Comcast Business Selected By Choice Hotels International As A Qualified Vendor For Data, Video And Voice Services

Today, Comcast Business announced it has been selected by Choice Hotels International as a Qualified Vendor for business data, video and voice services. Under the agreement, Comcast Business is a qualified technology provider that can be utilized by any of the more than 5,000 Choice Hotels franchise properties across the U.S. that are in Comcast’s service areas, including brands such as Comfort Inn, Comfort Suites, Quality Inn, Sleep Inn, Clarion, Cambria Hotels & Suites, MainStay Suites, Suburban Extended Stay Hotel, Econo Lodge, Rodeway Inn and Ascend Hotels.

“In the hospitality industry, the key to building brand loyalty is to deliver a consistent, high-quality experience, especially in meeting guest expectations for reliable, high-speed Internet access and a robust HD solution,” said Alex Sewell, executive director, Emerging Markets, Comcast Business. “Choice Hotels has a rich history of implementing technological innovations for their guests, including offering the first global hotel application for the smart phone, and we look forward to working with their franchisees to provide our advanced technology solutions.”

To ensure a consistent set of vendors offering high-quality services for its franchises, the Choice Hotels Procurement team evaluates hundreds of potential vendors, who must meet various standards to be selected as a Qualified Vendor. The selection criteria include the ability to provide national or regional service, competitive pricing, strong experience with hospitality clients, a track record of successful business operation and financial stability, the ability to fulfill orders for its 5,000 domestic franchisees, and having standards and systems for continuous improvement.

Comcast Business Hospitality provides a suite of Ethernet, Internet, HDTV and advanced voice services customized for the hospitality industry. Comcast’s product suite enables hotels to leverage advanced technology from a single provider to help improve the guest experience and streamline back-office operations. Comcast built its network for speed and reliability, serving 39 states and 20 of the nation’s 25 largest markets.

The combination of Comcast’s broad portfolio of services, high-performance network and enterprise support team make it uniquely suited to meet the needs of the hospitality industry. The strength and reach of Comcast’s network, which is a result of decades of investments by the company, provides hotels with a reliable connection – even across geographically dispersed properties – and enables them to deliver data, video and voice services seamlessly.
