Parsippany, NJ (PRWEB) February 1, 2008
Lodging Interactive, a leading provider of interactive marketing services to the hospitality, spa and restaurant industries, today announced the roll out of HotelDirectBook.com, a consumer hotel-booking portal. Through HotelDirectBook.com consumers can search for hotels and directly book with hotel supplier sites, ensuring the lowest direct rates with no additional fees.
"HotelDirectBook.com was originally created to offer a direct distribution opportunity and source of revenue for our clients. However, we were pleasantly surprised to see that many additional hotels have signed up to be represented on HotelDirectBook.com," stated DJ Vallauri, Lodging Interactive's Founder & President.
HotelDirectBook.com offers hotels incremental benefits such as:
- A direct booking channel straight into the hotel's own website
- A direct source for group RFP leads & monthly reporting
- A Google hotelMASHUP Interactive map
- A non-commission business model
- SEO benefits from inbound links into the hotel's website
HotelDirectBook.com was launched in BETA mode last June and has grown today to represent over 600 hotels. The website offers two levels of representation service which affords even the smallest of hotels the ability to participate in the program.
"HotelDirectBook.com reaffirms our commitment to develop and introduce tools and services which ultimately drive additional revenues to our clients," stated Mr. Vallauri.
