Portola Hotel & Spa Integrate SpeedRFP Pro Into Their Hotel Services

New Technology Now Allows a Chain of 27 Hotels to Place All Their eRFPs in One Place

MONTEREY, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 12, 2011) - As a member of Destination Hotels & Resorts (DH&R), Portola Hotel & Spa joins a group of 26 other hotels in integrating Elite Meetings International, Inc.'s (EMI) new product, SpeedRFP Pro.

With SpeedRFP Pro, Portola Hotel & Spa will now have the ability to store any eRFPS to one central location shared with DH&R's hotels by delivering business data directly to its Delphi sales and catering system. This new technology will assist in improving response time, reducing costs, and having to rekey data.

Andre Fournier, senior vice president of sales and marketing of DH&R's hotels, says that they are "extremely pleased to partner with EMI on the implementation of this state-of-the-art and streamlined system that will serve as a tremendous resource to our meeting planner community."

SpeedRFP was launched in 2010, and serves as a primary online RFP system for Preferred Hotel Group, Dolce Hotels and Resorts, The Broadmoor, Wynn Resorts Las Vegas, Palm Place Hotel and Spa, PGA National Resort and Spa, and more than 130 hotel web sites.
