Mr. Talese will represent HCC in the acquisition of net rate and commissioned rate hotel rooms for cities throughout Florida. HCC, in turn, provides room inventory and reservations technology to a network of regional city guides including FtMyersBest.com, SanibelsBest.net, NaplesBest.net, CaptivasBest.com, MarcoHotelExperts.com, FtMyersHotelExperts.com, and SanibelHotelExperts.com.

HotelConnectionsCorporation (HotelConnectionsCorporation.com) creates world-class room reservation, golf tee time reservation, restaurant reservation, and tour packaging technology for their proprietary use in order to accommodate the growing need in their industry. They have recently made this technology available for lease to the Hospitality and Travel Industries. HotelConnectionsCorporation has relationships with 350 (and growing daily) hotels to market rooms. These are not normally discounted, but are sold at market rates to travelers the property would not otherwise reach. The sale of rooms through HCC’s system nets Lodging Property Owners substantially more net revenue than if the same rooms were to be sold through HCC’s competitors (Travelocity, Hotels.com, Expedia, Hotwire, and Priceline.)
HotelConnectionsCorporation also provides online and call center reservation systems for Convention and Visitors Bureaus, individual hotels, inns, resorts, other lodging properties, and destination attraction’s Web sites.
