Best Hotel Booking & Reservation Website 2017 Getaroom was created to offer clients the very best values at hotels and other types of lodging in major destinations worldwide. We explore the secrets behind the success of this leader in online hotel bookings.
These two leaders in the hotel booking industry met while in law school at Cornell in 1979. They both practiced law at two of the countryâ€™s top law firms: Diener practiced at Gibson Dunn in Los Angeles and Litman practiced at Johnson & Swanson in Dallas. After practicing law for a little over two years, they started an airline business together which they sold in 1990 and founded Hotel Reservations Network. Known in the industry as HRN, they negotiated deals with hotels and started a consumer marketplace to book deals on hotels. To provide consumers with good value and provide a model with great cash flow, they created the merchant model for booking hotel rooms, the dominant model still used today to book hotel rooms.
HRN negotiated net rates from the hotels and sold the rooms at a mark-up which resulted in a discount to the consumer. Customers paid up-front for the hotel rooms and HRN negotiated terms with the hotels. This provided great cash flow for HRN to expand their business. They quickly expanded from six markets to a worldwide business and in 1995 discovered a new technology called the internet. Together the pair built one of the first sites for commerce on the web, hoteldiscount.com and in 1996 it accounted for over 6% of their business even though it was not interactive. When the internet became interactive in 1997, their business exploded. Diener likens it to the industrial revolution because now consumers could instantly book hotel rooms anywhere in the world and receive an instant response. Consumers were frustrated booking hotels because travel agents did not want to be bothered with it at the time. Commission on hotel bookings was low so their focus was on airfare bookings which paid generous commissions. At the time, most consumers spent a lot of time contacting hotels by phone to find a hotel room. With hoteldiscount.com, the process was now simple and easy and HRN started growing at triple digit rates. In 1999, they sold a majority interest to
USA Networks, which became Interactive Corp., and took the company public in 2000, in one of the most successful IPOs ever. In a market where most internet companies were going out of business as NASDAQ crashed, HRN stock, which became hotels.com stock ROOM, went from $16 to $92. Diener and Litman kept the company highly profitable while most internet companies at the time were only focused on their top line revenue, spending a fortune on marketing and taking on large losses. In 2003, Diener and Litman sold the balance of their interest to IAC and hotels.com was merged with Expedia. They had a five year non-compete and spent those five years in philanthropy helping many causes. When their non-compete ended, they saw an opportunity in the lodging market similar to when they launched HRN. The economy was dropping, hotels were looking for more channels of distribution and consumers were looking for better values and different ways to book hotels. They decided to create a new marketplace for booking hotels: getaroom.com. Working together, the pair created unique ways to book hotels on getaroom.com and get a better deal. The first is through Flash Sales. These are limited time offers running anywhere from two to seventy-two hours that hotels offer consumers
who book the hotel room by the sale deadline. Stays can typically be anytime but the room must be booked within the time window of the sale. Travelers can save as much as 60% off the lowest rate online if they book by the deadline. Hotels love the program because most travelers visit sites several times before they make a booking decision and the Flash Sale provides the incentive to book immediately and at their hotel. Also, the Flash Sales encourage advance booking so the hotels can increase their occupancy level and raise their rates to those who book closer to check-in. The hotels receive incremental bookings that otherwise would have been lost or gone to another property and now have a new and effective revenue management tool. The consumers receive a great value, visit the site often and become loyal customers. You never know when the Flash Sales are coming so this randomness of the sales encourages consumers to visit the site often to find the deals. Then they created the daily deals. Every day getaroom offers several hotels that have a special deal for 12 hours. They typically launch between 9 am and 12 pm, based on the time zone of the hotel. Most hotels allow stays over an extended period, usually 60 days. The deals are at popular hotels in top markets such as New York, Chicago,
Founded by Bob Diener and Dave Litman, two visionaries who revolutionized the hotel industry over two decades ago by co-founding what became hotels.com, getaroom has grown from offering limited markets to a worldwide business, offering B to B support and a consumer facing business with a focus on offering the highest level of customer care. They created the merchant model for booking hotel rooms online which is the standard way we still book hotel rooms today. They achieved the same level of excellence with getaroom.com.

