3x industry standard booking conversion

 

Challenge

Although OTAs are helpful for increasing customer reach, they charge high amounts of commission. This makes direct bookings a much more favorable booking channel.

 

Solution

The Incline Lodge uses Mews Booking Engine to manage and maximize direct booking conversions. Thanks to a clear and fast guest journey, guests can reserve rooms in only a few clicks. Each room type has been configured with specific photos and descriptions so that guests know exactly what to expect.

 

Result

• 10.3% booking engine conversion rate (average for independent hotels is 3.3%)
• 35% higher RevPAR for booking engine bookings compared to OTAs

One in four guests check in online

 

Challenge

Guest expectations are changing, with many now preferring to check themselves in to the hotel ahead of time to cut onsite admin.

 

Solution

Online check-in is part of Mews Guest Journey. Any time before arrival, Incline Lodge guests can check themselves in via an online portal accessible from any device with internet. This means that when guests arrive, they can be shown straight to their room, while it also provides more opportunities for upselling and engagement during the check-in. Upon reopening after their renovation, Incline Lodge guests will also have the opportunity for a contactless check-in thanks to complimentary integrations with smart lock door code systems, which communicate seamlessly with Mews.

 

Result

• 25% online check-in rate
• 8% higher ADR for guests who check in online

Every payment is fast and secure

 

Challenge

Taking and processing payments shouldn’t be something that any property – or guest – has to worry about.

 

Solution

Payment automation through Mews Payments eliminates manual errors and frees the Parkside Inn team from repetitive card data entry. One-click payments are convenient for guests, who can rest easy knowing that all details are fully tokenized and compliant with all regulations like PCI DSS and P2D2.

 

Result

• 99% of all payments processed through Mews Payments
• 0.05% chargeback rate

Google Hotel Search

The Incline Lodge uses Mews direct integration with Google Hotel Search, allowing them to specify which rates and rooms they’d like to distribute via Google. These rates are then featured when a customer searches for the hotel or nearby hotels on Google, linking through to the booking engine directly to drive more direct bookings.

QuickBooks

QuickBooks is a leading accounting solution. With this integration, The Incline Lodge finance team can maintain an organized workflow with the seamless and automatic transfer of financial data from Mews into the QuickBooks platform. This makes invoicing, posting journals and revenue insight faster and simpler.
