Golden Tulip, an E-commerce leader and pioneer

With an estimated user population of over 1.6 billion people, the Internet has evolved faster than any other media in history. Golden Tulip embraces this phenomenon and assists its hotels in harnessing the power and potential of the web.

During the past decade, Golden Tulip has proven to be early adaptors in the E-commerce market, being one of the first in offering corporate logins on their brand websites to their corporate clients (2001). They were the first international hotel chain to offer a mobile website and RSS feeds (2005), as well as the first to embrace user generated content by publishing online guest reviews on the brand websites (2008). More recently they were pioneers in offering each of their hotels the Facebook 'like' API (2010) on their hotel websites.

With the previous Goldres2 version, Golden Tulip were already among the first hotel groups to offer next generation seamless connectivity, Total Pricing, and BAR indicators to all major Global Distribution Systems (GDS). Today, Golden Tulip has migrated its Central Reservations System Goldres to a new scalable and flexible platform, to stay ahead in terms of features and business critical functionality offerings: Goldres3.

Golden Tulip, the highest standards for the best services

Pierre Frederic Roulot, President of Golden Tulip and Louvre Hotels: "Nowadays to have a website and to get connected online is simple. However, what really matters is how we can engage with our guests and have full control of how we distribute our products to the market. We take pride in offering our hotels sustainable growth of their business through sophisticated distribution solutions."
