“We see our full site launch today as the first step in building relationships with travelers who can use Room Key’s newly developed tools to elevate the hotel shopping experience from one of uncertainty to one that’s a simple, social solution,” said John F. Davis III, chief executive officer at Room Key, in an announcement. “With website traffic reaching nearly two million visitors per month in our first 90 days, we’re thrilled with the consumer response to Room Key and will continue to expand our offerings as part of our ongoing commitment to helping travelers search, book and relax.”
In addition to comprehensive hotel descriptions and relevant pricing information, Room Key now offers a shortlist feature that enables consumers to compare properties across multiple locations, share their top picks, and collaborate with family and friends via email, Facebook, and Twitter. Room Key has also added consumer reviews to its hotel properties.
Room Key has been met with a strong reception from the hospitality industry as well, since it enables travelers to book directly with the hotels. With the announcement of new direct connect hotel partners Best Western, Loews Hotels, Preferred Hotel Group, and World Hotels, each of which will be live on the site in the coming months, Room Key has expanded both economy and luxury offerings. Additionally, consumers will soon be able to book directly with multiple, independent hotels and hotel chains through new partnerships with Sabre Hospitality Solutions, TravelClick, and Trust International.
