Parkhotel Adler, a luxury hotel located in the heart of the German Black Forest, experienced one of the best problems any hotelier can face over the last Christmas season: 100% hotel occupancy, yet a lot of additional demand from potential guests who would like to stay at the hotel.
Why it matters: The hotel team quickly identified that due to no availability showing in the hotel’s booking engine for search dates over Christmas, many visitors would leave the website disappointed without coming back. Parkhotel Adler needed a solution to capture potential guest information to communicate with and convert their website visitors for future dates.
  • Thanks to their partnership with The Hotels Network (THN), Parkhotel Adler found an easy and effective solution: Form Builder.

Top 3 Core Objectives: The hotel team was looking for an effective way to elevate the online guest experience and engage with visitors before abandoning the website due to the lack of availability.
  • Identify guests: Parkhotel Adler created a customized website form to capture visitor information, displayed on the hotel’s booking engine and targeted only to visitors searching for dates when the hotel is sold out.

  • Capture their contact information: Form requests were sent straight to the reservation team, capturing a significant part of the demand of guests that would otherwise have to find an alternative for their Christmas stay.

  • Generate future bookings: The reservation team contacted potential guests to keep them informed on availability updates, e.g. based on cancellations, or to help them with organizing a stay for different dates in the future.
