WASHINGTON, Jan. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- BridgeStreet Global Hospitality announced today four groundbreaking partnerships and offerings that mark the beginning of new era in its ongoing mission to revolutionize extended-stay travel. These integrations—Dufl, a luggage-packing service; Blue Apron; Enterprise Rent-A-Car; and the tour operator CityUnscripted—continue BridgeStreet's unparalleled integration of the "built for business" travel hospitality market with the sharing economy.
All four companies will work hand-in-hand with BridgeStreet to transform extended-stay solutions, and will also merge their services seamlessly into BridgeStreet's digital platform, giving business travelers a wealth of options at their fingertips and streamlining travel arrangements for individuals and companies with diverse extended-stay needs to book in real time.
These were announced by BridgeStreet President and CEO Sean Worker, "This is a defining moment for extended-stay travel. We listen to the changing needs of our customers, and look at the trends and unique service offerings that will drive the hospitality industry forward. On their own, these partnerships are material improvements to travel – yet the combination of these services is a resounding achievement in travel standards by allowing our quests more freedom of choice. BridgeStreet guests now have the resources to make their travel experiences authentic, local and convenient."
BridgeStreet has been an enthusiastic disruptor of the extended-stay hospitality experience, sweeping away the outdated, one-size-fits-all mindset of traditional extended-stay category. BridgeStreet's mission has been to allow travelers of all kinds to live locally while traveling globally, and with its broad portfolio of homes and serviced apartments around the world—and its commitment to duty of care—it remains the market leader in bringing choice, control, flexibility, and the assurance of peace of mind to extended stay experiences.
With this notable development, BridgeStreet takes its mission to the next level. By merging its own high level of service with proven industry leaders in a variety of travel-based businesses, BridgeStreet now offers extended-stay travelers an unrivaled in-world experience—one that leaves them feeling like any need can be easily met while maintaining the freedom and freshness that great travel demands. BridgeStreet clients can now tailor virtually every aspect of their extended-stay experience, from dealing with their luggage and booking a car, through finding and ordering the best local cuisine and embracing the unique cultural experiences that await just outside their door.
"We partnered with BridgeStreet because we share the goal of connecting visitors to the communities they are visiting, said Nick Whitfield, CEO of CityUnscripted. We connect travelers to the people, places and things that make a city unique; replicating the experience of spending time in a city with a friend who lives there. We believe that the best travel moments come from going beneath the surface of a destination and discovering it through a local lens. We are looking forward to expanding this relationship with BridgeStreet."
"We're very excited to partner with BridgeStreet because of their high standards of excellence," said Andrea Graziani, Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Officer of Dufl. "We are like-minded in that we want the best experience for our travelers, offering comfort and peace of mind, and allowing them to focus on business. We're extremely happy to be partnered with such a well-respected and reputable global brand."
