[New York: 23 April 2024]Mews, the industry-leading hospitality cloud and winner of Best property management system at the HotelTechAwards 2024, has been chosen by Weekender to power their portfolio of hotels across the northeast of the US. 

Weekender, whose vision is to inspire travelers to adventure into the great outdoors, currently operates ten hotels with a strong pipeline to expand its portfolio over the coming years. The brand plans to complete up to 5 new acquisitions and renovations in 2024, and a similar number in 2025. Weekender will roll out Mews Hospitality Cloud in every property. 

“Since our first meeting with Mews, it was obvious that they are a well-run, well-funded company,” said Keir Weimer, CEO and Founder at Weekender. “We’ve been so impressed by the team’s knowledge and passion for how the right technology can empower us to scale while keeping our guests at the heart of operations.” 

Weekender is both the owner and operator of their hotels, allowing them to create a close relationship with guests and carefully manage their experience from start to finish. This requires an integrated and intentional approach to technology to support and enhance that journey, and this shared guest-first philosophy was a key driver in choosing Mews. 

Open APIs allow Weekender to build and integrate technology that supports their unique vision of hospitality, while the stability and flexibility of the platform gave the team confidence that they can scale predictably and efficiently. With plans to acquire new properties, Weekender will leverage Mews Multi-Property to support the group’s growth trajectory. 

It was also hugely important for Weekender to easily connect to their key technology partners. Mews Marketplace provides robust, complimentary integrations to over 1,000 leading hospitality software providers, and the team was able to easily integrate with the likes of Amadeus’ iHotelier CRS and Duetto’s RMS.  

“Weekender embodies the perfect marriage of technology and experiential travel,” said Richard Valtr, Mews Founder. “Features like keyless check-in help immerse the guests in their stay, empowering them to explore and be curious rather than waste time with hotel administration. I’ve been so impressed by their growth, and I can’t wait to see what we can achieve together.”
