Dublin’s Fashionable Morgan Hotel Chooses Utell Hotels and Resorts
Friday 26, February 2010
Utell® Hotels & Resorts has welcomed Dublin’s contemporary-styled Morgan Hotel to its international hotel portfolio of more than 9,000 member hotels.
Located in Dublin’s vibrant city centre, the 121-room Morgan expands Utell’s rich offering in Ireland with a hotel that appeals to both business and leisure bookers.
The Morgan Hotel was originally designed by the renowned Phillippe Starck, and offers travelers deluxe rooms, suites and a penthouse with a rooftop garden. Touted as a funky boutique hotel, it features risqué and provocative, yet intimate design throughout the guestrooms, cocktail bar, outdoor spaces and meeting rooms. The hotel is situated in Dublin’s city centre, and is a short walk from Trinity College, Grafton Street, the main shopping thoroughfare, theatres, restaurants and nightlife.
“The Morgan Hotel Dublin is an ideal addition to the Utell portfolio,” said Ric Leutwyler, president of Utell Hotels & Resorts. “A unique boutique hotel in a desirable destination like Dublin, it’s the perfect candidate to benefit from our powerful worldwide marketing, sales and representation services, not to mention Pegasus Solutions’ leading reservations and booking technology services that are provided to all Utell member hotels.”
Utell, the world’s largest and most experienced third-party hotel marketing, sales and representation organization, is now providing the Morgan Hotel with an aggressive international sales presence and an unrivaled marketing support program. It is also benefiting from access to global distribution, award-winning Web services, business intelligence services and reservations technology powered by Pegasus Solutions. Member hotels like the Morgan also reap the rewards of Utell’s relationships with major travel agencies, travel management companies (TMC’s), corporations, online distributors and consortia groups.
“We’re very happy to join Utell to benefit from their extensive business generating services to reach international travelers seeking the best of what our city has to offer,” added Katrina Joyce, assistant director of sales for the Morgan Hotel. “Boutique hotels like ours offer the intimacy and high levels of service many travelers, both business and leisure, are looking for in their travel experience. Utell provides similar impressive levels of business support to enable us to focus on being able to deliver this to our guests.”
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
