AAHOA partners with Magnuson Hotels

The Asian American Hotel Owners Association entered into a partnership with Magnuson Hotels to provide access to Magnuson Hotels’ global reservation system.

The Magnuson Hotels partnership will enable AAHOA’s thousands of independent hoteliers greater access to online bookings. With more than 16,000 members, AAHOA members own nearly one in every two hotels in the United States. With 1,000 hotels across three continents, Magnuson Hotels is the world’s largest independent hotel group. Magnuson Hotels will give AAHOA’s independent hotelier members access to its global reservation system of over 2,000 travel websites and 650,000 travel agents.

AAHOA members will also join Magnuson’s new global hotel alliance with Jin Jiang Hotels, China’s largest operator, and Louvre Hotels Group, Europe’s largest operator.  The partnership represents an inventory base of nearly 8,000 hotels/800,000 rooms, a consortium the size of the second largest global group.
