SAN FRANICSCO, Calif., March 27, 2019 – Global hospitality group, Millennium Hotels & Resorts (MHR), has today launched a brand-new corporate bookings product, Millennium for Business. Breathing new life into their previous offering, Business Direct, the new digital program has been created for SME’s, empowering them to manage team travel with flexibility and ease.
Millennium for Business offers an intuitive online booking experience that is integrated with the MyMillennium rewards program. The dedicated service, with its simple social sign-on and central dashboard allows the business to manage travel, make itinerary style bookings, cater to team member needs and earn rewards. All bookings benefit from the updated Best Rate Promise which helps the business maximize budgets; the service also gives travel managers access to insights and reporting.
MHR collaborated with the SME travel industry to design the benefits on offer to Millennium for Business users and guests such as regular room upgrades, 15% off on all dining and events, early check-in and late check-out, and access to club or executive lounge. This new program is available across all of MHR’s hotels in Asia, Europe, Middle East and the US. London, Paris, New York, Beijing, Los Angeles, Singapore and other destinations are on offer to the SME’s for combining business and leisure trips, an up and coming trend seen within travel.
Of the new product, SVP of Digital, Distribution & Revenue Strategy, Nayan Peshkar, said “SME travel managers told us that travel technology usage is both pervasive and individual at the same time therefore wanting a service that personalized corporate travel, though also needing it to be secure and fitting into their travel policies. Millennium for Business is a product that empowers SME’s as the key target booker, having seen how under-represented they are in the business travel sector. This purely digital platform makes travel procurement efficient, secure and simple.”
