iResponze Partners with Hotels to Engage Guests Online
iResponze® partners with hotels to engage social butterflies and influence decision makers online. This collaboration allows hotel staff to focus on what they do best – deliver exceptional guest experiences.
iResponze® just completed a year-long pilot program with Marriott International. We are pleased to announce that due to the successful outcome, we are now a proven provider poised to expand our partnership with other Marriott International and branded hotels. The value of iResponze services was demonstrated to hotel staff as well as ownership interests.
Consistent feedback from hotel leadership regarding iResponze services pointed to:
• allowing hotel staff to remain attentive to guests real-time
• responses that were genuine, timely, and in compliance with Marriott brand standards
• an affordable solution to leverage guest reviews and engagement while keeping the GM involved
The pilot hotels expressed absolute confidence in iResponze’s ability to respond on their behalf, and we invite you to learn more about the findings by scheduling a free consultation.
Online Reputation Directly Affects Pricing Power, Occupancy & RevPAR
If a hotel increases its review scores by 1 point on a 5-point scale (e.g., from 3.3 to 4.3), the hotel can increase its price by 11.2 percent and still maintain the same occupancy or market share.
A 1 point increase in a hotel’s Global Review Index™ can lead to an increase of up to 1.42% in RevPAR.
+0.54% in Occupancy**
+0.89% in ADR**
+1.42% in RevPar**

We're not usually ones to brag, BUT...since you asked...
"My experience with iResponze has been great! I understand the importance of responding to TripAdvisor and other social media reviews, but it can be a time-consuming and sometimes delicate situation. At first I was uneasy about how those delicate situations would be handled without my direct input. iResponze has done a great job answering even the most difficult reviews, and in the same tone of voice I would use. I totally trust the iResponze team to handle my social media interactions which allows me more time to focus on other areas of my business and peace of mind knowing that I am covered on the social media front."
