Curator offers innovative solutions to its members, allowing them to cater to travelers seeking lodging options with much more than the basic amenities.
BETHESDA, MARYLAND – Curator Hotel & Resort Collection announced The Fontaine in Kansas City, Missouri, Inn on Fifth in Naples, Florida, Lorien Hotel & Spa in Alexandria, Virginia, and Newpark Resort in Park City, Utah as the newest members of its growing collection. With offerings such as luxurious spa treatments, progressive cuisine options, and access to year-round activities with nature as a spectacular backdrop, these hotels directly speak to the caliber of experiences that await travelers who stay at a Curator member property.
“We’ve welcomed nine new members to our collection since the year started, bringing our roster to 91 indie hotels,” said Jennifer Barnwell, President of Curator Hotel & Resort Collection. “We are incredibly excited to work with our new hotel owners and operators to implement the broad array of Curator benefits and services at each property. As we look ahead, we plan to continue adding value enhancement offerings for our members so they can focus on providing unique and memorable experiences to their guests.”
Curator offers innovative solutions to its members, allowing them to cater to travelers seeking lodging options with much more than the basic amenities. Solutions include contracts with systems providers, technology platforms, and services that generate cost savings and other benefits for members, allowing them to exceed guest expectations.
"Once we learned about Curator's resources and how all of their programs and contracts help independent hotels thrive, becoming a member was a no-brainer for us," said Chris Eggleton, Owner of Newpark Resort. "We have already gained access to a multitude of resources and tools that allow us to be much more efficient and profitable. Without Curator, we wouldn't have known about these tools or had access to them. Curator has generated significant cost savings for our hotel while freeing up our staff to focus on meeting the needs of our guests.”
