SilverDoor brings the most extensive global serviced accommodation portfolio to buyers with its powerful, modern and agile API

SilverDoor

This offering is via the SilverDoor API and allows the most direct comparison between hotels and serviced accommodation, including comparisons between nightly rates, facilities and carbon emissions. 

It’s historically been a challenge for serviced accommodation providers to fit seamlessly into the established processes and conventions of the GDS-dominated space of travel and relocation management companies.

For the first time, SilverDoor’s new API – built with SilverDoor’s years of expertise and innovation in travel technology – solves this by bringing serviced accommodation content, aggregated from more than 2600 individual global operators, to TMCs’ and RMCs’ platforms alongside their hotel listings.

Once connected, clients will be able to view this extensive content on their own platforms and leverage the out-of-the-box feature to either enquire or instant book accommodation via the SilverDoor Booking API. The SilverDoor Analytics API also fetches booking and spending data with real-time accuracy.

SilverDoor’s Chief Information and Technology Officer, Hanish Vithal, said of the development: “Our API is the most modern and powerful connection currently available in the serviced accommodation sector, so I’m super excited to launch this new product to the market. It has been built with years of experience understanding clients’ needs and, due to its customisable, robust and secure build, we can work with any client’s own technology to make the offering bespoke to them. This ensures the API fits the client’s workflow, making the process seamless and simple for both travel managers and end travellers.” 

Pauline Houston, SilverDoor’s Senior Vice President Business Development, also said: “The message from our clients has been clear for a long time: if serviced accommodation wants to compete with hotels, they need to exist in the same spaces, offer live rates, and have seamless, instant booking technology. This API brings the SilverDoor portfolio squarely into those spaces and is instantly available to view and book alongside hotel rooms. This represents a huge step in making serviced accommodation more easily accessible to relocation and business travel programmes.” 

This announcement comes less than two months after the public launch of the agency’s Carbon Calculator tool, allowing bookers to compare carbon emissions data for serviced accommodation. Both developments, built entirely by SilverDoor’s in-house Technology team, aim to provide travel buyers with the most transparent information for informed comparison between accommodation options.
