HotelREZ Hotels & Resorts has launched its 10th anniversary celebrations by announcing its growth to now take a spot in the top 5 hotel companies in the UK.

HotelREZ was founded in 2004 by Mark Lewis, an experienced hospitality industry professional and entrepreneur. Over the course of a decade the company has grown to be one of the leading hotel representation companies dedicated to marketing and connecting independent hotels with bookers worldwide. With an extensive portfolio of over 400 hotels in the UK, from grand country house hotels and manors to city centre business hotels and boutique hideaways, HotelREZ is now one of the 5 biggest hotel companies in the UK, on the Global Distribution Systems (GDS), used by travel agents worldwide. Hotels can be booked under the HotelREZ chain code, HO.

Mark Lewis, explains:

“When we set up HotelREZ ten years ago we did so for the lack of tailored distribution and marketing services available to help independent hotels compete in a globalised and increasingly complex marketplace. Back in 2004, the growth of online travel was rapidly changing the way that hoteliers needed to market and sell their properties, and opened up many new opportunities for hotels to grow their revenues. HotelREZ’s strength both then and now, has been in our ability to ensure hotels maintain their independence and uniqueness, whilst enabling them to compete worldwide.”

HotelREZ has a strong focus on delivering each and every hotel member with results that continue to surpass their expectations, which is why so many of the original customers from the company’s early days are still around today. Pamela Shaw, Group Revenue Manager for Hastings Hotels commented:

“HotelREZ are the epitome of professionalism and customer service – nothing is ever too much trouble! They are supportive, attentive and often highlight areas where we could improve our presentation and product to encourage financial rewards.”

On the occasion of its 10th anniversary the company has developed a marketing campaign to include two newly designed websites (one exclusively for online bookings of its hotel portfolio, www.hotelrez.co.uk), a new logo and brand name (i.e., HotelREZ Hotels and Resorts), a special promotional rate entitled the Great Sale Rate (offering bookers discounts of up to 10% on the best available rate for the remainder of 2014) as well as monthly competitions offering hotel stays across the globe for both travel agents and end consumers, and promoted across the main social media channels. See our current competition here.
