SOUTHLAKE, Texas, 12 January – Langham Hotels International, a global chain with hotels in the U.S., Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, has selected Sabre Hospitality Solutions’ comprehensive suite of distribution and marketing products for its three brands: The Langham, Langham Place and Eaton.   Langham Hotels will use Sabre Hospitality Solutions’ SynXis Central Reservation System (CRS) to connect seamlessly to all channels including the four Global Distribution Systems, thousands of online travel agents and to power its own Web site bookings coming from    


Langham Hotels will switch its LO chain code in early 2010 and establish a new chain code, EQ, for its Eaton Hotel brands.  Sabre Hospitality Solutions’ experience managing more private label chain codes than any other reservations provider contributed to Langham’s decision to switch.  Other reasons cited by Langham Hotels officials were the unsurpassed reliability of the CRS and the deep level of systems integration that Sabre Hospitality Solutions offers including enhanced interfaces to Langham’s Property Management System (PMS) and Revenue Management System (RMS).


“We were impressed with Sabre Hospitality Solutions’ end-to-end solution for our hotels.  We appreciate the ease of getting all of our distribution and marketing needs met by one single company,” said Bob van den Oord, vice president, sales and marketing for Langham Hotels International.  “Not only do they offer a breadth of products and services that we can benefit from, but their expertise in successfully managing chains will benefit all of our properties.”


Langham has a legendary hotel heritage dating back to 1865 when The Langham in London originally opened as Europe’s first Grand Hotel.  Today, all Langham Hotels worldwide inherit the same philosophy that reflects elegance in design, innovation in hospitality, genuine service and captivation of the senses creating a truly unique hotel experience.  The group is pursuing an aggressive portfolio growth strategy using its distinctive brands and affiliates – The

Langham, Langham Place, Eaton Luxe and Eaton Smart. Currently 20 hotels, including affiliates, are open or in the pipeline across four continents.


 “Langham Hotels is well known throughout the world for offering a first-class hotel experience and we are honored that they recognized Sabre Hospitality Solutions’ power of a strong, integrated solution to help build revenues online and offline through multiple channels,” said Patrick Andrès, managing director, Sabre Hospitality Solutions. “We have worked hard to build our reputation as the leading provider of distribution and marketing products and services and this big win affirms the direction we have taken.  We look forward to creating another success story for Langham Hotels.”
