HOUSTON, TX, April 21, 2016– SHR, an innovative provider of advanced distribution technology and services for the hospitality industry, today announced that Vagabond Inn, a California based hotel chain, has migrated to SHR’s WindsurferCRS distribution platform.

“We look forward to this partnership with Vagabond Inn as they upgrade their distribution strategy and implement WindsurferCRS.

Vagabond Inn is synonymous with affordable and comfortable lodging and friendly service for all travelers along the West Coast.
