InnLink announces first comprehensive solution for properties
leaving or transitioning from a franchise
- BridgeLink-


March 18, 2010 - InnLink announced today a comprehensive solution for properties in transition.  When leaving a flag, by choice or not, a hotel is often stripped of marketing, technology and reservation services. A property must quickly implement a gamete of solutions, from outside signage to a new PMS. Speed of transition is essential to ensure sustained profitability, especially in our current economic environment.   InnLink announces BridgeLink, a comprehensive set of services to provide hotels an alternative during any franchise transition.

Each property leaving a flag will have different needs. Whether transitioning to another brand or establishing an independent property, BridgeLink offers 3 unique package options to specifically meet the objectives of each hotelier. BridgeLink ensures your hotel is positioned for success.

“For years we have helped hotels transition successfully either to a new franchise or find their legs as an independent stated Kristin Intress, President, InnLink, “We’re excited to formally bring a comprehensive solution unlike any in the marketplace. Whether a short-term requirement, or a lasting change, we are here to help.”

“We used InnLink in our last transition between flags and found them to be an excellent solution. They were knowledgeable and treated us well, even though they knew we were going to leave when our new flag was implemented,” said Sarkis Kazanjian, Comfort Bayside Inn, NJ, I recommend working with InnLink to gain on room revenue and occupancy market share, especially during a short term brand transitioning period.”
