Advantage Reserve for Its Reservations & Revenue Management
Key West, Florida – April 13, 2009 – Distinguished International® Hotels, Residences and Resorts is pleased to announce that it has retained the reservations and revenue management services of Advantage Reserve, LLC for its collection of hotel properties.
As the economy forces most sectors to adjust their business strategies, Distinguished® International’s marketing model continues to enjoy positive reception from independently owned boutique hotels with the recent addition of a hotel in Ireland and a dozen more applications currently under revision.
With the projected rate of solid growth, Distinguished® wanted to provide a value-added component to its marketing services by securing the services of Advantage Reserve.
More specifically, Advantage Reserve is handling the reservation calls 24 hours a day/365 days a year for the 466 rooms of Distinguished® International’s seven (7) member hotel properties. This toll-free pay-for-performance private label service allows guests to speak directly to a professionally trained hotel reservationist at all times. Reservation agents are fully knowledgeable on each property and available to answer questions, explain special promotions and packages, and place reservations.
Advantage Reserve interfaces directly with the Distinguished® booking engine and relays the reservations back to the member hotels in real-time. Advantage Reserve also monitors room rates in all currencies and geographical market sectors, in order to assure that Distinguished® maintains the lowest available published rates on the market for its luxury properties.
"Travelers today are far more careful on where and how they are spending their money," Robert Wilson, CHA, President of Advantage Reserve, "They want to make sure they are receiving real value. Our voice reservations service has never been more solicited. I am very pleased at the opportunity to work with Distinguished® Hotels and strongly believe that their member hotels, which are the independent boutique hotels we particularly cater to, will benefit from our reservations support center."
"The core of who we are, » explains Bill Burruss, President of Distinguished® International Hotels, Residences and Resorts, " lies in the personable service that has made the success and notoriety of each hotel member we represent. The voice reservations call service offered by Robert Wilson and his team at Advantage Reserve, is the perfect extension of that type of one-on-one service. They are knowledgeable, extremely professional and with their impressive conversion rate record, I look forward to a growing partnership and years of success for both companies."
