News for the Hospitality Executive
[New York, NY – May 17, 2013] Today, innRoad welcomes Engage Hospitality to its growing list of hotel management partners. After years of looking for a fitting software strategy, Engage Hospitality has identified innRoad as an ideal partner and will subscribe four hotels and 397 rooms under the Personality Hotels brand to the innRoad cloud-based solution effective immediately.
innRoad will integrate operational analytics and reporting across four San Francisco Engage Hospitality properties: Hotel Union Square, Kensington Park Hotel, Steinhart Hotel, Hotel Diva.

“For Engage Hospitality, innRoad was a wise choice to increase profits and efficiency,” said David Chin, Chief Operating Officer of Engage Hospitality. “We carefully evaluated many platforms, and were attracted to innRoad’s stability, support and reporting ability for all our properties!”
Of the partnership with innRoad, Stuart Harless, Director of Revenue and Reservations at Engage Hospitality says,
“innRoad bridges the gap between market conditions, demand and automation. We know this works for our guests, and that makes it work for us. Add integration across multiple hotels, a call center with live availability, free web bookings and a mobile solution, and it’s a win-win for Engage Hospitality. On a personal level I find the innRoad staff and customer service way above par and enjoyable to work with. I like this team!”CEO & President Yvonne Lembi-Detert adds, “If you want to see Stuart excited about something, just ask him about innRoad!”
Speaking for innRoad, Matt Neff, Executive Director of Sales for North America, says,

Our cloud based hotel distribution and management platform is the perfect tool to increase operational efficiency in this group of hotels. Not only will the company gain wider, easier, more simplified distribution, but also multi-hotel integration and reporting that has been missing before innRoad. We’re happy to further simplify the formula for success that Engage Hospitality is becoming increasingly known for.”
