Hotels Close to the Runway, but Far from Stress
A great New York Times article today discusses the evolution of the airport hotel. Some of our most successful eStandby Upgrade partner properties are mentioned.
In fact, we were happy to see the Hyatt Regency Orlando Airport included in the article. This hotel under the guidance of Revenue Manager, Donald Hood, added two virtual room types, High Floor and Runway View, through eStandby which generated an additional $22,000 in bottom-line profit for the property in 2011. Their commitment to awarding upgrades in advance, reviewing SmartQ daily for best revenue opportunities, and one-step-up-upgrading yielded a 79% Revenue Realization Rate last year.
