Case study header image
Central Hoteles is a Mexican hotel company operating two landmark properties in Mexico City: the 105-room Zocalo Central Mexico City and the 85-room Historico Central. The two hotels were looking to build an integrated tech stack to enable them to be more competitive in the market and boost their reputation.
Why it matters: Small, boutique hotels need to optimize every room rate. This requires strategy and tactics to ensure the best rate is achieved while also aiming for the highest occupancy.
  • Small hotels also often come with a small team, so empowering them with solutions to help optimize and automate pricing decisions can help boost revenue and drive efficiencies and team morale.

Top 3 Core Objectives: Central Hoteles was looking to move away from manually managing revenue and to adopt a revenue management system that would partner seamlessly with their PMS and channel manager to drive rates and streamline revenue management.
  • Moving from Manual: Before adopting Duetto, Central Hoteles relied on manual reporting on pick up, forecasting, and occupancy to adjust rates. Demand and comp set were measured using reports from OTA platforms such as Booking and Expedia.

  • Connecting Revenue Strategy: Today, the RMS (Duetto), PMS, and Channel Manager all work together, which is enabling the two hotels to be more competitive in the market, and has improved their reputation.