Boston, Miami, Las Vegas, and Orlando. In addition, they also created a new and unique way to book and save through the Unpublished Rate Program which has a patent pending. There are thousands of hotels that offer getaroom a better rate as long as the lower rate is not published. Getaroom guarantees that the rate booked online is the lowest rate available but if you pick up the phone, you can typically save another 10-20%. No one knows what the rate is because it is not published and only available through the call center. Although savings are typically 10-20%, the actual amount saved can be as high as 60%. Rates are dynamic and change all the time so participating hotels can adjust the rate based on occupancy needs. Commenting on the firm’s success, Diener stated: “We are excited to receive the Boardroom Elite Best Hotel & Reservation Website 2017 Award as we strive hard every day to bring consumers the very best deals in an easy to book format. We were awarded the “Best Hotel Booking Site” by Frommers several years ago and we are very proud of that award as we are with the Boardroom Elite Award. We believe these awards are a testament to the great value and service we bring to the marketplace.” When the firm first started it had a much larger focus on building the brand, but Diener and Litman found they were losing money because they did not have the product and scale to launch a national brand. They shifted their model to focus on the B to B market, providing back end technology and product for other travel companies. They quickly turned losses into profits and went back to building the brand after they expanded their product to a wide international product and had the scale to expand the brand profitably. They plan to greatly expand the brand further following the success it has enjoyed so far. “Many entrepreneurs can’t make the quick change when their model
isn’t working and they double down on a losing model instead of changing. To be successful, you need to move quickly, measure every dollar of spend and adjust your model based on results”, says Diener. What truly sets getaroom apart is that they have inventory from many other travel sites so that in addition to contracting their own inventory, they show you the lowest rate available in the marketplace. They also show you the rate of the other major travel sites so you can be comfortable that you are booking the lowest rate. If another provider has a lower rate, that is the rate that is offered to you. Getaroom is a unique metasite. While the other metasites let you shop other travel sites, they just link you to the other travel site and you often do not know the site you are actually doing the booking on. With getaroom, you actually book on getaroom. Getaroom not only does the booking, but it provides the customer service to back it up. Getaroom is often praised by its customers for having the best customer service in the industry. So not only are you getting the best rate from many suppliers, you are also getting the best customer care. Another advantage of getaroom is that they offer not only hotels but all types of lodging including vacation rentals, condos, vacation homes, and B&Bs. These are all professionally managed and can be booked on a nightly basis without minimum week requirements. All of the properties have complete descriptions and photos and can be booked instantly. Out of the more than 160,000 properties on getaroom.com, over 30,000 are unique types of lodging and these are often the best values especially if you are traveling with a family and require more space, kitchen and more. For the price of a typical hotel room, the consumer often receives a large one or two-bedroom suite with kitchen, living room and much more. Overall, getaroom has three lines of business: its branded
site and call centers, its VIP and partner membership programs, and it provides the back end and fulfillment for many major travel sites such as TripAdvisor and Kayak. These sites promote their brands while getaroom provides the product and fulfills the booking. Getaroom’s market management team contracts all types of lodging including chains, independent and alternate lodging worldwide and provides this inventory to its branded site, call centers and also to many major travel sites. Getaroom has unique technology enabling it to provide these sites with turn-key programs based on the needs of the travel site. These include API connectivity, private label sites, call center options and fulfillment. Alongside its core services, getaroom has a VIP program which is an invitation only program based on the profile of the traveler. Membership cannot be purchased or obtained other than by invitation from getaroom or a current member. In addition, getaroom provides private label and back end services to many membership programs. These membership programs are unique memberships where the members have login credentials to access the programs. Getaroom provides unique membership pricing for these programs which currently have over 100 million members. This channel provides hotels with a unique leisure audience of consumers that are in a fenced off marketplace that does not compete with the mainstream hotel shopper. This allows hotels to offer special rates and compete in a marketplace that does not impact their publically available rates. Members can only access these rates with credentials and this is a growing and different marketplace. Ultimately, the online travel business is a constantly changing and evolving environment and getaroom strives to be ahead of the changes. As such, the founders created a mobile booking site early on and are constantly improving the site to be quick and easy to use and book. They
