A one-stop integration app store


Cresta Palace is a full-service property with a variety of offerings for guests, and managing the various tools and software can be time-consuming.


Mews Marketplace is the hospitality’s biggest app store, with over 600 integrations for properties to connect with. Many providers are plug-and-play, meaning the Cresta Palace team can start using new integrations immediately, and billing is simple because all fees are rolled into a single payment.


• 17 connected integrations
• Zero connection fees
