Choice Hotels Inter­na­tion­al, Inc. is one of the largest lodg­ing fran­chisors in the world. Choice and its affil­i­ates have over 6,800 fran­chised hotels open and under devel­op­ment in the con­ti­nen­tal Unit­ed States, and more than 350 in Canada.

Whis­tle brings an inte­grat­ed, con­tact­less mes­sag­ing expe­ri­ence to Choice’s port­fo­lio of brands which include Ascend Hotel Col­lec­tion®, Cam­bria® Hotels, Com­fort®, Sleep Inn®, Qual­i­ty Inn®, Clar­i­on®, Clar­i­on Pointe®, Main­Stay Suites®, Ever­home Suites ®TM , Wood­Spring Suites®, Sub­ur­ban Extend­ed Stay Hotel®, Econo Lodge®, and Rode­way Inn.® Choice fran­chisees now have instant access to Whistle’s arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence, robust fea­tures, and renowned client suc­cess team.

With this part­ner­ship, Whis­tle now auto­mat­i­cal­ly syncs with ChoiceAD­VAN­TAGE, Choice’s pro­pri­etary prop­er­ty man­age­ment sys­tem, in order to relay all rel­e­vant infor­ma­tion about guests and their stay to the hotel. Not only can hotel staff save time, but Whis­tle will engage with guests in per­son­al­ized ways to enhance the guest experience.

Whis­tle CEO and Co-Founder, Christo­pher Hov­aness­ian says, “Dur­ing the pan­dem­ic, Whis­tle has helped thou­sands of hote­liers keep their doors open through our soft­ware. Our core offer­ings, includ­ing mes­sag­ing, have always been con­tact­less in nature, but now more than ever it is cru­cial for hotels as the indus­try looks to lim­it high-con­tact interactions.”

Whis­tle has been HUGE for us. We have begun record­ing train­ing and video mes­sages for safe­ty train­ing, and send­ing impor­tant links via Whis­tle direct mes­sag­ing. This is the most impor­tant thing for us. Peo­ple now have dai­ly access to us and are more acces­si­ble to our teams.