are innovating with flash sales, length of stay promotions (better rates for longer stays), last minute deals, advance purchase deals, better rates for nonrefundable bookings and more. They are also adding unique properties such as vacation rentals and homes that were very difficult to book in the past and making them simple and easy to book. They are continuing to create new ways for consumers to save on their travel bookings. Through this focus on developing and enhancing its service offering, getaroom is expected to continue to grow at high rates for the foreseeable future as Diener and Litman add more markets and hotels, alternate lodging, as well as currencies and languages. The firm also intends to expand internationally and find new areas of the marketplace that have not yet been tapped. They are on pace to book over $1 billion in lodging next year and this is still only a small percent of the $600 billion global lodging market. Although they have had great growth of their brand, the firm spends less than 2% of their revenues on marketing the brand and this is a great opportunity for growth. With a nominal increase in spending because of their strong brand name and great values that they offer, they expect to have significant growth of the brand over the next few years. Finally, the firm has also barely tapped their membership market. They have over 100 million members in their internal and partner membership programs. Only a small portion of these members take advantage of the special values they offer and they believe they can greatly expand this marketplace by making members more aware of the service and values. As they expand this marketplace, they will bring their lodging partners incremental business from this unique market that they do not have access to, and expand the overall market for lodging.

We invited the firm’s Principal Jeffrey McCoy to tell us more. Established in 2010, GutterDome has since been dedicated to providing its Dealer network with industry-leading gutter protection systems. The firm draws on the over 40 years’ experience of its executive team across a variety of disciplines, including manufacturing, marketing, finance, client retention, and sales to offer the very highest standard of gutter maintenance solutions, as Jeffrey outlines. “GutterDome, Inc. is the

This approach is extended both internally and externally, as Jeffrey firmly believes that if staff are supported and communicated with then clients will receive the same treatment also. “Here at GutterDome we operate an open-door policy that encourages associate two-way
communication, constructive feedback and active participation in the growth of the company, both for staff and clients.” Looking ahead, Jeffrey is excited for the future as GutterDome seeks to grow and expand in order to build upon its current success. “Moving forward, the Pacific Northwest is a rapidly expanding market for gutter guards based on the area demographics, dense tree canopies and annual rainfall for the entire region. In order to capitalize on this GutterDome is due to significantly expand our Dealer network across Florida, Illinois, Minnesota, New Jersey, Ohio, Oregon, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin.

Best Palliative Care Center - Ocala For more than three decades, Hospice of Marion County (HMC) has served tens of thousands of families as they face life’s most difficult transition, providing comfort care on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels. We profile the firm and allow CEO Mary Ellen Poe to talk us through the range of vital care services it offers.
“Recognition by the Boardroom Elite is validation that our not-forprofit business model has earned the merit it deserves,” said Mary Ellen Poe, CEO. “Adhering to our mission of providing exceptional, compassionate end-of-life care to our community, HMC knows that serious illness and death affect a wide circle of people and can have lingering effects. We have developed numerous programs over the years for those requiring support early in the end-of-life process through the nationally recognized Transitions program. Through our new free-standing grief complex, The Monarch Center for Hope & Healing, we also support anyone in the community undergoing loss, regardless of their hospice association (accidents, suicide, sudden death, death out of state, etc.). Both programs offer services at NO cost. It is our conviction that care goes beyond providing immediate care to the patient, but well before, during and after for those who remain
behind.” Hospice of Marion County’s longterm success is due to forwardthinking executives and the elite of medical professionals, both of whom operate from HMC’s core principle of compassion and caring. This combination has ensured a stellar reputation in the public and among community physicians. Hospice of Marion County’s strategic planning has long been to provide hospice care and more. Over the years, it has created companies under its umbrella to address the continuum of needs facing the senior population.
