Hotel du Pont advances pricing strategy

Hotel du Pont in Wilmington, Del., will implement the IDeaS G3 revenue-management system.

Hotel management company PM Hotel Group has partnered with IDeaS Revenue Solutions. PM Hotel Group manages the historic 217-room Hotel du Pont in Wilmington, Del. Hotel du Pont will implement the IDeaS G3 revenue-management system to take full advantage of the flexible and powerful approach to pricing and inventory control by room class and length of stay, generating maximum overall revenue.

IDeaS' continuous pricing, as part of IDeaS' multiple pricing approach, was a key contributing factor in the decision-making process, providing Hotel du Pont a competitive advantage in the market by analytically optimizing pricing without rate tiers.

"The hotel already stood strongly in their market by utilizing a reliable approach to revenue management,” Leticia Proctor, SVP of sales, revenue management and digital strategies at PM Hotel Group, said in a statement. “Our objective was to take Hotel du Pont to the next level by identifying its revenue potential if we implemented an automated revenue system.
