Hilton Orlando Taps SpaBooker’s Online Spa and Fitness Software for New 1,400-Room Hilton Resort
New York, NY (November 11, 2009) − The Hilton Orlando and SpaBooker (a division of SpaFinder, Inc.), announced today that SpaBooker will provide the exclusive online appointment booking system for the new Spa at Hilton Orlando and the resort’s fitness center. Using SpaBooker’s technology, Hilton Orlando guests will be able to research treatments/services and available times, and schedule live, verified appointments – whether they’re booking from the resort at the last minute or planning appointments months in advance.
Hilton Orlando is the newest Hilton property in Orlando, one of largest vacation destinations in the world. The 1,400-room Hilton property, which opened on September 1st, features a spectacular 15,000-square-foot-spa and fitness center, resort and quiet pools, whirlpools, cabanas, a ‘lazy’ river, jogging track, and basketball/tennis/volleyball/bocce ball courts. Resort guests can book appointments for over 75 different treatments in 15 spa treatment rooms, as well as reserve poolside cabanas, from any Internet connection in the world. Hilton Orlando is also selling passes to the fitness center through SpaBooker.
“We’re extremely proud that Hilton Orlando has selected SpaBooker to help power its Spa and support its online marketing initiatives,” said Daniel Lizio-Katzen, Managing Director, SpaBooker. “We look forward to providing Hilton spa properties with powerful new features and a steady stream of new customers.”
SpaBooker’s technology takes online appointment booking deeper than existing reservation systems. Consumers can not only book times, they can also conveniently research treatments, services and pricing – and then schedule an appointment for that chosen treatment/service, reserving it securely with a credit card or gift certificate.
SpaBooker is the spa management solution not only for Hilton Orlando, but also numerous spas at other Hilton hotels and resorts throughout the U.S., Caribbean and other worldwide destinations (www.hiltonspas.com).
