channel management.

“InnLink has provided our chain with exceptional service, a consistently higher ADR and a reservation close rate that returns higher incremental revenue. They are truly a strategic partner and an essential part of our business,” said Arnold Angeloni, Chief Executive Officer of AmericInn International, LLC.

AmericInn franchisees’ satisfaction with InnLink is evident.  According to Mike Otten, Director of Sales for InnLink, “There is no better testimonial than that of a customer’s extension of a partnership. InnLink’s relationship with AmericInn has evolved mutually, cooperatively and productively over the past three years. We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to grow it even more.”

“We are very gratified that InnLink has been selected once again by AmericInn’s management team,” says Michael Young, InnLink's President. “AmericInn is a company that continually strives for high standards in every aspect of their business. I am pleased in their confidence in our company to meet this level of expectation. We look forward to continuing to represent the AmericInn Lodging System successfully.”
