Irish group The Talbot Collection chooses HotelREZ representation
Ireland-based The Talbot Collection is the latest hotel group to join HotelREZ Hotels & Resorts (HotelREZ) for GDS representation. The five 4-star properties are now represented under the HO chain code on the GDS and will benefit from HotelREZ's unique global sales programme.
The properties have recently undergone significant refurbishment; each one now boasts a four-star rating, and a slew of new facilities, including high-tech meeting rooms and conference facilities. Particular developments include The Ellis Collection suites at the Oriel House Hotel, and the Oyster Lane Restaurant at Talbot Hotel Wexford, which has reopened after a €400,000 renovation. In addition, the hotels' gyms have been rebranded as Talbot Fitness, each equipped with excellent facilities for both hotel guests and locals.
Catt McLeod, Director of Strategic Partnerships at HotelREZ, said:
We are delighted to have been chosen to represent The Talbot Collection as the group continues to grow and invest in their portfolio. The Collection is truly ideal for both leisure and corporate guests, and HotelREZ is committed to helping the hotels achieve their potential. By working with our trade partners in a way that is supportive to all our members, we are able to offer hotels a diverse and effective distribution strategy, which is vital for success in today's competitive landscape.
Philip Gavin, Managing Director at The Talbot Hotel Group added:
As The Talbot Collection has grown, we have raised each hotel to a four-star standard, adding well-equipped meeting rooms and gym facilities. We continue to have ambitious plans for our hotels; we are continually investing and improving, and providing the very best service possible. HotelREZ matches this ambition.
Debbie Mangan, Group Revenue Manager at The Talbot Hotel Group continued:
We wanted to move all our hotels to one supplier, and in HotelREZ we have chosen a partner that not only provides the distribution technology we need, and the ability to interface with our chosen Channel Manager, Availpro, but also maximises our sales and marketing. We have been particularly impressed with HotelREZ's implementation team, whose attention to detail ensured a smooth switch process from our multiple previous suppliers.
The five The Talbot Collection properties are now available to book under the HO chain code on the Global Distribution System (GDS), online via the HotelREZ booking website and via the HotelREZ reservation call centre.
