AIHP Allied Partner, Innkeeper’s Advantage, Delivers New Connectivity with Airbnb

December 29, 2017 - The Association of Independent Hospitality Professionals (AIHP), the leading independent small lodging association in the U.S., is pleased to announce that one of our founding members, Innkeeper’s Advantage, is now able to provide to its clients a two-way connection with the Airbnb platform, one of the world’s leading online booking platforms for travelers.

AIHP delivers many benefits to its growing list of B&B and allied partner members through education, advocacy, professional development, and strategic partnerships. “We celebrate the connections that our allied partners are making with booking platforms to support our industry”, said Fulton. “Innkeeper’s Advantage is one of our key allied partners, and by creating an interface to Airbnb they are meeting our innkeepers needs in the technology arena.”

Cindy Bachmann, President of Innkeeper’s Advantage said, "We are thrilled to add Airbnb to our suite of Channel Management partners. This connection will help our B&B customers reach a wider audience and help Airbnb offer more independent lodging choices to its website visitors. Both our booking engine and website products enable innkeepers to create their Airbnb listings automatically from the Innkeeper’s Advantage Control Panel. The Airbnb listing can be approved in a matter of hours provided that the required content and images are entered in the system.”

Fulton said, “AIHP is working diligently to help our allied partners like Innkeeper’s Advantage make connections and form partnerships with the various marketing channels that our members use, like Airbnb.” AIHP will continue to lead the industry in cooperative partnerships that help create more bookings for our members. Bachmann added, "With this new connection, innkeepers can automatically synchronize their rates, availability, reservations and tax reporting with Airbnb and all other connected marketing channels.”
