Omni Hotels & Resorts and Groups360 Expand Instant Group Booking Technology
All Omni properties will now offer the ability to book group room blocks directly online through GroupSync
DALLAS, TX (Dec. 5, 2023) – Omni Hotels & Resorts and Groups360 today announced the expansion of GroupSync Instant Booking, the ability to book hotels for small group blocks, at all Omni properties in the United States and Canada. Through GroupSync, event organizers can now secure group guest rooms directly online, further streamlining an often complex RFP-based group booking process.
For Omni Hotels & Resorts, Instant Booking provides group travel organizers and planners a faster, more convenient method to book 10-25 guest rooms in a single online transaction without contacting a property directly. These simpler group transactions will help both planners and Omni’s sales teams become more efficient through automation and direct data integration needed to provide real-time group rates and room availability.
“We take great pride in being leaders and innovators in the meetings and events industry, so we are excited to now offer GroupSync technology across all of our properties,” said Dan Surette, chief sales officer at Omni Hotels & Resorts. “Our goal is to always provide a seamless experience for group business, and the ability to self-serve for smaller room blocks is an important option to offer planners. Our partnership with Groups360 allows us to continue to focus on what matters most to our guests, as we further elevate our brand’s offerings.”
GroupSync, Groups360’s flagship solution for booking group room blocks and meeting space at over 200,000 properties worldwide, is radically improving the way hotels are booked online. Its total number of guest rooms available for instant booking exceeds 1.7 million worldwide, with more inventory planned for the upcoming year. By providing greater transparency for group rates and availability, a faster booking process and intuitive technology, GroupSync is quickly becoming the preferred hotel booking solution for groups, meetings and events.
“Omni is a leader among the meetings-focused hotel brands and they truly understand the value that GroupSync’s Instant Booking and Smart RFP can bring to their customers. This expansion is concrete evidence of our shared philosophy of making group travel simpler,” said Kemp Gallineau, CEO, Groups360. “We’re excited to see how this partnership will impact meeting and event planners by making hotel sourcing faster and easier, as well as the efficiencies this will bring to Omni’s sales organization.”
