"Trade to Travel" announces Boutique Hotel Exchange (BoutiqueHotelExchange.com)
Via "Boutique Hotel Exchange," owners and general managers of boutique hotels enjoy the unparalleled exchange services of TTT and their hotels profit from members dining in their restaurants, socializing in their bars and lounges, using spa services, tipping staff, etc.
Gordon Bear, the owner of magnificent Lumley Castle and Coombe Abbey in England, has been a member since 1992. He says, "It is important for owners of luxury properties to network. For example, when members of "Trade to Travel" visit Lumley Castle, I give them the King James Suite whenever possible because I will receive the same preferential treatment when I visit other properties within the network."
At the end of 2013, Gordon Bear asked Leah Powell (the president of TTT) to bring aboard more 4 and 5 Star boutique hotels since he prefers to stay in fine hotels rather than villas when he travels. Since then, TTT has partnered with over thirty luxury hotels and recently created a new website specifically for boutique hotels: www.BoutiqueHotelExchange.com
Owners of many of the world's finest hotels have been members of TTT for 10-20 years. The Five-Star Park Hotel Kenmare is "The Best Hotel in Ireland" and "The #2 Spa in Europe" according to Conde Nast and Travel & Leisure. The proprietor of The Park Hotel Kenmare, Francis Brennan, has been a member for 17 years.
The Marcliffe Hotel & Spa in Aberdeen, Scotland is a five-star property whose owner, Stewart Spence, has been a member for 18 years. Superb golf can be enjoyed at the Royal Aberdeen Golf Club (established 1780, the sixth oldest registered club in the world), Cruden Bay, Trump International, and Murcar.
In the heart of Paris, The Hotel St. Paul has been welcoming members of TTT since 1995. Ideally located in the Latin Quarter between St Germain des Pres, the Sorbonne, Notre Dame, and the Luxembourg Gardens, this XVIIth century residence is owned by Marianne Oberlin who is the 4th generation of the same family of hoteliers who have maintained the high standards of this bijou dwelling.
These visionary women and men recognized the brilliance of the TTT concept as soon as they heard of it. All these years later, people are still struck by what a great idea it is. Virgin Airlines' Voyeur magazine called TTT a trend that will change the way people travel and said, "Swaps with Trade to Travel are on everyone's wish list."
Paul Nabor, Director of Sales & Marketing for TTT says, “Boutique Hotel Exchange makes perfect sense for hotels because membership turns vacancies into occupancy - increasing income for food & beverage, services and amenities, etc. Hotels, resorts and spas accommodate our members in exchange for points which proprietors, general managers, and staff use to enjoy exceptional accommodations worldwide. Plus, points can be used to by their family and friends. Luxury vacations make excellent employee incentives/rewards and wonderful gifts for holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries!"
