AccorHotels launches itself as reservation platform

Hotels
POLAND Accor, a strategic partner of Orbis, is changing its name to AccorHotels and will also provide access to its reservation system – AccorHotels.com – to independent hotels.
The initiative is a supplement of a b2b proposal prepared by FastBooking – a company acquired by Accor in April. The company will offer the service to hoteliers in June 2015 and guests will be able to use it from July 2015. “The goal is to start cooperation with over 10,000 hotels in 300 of the most important cities in the world, which means triple growth in the number of hotels offered on AccorHotels.com,” reads an announcement from Accor. Independent hotels interested in appearing on the AccorHotels.com platform alongside those of the Accor group, will be chosen on the basis of hotel criteria (e.g. the location, the number of rooms) and guests’ opinions. “The new offer guarantees transparent rules of the offer presentation, access to own clients’ data and competitive commission fees,” the company has declared.
