Airbnb Launches Global Hotel Technology Partnership to Support Boutique Hotels, Bed and Breakfasts
Airbnb launched its first global hotel technology partnership with SiteMinder, a cloud platform for hotels used to attract and book guests across the globe. Under the new partnership, traditional hospitality businesses that use SiteMinder and meet Airbnb’s hospitality standards can quickly and seamlessly list rooms on the platform. The new technology developed jointly by the two companies will now make it possible for hotels to connect booking information to their existing management system in real-time.
“Small hotels and B&Bs have long used Airbnb and now we’re building new tools and partnerships to help these local businesses thrive,” says Cameron Houser, Airbnb’s Program Manager for Hotels. “We are dedicated to working with small hospitality businesses that excel at offering the best guest experiences and living our mission of belonging and we couldn’t ask for a better partner than SiteMinder.”
SiteMinder’s more than 28,000 clients include leading boutique hotels, hotel ownership groups, and many other hospitality providers globally. Guests can expect the locally-influenced and unique accommodations they expect when booking an Airbnb listing.
