Atlanta’s trendy Artmore Hotel has joined Utell® Hotels & Resorts to attract global travelers and travel buyers through international representation and marketing.

The recently renovated boutique hotel has also chosen Pegasus Solutions® for Global Commission Processing, private label voice services and NetBooker NG internet booking engine for use on both the Artmore’s Web and mobile sites.

An architectural landmark situated in Atlanta’s Midtown Cultural Arts District, the Artmore has recently been renovated from its original incarnation as luxury apartments built in 1924. Today, it offers modern guest rooms and suites that cater to both business and leisure guests. The Artmore is ranked as one of the top Atlanta hotels on TripAdvisor, which Michael Halpner, general manager of the Artmore Hotel, believes will be a message that more international guests will now be responding to as well.

“Our entire team at the Artmore is excited about our new partnership with Utell Hotels & Resorts,” said Halpner. “We’re confident this alliance will broaden our reach and expose us to new opportunities. We look forward to further delighting our guests by placing ourselves in the company of Utell’s renowned properties.”

The Artmore now has access to Utell’s extensive range of business solutions, which include securing reservations through Utell’s global preferred partnerships and programs with international travel management companies (TMCs), online distributors and global corporate markets. The hotel will also be available through the global distribution systems (GDSs) under Utell’s chain code “UI,” and at the dedicated travel agent Web site www.UtellAgent.com.

Shivon Stewart, director of sales and marketing added, “Utell provides a vital link to increasing our existing sales, marketing and distribution programs that will deliver higher revenues by expanding our audiences, both domestically and internationally. In addition, Utell’s strengths in GDS and corporate travel will provide new opportunities and business partnerships for the Artmore Hotel.”

NetBooker NG provides the Artmore the functionality of a private-label site without the responsibilities and overhead of in-house Web site design, development and hosting. It combines a proven advanced booking engine with integrated Web marketing services, allowing hotels to create both online and mobile sites customized according to the property or brand.

Pegasus private label voice services offers hotels professionally trained and sales-focused support in 11 languages for 40 countries. With hub reservations centers in South America, Europe and Asia-Pacific, Pegasus voice services allow hotels to capture valuable international bookings.

Pegasus Global Commission Processing for the Artmore will offer agents weekly commission payments via check or direct deposit in any of 37 currencies. As the preferred commission payment provider for more than 60,000 travel agencies worldwide, Pegasus processes more than $500 million in commissions annually, serving more than 35,000 properties, as well as the majority of travel distributors in more than 200 countries.

“The Artmore is committed to creating an unforgettable guest experience and we are dedicated to making that experience available to the widest possible audience,” added Ric Leutwyler, president of Utell Hotels & Resorts and chief operating officer of Pegasus Solutions. “We’re honored to partner with the Artmore to create global demand for the superlative product the Artmore so eloquently delivers.”
