The Challenge

Best Western Gateway Grand is a hotel and conference center located in Gainesville, Florida. The hotel is located near the University of Florida along with many natural and historical attractions. In addition to offering updated amenities including free Wi-Fi, complimentary breakfast and a outdoor pool, the hotel also features meeting and event space. Like many hotels, the Best Western Gateway Grand had turned to online travel agencies (OTAs) to help fill unsold hotel rooms. Unfortunately, OTAs charge high commission rates, taking a share of the hotel’s revenue. Best Western Gateway Grand was seeking a solution that would increase occupancy without the high cost of OTA fees.

The Solution

Best Western Gateway Grand turned to Travel Media Group to help them be found and get chosen by travelers. Through a strategy of online and print advertising on HotelCoupons.com, Travel Media Group helped the hotel reach more travelers. For the past 5 years, Best Western Gateway Grand has advertised in the HotelCoupons.com Florida guide, reaching over 2 million travelers annually. The hotel uses a two-space ad in the guide to attract more last-minute guests. The hotel also has a premium listing on HotelCoupons.com and exposure on the HotelCoupons app. This mix of online and print advertising has provided at least two leads per day for Best Western Gateway Grand.
