Fairfield Inn & Suites is located in the center of California’s Central Valley, just an hour away from the gigantic wonders of Sequoia National Park. A fair driving distance from the Pacific Coast, Tulare is an ideal road trip stop for families and business travelers. While Fairfield Inn & Suites offers an excellent value for travelers to the area, the hotel faces the challenge of being in a small market of closely ranked hotels. With 81% of travelers typically referencing TripAdvisor when deciding where to stay, Fairfield Inn & Suites’ lack of reviews was having a negative impact on occupancy. With just 17 total reviews on the listing, it was difficult for travelers to be confident in the guest feedback about the hotel.
The goal of beginning a reputation management program was to increase the quantity and quality of reviews on TripAdvisor. By partnering with Travel Media Group, the hotel was able to earn more positive reviews online and collect internal feedback on negative guest experiences at the hotel. Through our post-stay email program, Travel Media Group referred 540 happy guests to TripAdvisor and Google, while collecting internal feedback from 88 guests who reported a negative experience. This internal feedback system allowed Fairfield Inn & Suites to better understand guest experiences and address them without broadcasting them to future travelers online.

The new format of entering emails is very easy and we have gotten a fair amount of feedback regarding our guests’ satisfaction and their hotel stay, concerns and impressions. Based on other Social Media platforms we use, Travel Media is the easiest – especially time wise. I’m pulled in a lot of different directions and the new upgrade makes it easy to enter information.Steph Bombardieri
