Hotel de la Bourse is a 120-year-old, 2-star hotel in the centre of Maastricht. There is a bustling restaurant on the ground floor, where locals mix with guests. Unlike other hotels, the wait staff manages check-in, which creates an immediate connection with the guest.
Why it matters: With a limited number of staff, the hotel needed to automate tasks that were repetitive and required too much time. Therefore it looked at adding a revenue management system to their tech stack to automate the room prices.
  • RoomPriceGenie offers hotels the benefit and peace of automation in their room price setting. The system takes the guess work and the manual uploads out of the equation, helping hotels to drive more revenue.
