Testimonials

At SHR, we pride ourselves on not just being a vendor, but a real partner to you in your hotel business. See what some of our clients are saying about their experiences.

“So many of the larger CRS companies today were born out of a systems-based mentality, so if the system is up, they’re happy. SHR is a hotelier-based at its heart, which means they aren’t happy until we are.

“With Windsurfer’s varied reporting, we can do things across the entire chain now very quickly, and still see each individual hotel. I make one change, and it’s done for all.”

— Chuck Valentino, VP of Operations, Vagabond Inn

“I highly recommend SHR — the best in the industry!”

— Gregory Mount, President & CEO, Red Lion Hotel Group
