Airbnb has launched its global hotel technology partnership with SiteMinder, a leading cloud 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. 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 is the industry leader and we look forward to continuing to work together to support boutique hotels and bed and breakfasts around the world,”said Cameron Houser, Airbnb’s Program Manager for Hotels.
SiteMinder’s more than 28,000 clients include leading boutique hotels, hotel ownership groups, and many other hospitality providers globally. Guests can expect the locally-influenced and unique accommodations they expect when booking an Airbnb listing.
