As a premier hotel situated on Cornell University’s Ivy League campus in Ithaca, N.Y., the Statler Hotel is staffed and run by select students from Cornell’s world-renowned School of Hotel Administration.

When the distinguished property needed a new distribution solution to streamline its reservations and distribute its inventory through multiple channels, the Statler turned to Sabre Hospitality Solutions.    

“The Statler is in a unique position in that we not only strive to provide a world-class, memorable hotel experience for our guests, but we are also committed to teaching and mentoring the future leaders in the hospitality industry,” said Rick Adie, general manager of the Statler Hotel. “As we emerge from a major rooms renovation, it’s important for us to have our students work with the best-in-class products and services and Sabre Hospitality Solutions fits that bill. The booking engine and CRS stood out from the competitors in terms of functionality, flexibility and ease of use, and we are impressed by the comprehensive range of products and services they can provide.”

The Statler Hotel will use Sabre Hospitality Solutions’ SynXis Central Reservations System for seamless connectivity to all four global distribution systems, hundreds of online travel agencies and bookings coming through their own Web site through Sabre Hospitality’s Guest Connect booking engine.  The hotel will also take advantage of Guest Connect’s mobile Web site platform so that potential guests can benefit from the full functionality of the Statler’s Web site from their mobile device. Additionally, the Statler will take advantage of Sabre Hospitality Solutions’ seamless integration to its OPERA Property Management System, further ensuring more efficient operations and the carrying out of their revenue strategy through automated updates of their inventory, rates and restrictions.

“The Statler’s switch to Sabre Hospitality Solutions is another testament to the world-class value our portfolio provides premier organizations,” said David Meltzer, vice president of global business development for Sabre Hospitality Solutions. “With daily exposure to all of the many competitors in the distribution marketplace at Cornell’s School of Hotel Administration, we recognize that being chosen as the best in class in terms of distribution and marketing solutions is a huge honor. I am confident that Sabre Hospitality Solutions will be able to support the Statler in meeting its financial, operational and educational goals.”
