Leonardo Worldwide Powers Hotel Media Display on WeeklyHotels.com

Toronto, CANADA and New York, NY – June 8th, 2016 – Leonardo Worldwide, a technology company that is making travel suppliers more successful with software solutions that reach, engage, convert and satisfy online travel shoppers, is now powering multi-media experiences on WeeklyHotels.com.

WeeklyHotels.com launched in 2013 as a hotel booking website for travelers seeking hotels that offer weekly rates and/or kitchenettes in their rooms. Through many years of hotel ownership, the founders knew that there was an opportunity to match travelers with hotels that meet their longer stay needs. They also knew that enabling these travelers to explore the listed hotels through large, high-resolution hotel media would help drive better website performance and more bookings on WeeklyHotels.com.

When searching for a solution to display multi-media for its weekly hotels and hotels with kitchenettes, WeeklyHotels.com discovered Leonardo’s MediaConnect Complete solution, which provides travel suppliers a turnkey solution for access to and display of hotel visual content.

WeeklyHotels.com now has direct connectivity to Leonardo’s database of certified hotel images and rich media through Multi-Media Display Galleries installed as a widget on the website using simple javascript.

With Leonardo’s leading multi-media display technology seamlessly integrated with the WeeklyHotels.com website, visitors can count on rich, immersive, engaging visual experiences when browsing hotels on any screen or device. As a result, WeeklyHotels.com benefits from increased engagement levels and improved conversion.

What this means to hotel properties and chains
Hotel properties that are listed on WeeklyHotels.com and subscribe to Vizlly Multi-Channel or DMS+, Leonardo’s Multi-Channel Digital Marketing System also benefit by having the digital brochures they create using Vizlly presented to travel shoppers on WeeklyHotels.com, resulting in:

  • Increased engagement with travel shoppers through curated stories with images, rich media and descriptive text displayed in topic-based categories.
  • Improved relevance and resonance with WeeklyHotels.com customers through targeted stories.
  • Significant influence on booking decisions with visual content that makes the property stand out and communicates its true value.
  • Further amplification of stories through social sharing icons prominently displayed for top social media sites.

Hotel chains that subscribe to Leonardo’s VScape Digital Asset Management System can continue to use VScape to manage their media on WeeklyHotels.com. With direct connectivity between Leonardo’s display technology and VScape, these chains benefit from updates made to images in VScape being visible on WeeklyHotels.com in near real-time.

“When guests are seeking accommodations for longer trips, being able to see what their room will really be like before they book is absolutely crucial. With Leonardo’s technology, quality and extensive hotel media, we’re able to offer our customers visual information that makes it easier for them to evaluate and select the right hotel for their stay. We believe this is a big factor in our success,” says Sunny Patel, CEO, WeeklyHotels.com.

“Our goal is to make travel suppliers more successful and WeeklyHotels.com is an example of how we’re doing that. With the best, most innovative technology powering their hotel media, we’re confident they’ll see impressive results in terms of time on page and booking conversions,” says John McAuliffe, President, Leonardo.
