The Newport Harbor Hotel & Marina in Newport, R.I., selected IDeaS Revenue Solutions to improve pricing decisions and overall revenue strategy. With nearly 50 properties in its portfolio, both independent and branded hotels, Shaner Group made a choice for the hotel to advance its revenue strategy from a manual structure to an automated system.

“We found our choice to be rather clear, as all of our Hilton-branded properties within our portfolio are working with IDeaS, and have experienced great results,” the hotel's VP of revenue management, Geoffrey Field, said in a statement. “Knowing many of our other properties were successfully running under IDeaS made us confident in our decision.”

Overlooking Newport Harbor with dining, live music and proximity to cultural attractions, The Newport Harbor Hotel is named one of Newport's best locations for sightseeing. Being a busy area of Newport, The Newport Harbor Hotel required a comprehensive revenue management system with forward-looking data to assist with decision-making and enhancing its revenue strategy.
