Booking Engine Services
Hendersonville, TN and N. Vernon, IN – InnLink, an industry leader in hotel reservation representation services and marketing programs for hotel chains, franchise hotel companies, and independent hotels announces the signing and service activation of 19 Lees Inns of America hotels ( ).

Based in southern Indiana, Lees Inns of America was founded in 1974 by Mr. Lester Lee. Since then, Lees Inns has grown to encompass and represent the highest standards of lodging and guest service within a multi-state area.  Lees Inns will utilize InnLink’s voice reservation services, seamless GDS connectivity, integrated Internet travel website reservation access, and proprietary Booking Engine for consumer-initiated reservations. In addition, InnLink’s powerful CMS (Customer Management System) will provide Lees Inns with an online, browser-based graphic tool to manage inventory, rates, length of stay controls, multi-property and chain reporting, and a host of additional functions.

Lees Inns’ unique hospitality concept provides guests with larger-than-average rooms, a wide variety of business and leisure service offerings, and a Silver Service Hot Breakfast at most locations. 

According to Mike Collier, V P of Lees Inn Management Company … “Lees Inns continues to focus on providing excellent service and a positive guest experience at an affordable rate.  When we choose to utilize services outside of our core competencies, we pursue the top company in that outsourced specialization to ensure that our standards remain high. In this case, the top company in the Reservations Industry is InnLink, and we remain confident that they will live up to their excellent reputation in representing all of Lees Inns’ needs for Reservations.”

Mike Young, president of InnLink, says, “We are very proud to associate with and be of service to Lees Inns.  InnLink works diligently to provide a tight, cohesive, and cooperative customer environment – one in which our clients and staff succeed.  The blending of our core service offerings and ancillary programs with Lees Inns’ professional staff and proactive partnership will no doubt be a winner for both of our companies.”

All services transitioned to InnLink during late October, 2003.
