Hotel Amicizia improves room management with SiteMinder

Verified case study Hotel Tech Report has reached out to hoteliers at Hotel Amicizia to verify this case study.
Hotel Amicizia is in Rimini, the town synonymous for fun and located on the Italian Adriatic Riviera. It is also the birthplace of Fellini, the unforgotten movie director and screenwriter, known worldwide for La Dolce Vita. Hotel Amicizia is a family-run 3-star hotel with 30 rooms and was completely renovated in 2017.
Why it matters: "The hotel industry has changed over the years and technology has become more and more relevant. Customs have also changed: “With an increased offer of flights for all budgets and online sales, we have more international guests and business tourists as well,” said Gianluca Piemonte, Revenue Manager at Hotel Amicizia."
  • “To us, it is crucial to keep up with the times, that is why we aim to be constantly up to date to better respond to market demands.”

Top 3 Core Objectives: "SiteMinder Channel Manager: the solution to manage all channels. Hotel Amicizia was looking for a stable and reliable solution to manage the various channels quickly and easily, including an all-inclusive fee (so that they were able to immediately recognise the investment required)."
  • Scale and efficiency: With more time available, and the automation of routine procedures related to room management, every day tasks are easier and more enjoyable. This allows the hotel team to concentrate on the guests’ needs.
