Multiple rates and upselling at booking


Absalon Hotel Group needed a booking engine for each of their distinct properties that would drive conversions and offer a number of rates.


Mews Booking Engine has a simple, clean user journey that makes it easy for guests to make a reservation. At the booking stage, Absalon can upsell products like breakfasts and promote sustainability through a ‘Go green’ option that skips housekeeping. The reservations team can upload multiple rates for each room type, including ‘risk free’ fully flexible rates.


• 6.7% booking engine conversion rate at Annex Copenhagen (double the industry average)
• 5.5% booking engine conversion rate at Absalon Hotel
• 28% higher occupancy in 2022 compared to 2021

Payments at multiple touchpoints


In order to maximize revenue, it should be easy for guests to pay – and for staff to process payments – throughout the guest journey.


When guests book via Mews Booking Engine, they can pay quickly and securely once they have selected their rooms, rates and any add-ons. Payment can also be taken onsite during their stay, as well as during online check-out where, for instance, the guest can select any extras they purchased at the bar. Once the guest has left, if there are charges remaining, Absalon staff can submit payment requests via email in just one click.


• 0.02% chargeback rate
• 81% payment request success rate
