SAN FRANCISCO — Airbnb has launched a global hotel-technology partnership with SiteMinder — a cloud-based platform for hotels to attract and book guests across the globe.
Under the partnership, traditional hospitality businesses that use SiteMinder and meet Airbnb’s hospitality standards can list rooms on the platform. The new technology, developed jointly by the two companies, will now make it possible for hotels to connect booking information to their existing management system in real-time.
“Small hotels and B&Bs have long used Airbnb and now we’re building new tools and partnerships to help these local businesses thrive,” says Cameron Houser, Airbnb’s program manager for Hotels. “We are dedicated to working with small hospitality businesses that excel at offering the best guest experiences and living our mission of belonging, and we couldn’t ask for a better partner than SiteMinder.”
SiteMinder’s more than 28,000 clients include leading boutique hotels, hotel ownership groups and many other hospitality providers globally.
