Transforming guest communication

While it is important to monitor online reputation, and to incorporate both online reviews and guest survey data to drive important changes at the property, the addition of Guest Messaging Hub 12 months ago has transformed how the brand interacts with guests both pre-stay and during their visit.

When prospective or pre-booked guests land on the website, they can connect to the live webchat which puts them directly in touch with staff. Connecting pre-arrival encourages a fluid conversation and the opportunity to discover what the guest might need, immediately providing a chance to create a human touchpoint and superior guest experience, as well as the opportunity to increase revenue.
