Warwick International Hotels has renewed its agreement with Utell Hotels & Resorts, a service of Pegasus Solutions. Warwick International Hotels' decision to renew with Utell was based on the nearly 100 percent sales increase Warwick has experienced since first signing with Utell.

In addition to representation services, Warwick International Hotels has signed on with Pegasus to continue using the NetBooker® Internet booking engine and Pegasus' voice services. NetBooker enables Warwick International Hotels to grow its online business through its Web site, www.warwickhotels.com and the hotel group accumulates 40 percent of its revenue through the booking engine. 

Since 2003, Warwick International Hotels has seen a 65 percent increase in its reservations as a result of Utell services. Warwick International Hotels are some of the highest grossing revenue hotels on the Utell private label, with the Warwick New York producing one of the top revenues for more than two years.

"Warwick International Hotels has had a long, successful relationship with Utell,” said G. Paul LeBlanc, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Warwick International Hotels. "We have enjoyed tremendous growth as a direct result of the cooperation with Pegasus, and are confident we will reach an additional 30 percent increase in reservations volume in 2007.”

More than 30 of Warwick's 40 plus international hotels have full representation exclusively through Utell. Recently added members include the Warwick Melrose Hotel Dallas, Warwick Ibah Luxury Villas & Spa in Bali, Saturnia & International Hotel in Venice, Central Plaza in Zurich and the New Hotel of Marseille. 

"Assisting an established brand such as Warwick International Hotels with sales, marketing, revenue and distribution initiatives is a highly rewarding experience,” said Peter Fitzgerald, President of Utell Hotels & Resorts. "Warwick International Hotels is an excellent example of the success that can be achieved by taking advantage of the multiple opportunities the Utell service offers hoteliers. We look forward to our continued collaboration with Warwick to help grow their business even more in the coming years.”
