On January 1st, “Swiss Quality Hotels” took over official operation of the former “Top Welcome Swiss Hotels”. The first interim report shows really positive results. The new start under the new brand name saw a smooth and successful transition in all areas of operation. All of the members hotels are now fully integrated and can be booked in the various GDS systems under the GDS code UI, with the additional comment “Swiss Q Hotel”.
The “Swiss Quality Hotels” sales and marketing organisation has also been able – within this short space of time – to attract the following new members:
- Swiss Q Hotel Darioli in Zermatt – a three star hotel in the “SQ Value” category.
- Swiss Q Hotel Wittelsbacher Hof in Garmisch-Partenkirchen – a four star hotel in the “SQ Superior” category.
- Swiss Q Hotel Königshof in Cologne – a three star hotel in the “SQ Value” category.
The two hotels in Germany also represent the first step abroad. “Swiss Quality Hotels” is aiming for further expansion in Europe and has thus accordingly increased activity in this area.
Equally as successful was the launch of the newly designed website www.SwissQualityHotels.com. The clear layout and easy to use menu are particularly attractive features of the modern design. Bookings require only a few clicks of the mouse and attractive packages, special offers, seminar and conference information, highlights with seasonal information and offers as well as general news can also be easily found under the various headings.
