Connor Langton, Corporate Director, Revenue Management, for Refined Hospitality, talks about the exceptional service he received from SHR’s corporate office in Houston, Texas, even though the city was crippled by a 100-year winter, snowstorm.

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

Our clients don’t depend on antiquated hotel reservation software rather a 2nd-generation, fully customizable central reservation system and hotel booking software, unparalleled in the industry.
