Get your hotel onto Airbnb effortlessly
On February 7th we announced with Airbnb that we are Airbnb’s first Global Hotel Technology Partner. We also announced that we have jointly developed with Airbnb technology that for the first time allows boutique hotels and B&Bs to have a real-time connection of room rates and availability between Airbnb and a hotel’s property management system (PMS). This new connection has been highly anticipated and SiteMinder is excited to announce that it is now live!
How does it work?
SiteMinder customers can apply to be listed on Airbnb through their Channel Manager. If they are approved by Airbnb, SiteMinder will add Airbnb as an online channel for distributing room rates and availability. You will need to add your hotel content (pictures, descriptions etc) and then you will be reviewed by Airbnb. It’s that simple. (Please note that non-customers must be active in a free trial with at least one other live online channel to initiate an Airbnb application.)
What types of hotels is Airbnb looking for?
Airbnb is looking for boutique hotels and B&Bs that offer a “unique” guest experience, such as highly-rated boutique hotels, lodges, bed & breakfasts or serviced apartments with unique design characteristics and personal touches which set the property apart from others. More details about Airbnb standards can be found here. Not all hotels will be accepted, and we strongly encourage hotels to consider their fit before beginning the application.
If you believe your property could be a great fit, the first step to have your property listed on Airbnb is to apply via the form on this page. Please make sure to mention that you are using SiteMinder’s Channel Manager and add any other information that could strengthen your application. An Airbnb team member will come back to you within 3 business days.
When is it available?
