Onyx CenterSource Expands Partnership With Preferred Hotels & Resorts

USA, Dallas, Texas. April 21, 2021

Onyx CenterSource, a leading global provider of B2B payments and business intelligence to the hospitality industry, today announced that it has joined the Preferred Hotels & Resorts Alliance Partner Program.

Preferred Hotels & Resorts, the world's largest provider of sales, marketing and distribution services to independent luxury hotels, has been an Onyx client for more than 10 years, having designated the Onyx CommPay service as a Preferred ProTool for its member hotels to facilitate the payment of commissions from hotels to travel agents.

"Onyx enjoys a close relationship with Preferred Hotels & Resorts, providing commission payment processing to more than 200 of the brand's member hotels," said Tony Wagner, Onyx senior vice president of commercial and strategic relationships. "This partnership is a natural extension of that relationship, and we believe that CommPay will be an asset to Preferred's member hotels as they move through travel recovery."

Wagner said Onyx solutions can help optimize financial recovery for hotels experiencing the lingering impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic through cost- and resource-efficient payment processing. "Our products scale with increases in hotel business and will continue to keep payment processing efficient and accurate once travel has fully rebounded," he said.

Since its creation, CommPay has facilitated more than $15 billion in commission payments on behalf of more than 950,000 hotels and paid more than 17,000 agencies on behalf of Preferred's member hotels.

Onyx was accepted into the Alliance Partner Program after completing Preferred's partner evaluation process to ensure it satisfied the program's standards of service. Through full affiliation with the program, Onyx now will be featured as a trusted financial technology solutions provider in a variety of promotions and communications to Preferred's global network, with every hotel receiving access to exclusive benefits.

"Preferred Hotels & Resorts is committed to providing our member properties with innovative, best-in-class and cost-effective solutions to support their business objectives," said Michael Osgood, Preferred's vice president of alliance partnerships. "We recognize that in this time of travel market recovery, efficiency has become an even higher priority.

"We are pleased to welcome Onyx into our Alliance Partner Program, knowing that the company will serve as a strong extension of our member properties' teams by helping them facilitate seamless, timely payments to our valuable travel agent community and other distribution partners while allowing them to focus on their guests and their property experience."

Architecture & Design: Wellness is Key


Like every other facet of hotel operations, architecture and design firms are adapting their work to ensure the safety and well-being of both guests and staff. New ways to bring Wellness into hotel spaces are being explored and these solutions are taking on many forms. Hotel designs are incorporating more open floor plans, open air spaces, high ceilings, outdoor areas and operable walls into their spaces. Guests no longer want to be packed into tight areas. More "biophilic" elements are also being incorporated, offering guests the sense of being outdoors. Another trend is the reimagining of guest rooms to support remote work capabilities. Some hotels are converting empty guest rooms into office spaces, complete with effective lighting and suitable backgrounds for video conferencing. Dedicated Zoom Rooms are also becoming increasingly popular. The main goal is to provide guests with a positive experience in a space that feels safe and comfortable. These are some of the architecture and design subjects that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
