Travel Tripper Grows Transient Business at
Historic Glen Cove Mansion Hotel and Conference Center

New York (February 10, 2011) – Travel Tripper, LLC, announced today outstanding results from a recent effort to grow transient bookings at Glen Cove Mansion Hotel and Conference Center in Glen Cove, New York.  Transient reservations are up by 50% YOY since the hotel implemented the new version 2.0 of Travel Tripper’s RezTripTM booking engine on December 13, 2010, and adopted search marketing and revenue management tactics recommended by Travel Tripper.
 
According to Fred Leuthold, director of sales & marketing for Glen Cove Mansion, “Our historic hotel is a popular wedding and corporate meeting venue on Long Island, and we are increasing our marketing efforts to transient travelers.  Travel Tripper has done a great job helping us increase occupancy between events with their marketing support and RezTrip online booking engine.”
 
The all-new version 2.0 of RezTripTM is a great revenue enhancing tool for luxury hotels such as Glen Cove Mansion.  Using the online system administration tool, hoteliers can easily create special offers and packages in a few minutes.  RezTripTM offers support for unlimited hotel photos and enables hotels to sell online valuable add-ons, such as meals, in-room amenities, and spa treatments.  Guests can shop and book rooms, packages, and extras from an intuitive user interface and can share travel plans with friends and family both during and after the booking process. 
 
“Our new booking engine helped increase guest stays at Glen Cove Mansion, but our pricing advice and search marketing campaigns were just as important in driving business,” said Scott Brodows, executive vice president of Travel Tripper.  He continued, “We’re thrilled that the RezTripTM upgrade and marketing efforts of our team and those of the hotel have enabled the property to increase room nights by 28% and by 18% YOY.”
 
The RezTripTM booking engine can embed tracking code from all online optimization tools such as Adobe’s Omniture Suite and Google Analytics.  Travel Tripper’s team uses these tools to analyze and optimize online marketing campaigns for hotels in the world’s most competitive markets.  RezTripTM 2.0 is available for hotels worldwide.
