WASHINGTON, Sept. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- The Hotel Marketing industry has soared in 2010, as hotel owners have experienced higher than normal vacancy rates from a weak economy. Hotel Marketing Companies like TDY Lodging have helped hundreds of hotels and extended-stay suites reach out to a very stable and lucrative market: the Government Travel and Defense Lodging industry. DoD Lodging makes up a large segment of the Department of Defense travel budget, and hotel owners seeking to market their lodging to government and Military travelers have maintained above-average hotel occupancy rates by marketing through TDY Lodging's unique Corporate Lodging system.
Matthew Foster, a U.S. Army veteran and founder of TDY Lodging, briefed members of the press on the success of their business model, "Hotel Marketing Companies are a major component to creating a successful Hospitality Management Plan for hotels and lodging establishments of all sizes. TDY Lodging connects military and government travelers directly with lodging providers, which creates a win-win situation; this means no third party booking fees for hotel owners, and service members have more lodging options than ever before."
The acquisition of Naval Base Lodging and Marine Base Lodging website BaseLodging.com earlier in the year allowed TDY Lodging to fill a large gap in hotel marketing to the Defense Travel sector, offering Military Rate Hotels where the Defense Travel System (DTS) and Army Lodging Success Program (LSP) lack sufficient DoD Lodging options. Hotel Marketing websites like TDY Lodging offer an easy alternative for Hotel Management to diversify their marketing plan to a steady customer base, and the company features over 100 locations throughout the United States and Europe.
TDY Lodging has several key markets throughout the U.S. including Washington, DC Military Lodging, and near MacDill Air Force Base TDY Lodging offers Tampa Corporate Housing options, with NAS San Diego Lodging being the largest west coast location catering to Naval Air Station North Island Coronado, MCAS Miramar, and Marine Corps Base MCB Camp Pendleton Lodging. Hotel marketing through TDY Lodging has been so successful for hotel owners that many have listed multiple hotels and even their private vacation rentals near military installation locations like San Diego and Hawaii. For the small marketing cost to join the TDY Lodging network, many hotel owners and managers have been able to significantly boost reservations while at the same time diversify their Hotel Marketing Plan.
