Preferred Hotels & Resorts will now endorse Amadeus’ business intelligence and sales and catering solutions to member properties globally, providing access to industry-leading technologies as well as forward-looking data on average daily rate (ADR), bookings, and aggregated competitive insights that inform growth strategy.
Expansive and up-to-date data insights are essential to informing strategic decision-making for hoteliers, particularly as customer booking patterns and priorities shifted during the pandemic. Following a long period of uncertainty among travelers, it is more important than ever for hoteliers to meet new demand and expectations, a task made easier when equipped with the data and technology to do so effectively.
This is why Preferred Hotels & Resorts, with a portfolio of more than 650 hotels, resorts, and residences across 80 countries, is expanding its technology partnership with Amadeus. The independent hotel brand has issued an endorsement for Demand360®, Agency360+®, and Sales & Catering solutions, with additional recommendations for Amadeus’ Global Distribution System (GDS), Guest Management, and Service Optimization solutions.

With a supporting suite of solutions, including sales and catering to streamline event management, hoteliers are empowered to make strategic decisions while improving operations and delivering a positive guest experience.”
