The four-star Carlton Hotel Budapest has extended a 10-year relationship with Pegasus Solutions, signing a three-year renewal for distribution, booking, business intelligence and sales support through Pegasus Connect+ Gold. A long-standing user of Pegasus’ representation services, the Carlton Hotel Budapest will enjoy ongoing and preferred distribution through the new agreement, as well as targeted sales support for the 95-room Hungarian property.
“For the last 10 years, Pegasus has consistently delivered the solutions, services and results we need for our hotel to compete for global business,” said Julius Dauber, owner of the Carlton Hotel Budapest. “Boutique hotels like ours are challenged to compete with big chains for a set population of travelers visiting worldwide destinations like Budapest. However, by saturating global and online distribution channels with information about our hotel, and leveraging Pegasus sales support to reach travel buyers and consortia, we’ve never failed to attract the business we need.”
Located in Budapest’s castle quarter, the Carlton Hotel Budapest offers affordable luxury with upscale amenities. A short walk from the infamous chain bridge, shops, restaurants and tourist attractions, the hotel combines the unique charm of Hungary with the sophisticated life of a contemporary cosmopolitan city.
“The Carlton Hotel is a fine example of how hotels can leverage Pegasus services to overcome any challenges operating in crowded hospitality markets,” said Alexis Dobbelaere, senior vice president, global sales for Pegasus Solutions. “The Carlton has not only committed to foundational distribution through Pegasus Connect+, but has taken the important step of augmenting these services with distribution consulting and our sterling sales connections.”
With Pegasus Connect+ Gold, the Carlton Hotel Budapest receives RVNG by Pegasus Solutions, the only central reservations system built to manage selling hotel rooms in the Internet age. The hotel also maintains one connection to link to the four global distribution systems (GDSs), and more than 1,000 travel websites. Pegasus Connect+ Gold also includes PegasusView Market Performance, which delivers analysis of bookings, lead times, length of stay, average daily rates, room nights and revenue. Finally, the Carlton Hotel Budapest uses the OpenView internet booking engine to deliver the simple booking process guests prefer on a hotel site.
