Prompted by strong growth in the first quarter ended March 31, 2017, the new property is part of 34 new locations opened during this time period.
Above Property will provide cloud-based travel platform services for Motel 6 and Studio 6 properties.

G6 Hospitality, LLC, the parent company of Motel 6 and Studio 6 brands in the U.S. and Canada, selected existing partner Above Property for its cloud-based travel platform services suite for Motel 6 and Studio 6 properties. The selection of Above Property continues the platform transformation at G6 Hospitality, which includes ongoing efforts to revamp the brand’s tech platforms, processes and systems to support its growing network of more than 1,400 corporate-owned and franchisee properties.

Above Property’s distributed reservations, inline revenue management, channel management, call center, and content management modules reimagine how core travel systems operate today. Through an orchestrated multi-datacenter, multicloud provider configuration, Above Property brings a new level of speed, stability and scalability to the travel industry.
