Choice Hotels Completes Integration of Radisson Hotels Americas
Choice Hotels announced this week that all nine Radisson Hotels Americas brands are now available to be booked on ChoiceHotels.com. This adds nearly 600 hotels onto its central reservation system ahead of schedule and less than a year since its acquisition of Radisson Americas closed.
Choice also announced the successful integration of the Radisson Rewards Americas loyalty program into its own Choice Privileges program. This enables the nearly 60 million Choice Privileges members to earn and redeem points at over 7,400 hotels across 22 brands in 45 countries and territories.
“We are excited to offer travelers hundreds of additional hotels to choose from on ChoiceHotels.com, including numerous upscale and full-service properties, as we welcome our Radisson franchisees to Choice’s powerful reservation engine,” said Pat Pacious, CEO, Choice Hotels International, in the press release. “Integrating nearly 600 hotels and the Radisson Rewards Americas program in such a short period of time is a testament to Choice’s advanced technology and integration expertise and shows our commitment to providing franchisees with opportunities for optimal success and offering travelers ways to easily find the right hotel to meet their travel needs on one website.”
