Winners of the 2019 Hotel Tech Awards Announced

Thousands of Top Hoteliers Across More Than 150 Countries Voted to Determine the Best Products for Hoteliers to Grow Their Business in 2019

USA , Los Angeles , California. February 04, 2019

The HotelTechAwards (produced by Hotel Tech Report ) announced the year's top rated hotel technology companies and products based on more than 20,000 hotelier ratings and data-points.

During the HotelTechAwards thousands of hoteliers leave honest reviews of vendor partners across the hotel tech stack. This data is used to identify the best companies based on the judges that matter most - customers.

The competition spans core areas of hotel technology: marketing, revenue, operations and guest experience. 2019 Voting included participation from major hotel groups including: Four Seasons, Movenpick, Hilton, Marriott, Kerry Hotels, Auberge Resorts, Best Western, Accor Hotels, Rosewood and dozens more.

"We're seeing unprecedented disruptive forces impacting the hotel industry today and technology is our only line of defense. Hotels that operate the same way they did even 5 years ago are quickly becoming the fallout of these tectonic shifts," says Jordan Hollander, CEO of Hotel Tech Report.

"The gig economy has brought immense recruiting challenges for hotels, the sharing economy has created similar threats from a competitive perspective and that's not even scratching the surface. Adding fuel to the fire, experts are predicting extremely challenging economic conditions in 2019-2020 - this is the perfect storm. The HotelTechAwards identify the best companies to help hoteliers weather the storm through everything from time saving automation to pricing optimization. Great technology solutions can help hotels bring in more business, operate more efficiently and adapt in a rapidly evolving market."

The HotelTechAwards are often referred to as "the Oscars of Hotel Tech" and winners were selected from more than 180 of the top technology products around the world. The HotelTechAwards are the industry's only data driven awards platform with winners determined not by a handful of judges but by a global community comprised from thousands of verified hotel technology users across more than 120 countries.

Eco-Friendly Practices: Corporate Social Responsibility

The hotel industry has undertaken a long-term effort to build more responsible and socially conscious businesses. What began with small efforts to reduce waste - such as paperless checkouts and refillable soap dispensers - has evolved into an international movement toward implementing sustainable development practices. In addition to establishing themselves as good corporate citizens, adopting eco-friendly practices is sound business for hotels. According to a recent report from Deloitte, 95% of business travelers believe the hotel industry should be undertaking “green” initiatives, and Millennials are twice as likely to support brands with strong management of environmental and social issues. Given these conclusions, hotels are continuing to innovate in the areas of environmental sustainability. For example, one leading hotel chain has designed special elevators that collect kinetic energy from the moving lift and in the process, they have reduced their energy consumption by 50%  over conventional elevators. Also, they installed an advanced air conditioning system which employs a magnetic mechanical system that makes them more energy efficient. Other hotels are installing Intelligent Building Systems which monitor and control temperatures in rooms, common areas and swimming pools, as well as ventilation and cold water systems. Some hotels are installing Electric Vehicle charging stations, planting rooftop gardens, implementing stringent recycling programs, and insisting on the use of biodegradable materials. Another trend is the creation of Green Teams within a hotel's operation that are tasked to implement earth-friendly practices and manage budgets for green projects. Some hotels have even gone so far as to curtail or eliminate room service, believing that keeping the kitchen open 24/7 isn't terribly sustainable. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to integrate sustainable practices into their operations and how they are benefiting from them.