With the extraordinary rise of for-profit hospices throughout the nation over the past decade, maintaining a successful NFP model can be challenging when faced with profit-seeking enterprises. Florida’s growing senior population makes the state an enticing opportunity for national hospice chains. Currently the CON process (Certificate of Need) remains in place, but competition has opened the door for more hospices, providing more options, which is a positive aspect for the consumer if they know what to look for in a hospice.
Companies include Accent Medical, which provides durable medical equipment homedelivered to our patients and the public, as well as a retail store. The firm also owns the Center for Comprehensive Palliative Care, a national-award winning palliative care consulting program and one of the first in the country that works directly with physicians to manage pain and symptoms of hospital patients at any age suffering from any condition. HMC offers free specialty programs, including Transitions, which was established in 2001, and started with 10 patients. Today Transitions has two managers, who handle 250 clients with life-threatening illnesses, providing case management and resources, while volunteers provide respite for caregivers, transportation, companionship, errands and light housework.
“AT HMC we believe that our comprehensive model, as opposed to basic hospice only, answers the many needs of families during the most vulnerable times of their lives,” adds Poe. “The integrity of our business structure and the corporate culture of compassion, care and professionalism sets us apart.” HMC consistently maintains 80.5% of its budget on program expenses with 18% toward management and 1.5% on fundraising (Form 990/20152016).
Ultimately, HMC is a longrespected member of the community with a Board of Directors consisting of a range of esteemed local business leaders. Partnering with United Way, WellFlorida, Access to Healthcare, the American Heart Association, the Cancer Alliance, the Alzheimer’s Association, the Kidney Foundation, plus numerous churches and caregiver and disease-specific support groups, HMC also supports local vendors and services using a competitive bidding system. As a notfor-profit, the organization’s commitment to serving the community, regardless of ability to pay, means its charitable contributions have totalled more than $2,900,000 over the last five years. The hospice’s mandate is to provide service to anyone who is eligible, regardless of financial or physical situation, caring for those who are indigent, undocumented or homeless, as well as those who are fully insured. There is no difference in the approach or quality of care, and moving forward, maintaining and bettering this will remain the firm’s ongoing focus.
Since it evolved from an all-volunteer agency in the 1980s into a highly skilled multidisciplinary team of professionals, HMC has striven to meet the needs of the dying with holistic support not only for patients but also for families, friends and neighbors. HMC’s excellence has been recognized with Deemed Status by the Joint Commission, the national gold standard in healthcare quality and safety.

“TrendHR was originally built upon on the traditional staffing company model specializing in temporary and direct hire placement.

TrendHR provides human resource functions, such as administering employee benefits, insurance, payroll, taxes, help with the ever increasing burden of governmental and regulatory compliance and numerous other employee related services that allow business owners to focus on the most important thing; growing their business. That is even in our trademarked tagline; “Do what you do best and let Trend handle the rest.” All these services are provided through
economies of scale of putting together tens of thousands of employees together creating tremendous cost savings compared to the expense of selfadministering such programs or competitors. We offer a complete suite of Human Resource Outsourcing services, in addition to premium Customer Service to ensure we meet the clients’ individual needs. “Central to our approach is the fact that we focus on meeting the needs of each individual client. Not all clients are the same and they do not require the same support. We partner with our clients to assist them in reaching their goals, and this will remain our ongoing focus as we seek to build upon our current achievements going forward.”
Fundamentally, the firm is unique thanks to its commitment to providing clients with the very
