IBC Hotels, a supplemental low-cost branding and reservations revenue channel now services 3,100 independent hotel properties.
"IBC is bringing back the simple cost effective 10% Travel Agent Commission. A branded network for Independent Hotels, we support independent hotel owners who are tired of overpaying for cookie-cutter hotel franchise fees" says Pamela Barnhill, President of IBC Hotels. "IBC Hotels is a rapidly growing network of like-minded independent hotel owners working together referring business to each other and working together on mutual technology support for shared success."
The InnDependent Boutique Collection (IBC) hotel system serves domestic and international travelers who want something that's different, unique, and local while expecting an exceptionally clean hotel with friendly service and a key established seasoned location. IBC helps independent hoteliers build credibility, occupancy and rate with IBC's game-changing model for hotel ownership with free customer-facing marketing and free travel rewards program called InnDependent InnCentives (IBC absorbs the cost so it is free to both IBC Hotels and IBC Guests).
The IBC logo is displayed behind the front desk to tell guests that they are at a hotel, which meets the standard of a large independent international network of truly unique hotels. In addition to the first impression on the IBC booking site, member hotels make a great first personal impression in the IBC hotel lobby. Many IBC hotels have extra flowers, bright decor, updated accent wall colors, simplicity with unique furnishings, flat screen TVs and background music to give an initial warm flavor.
IBC is working with Independent Lodging Industry Association (ILIA) and Asian American Hotel Owners Association (AAHOA) to bring awareness to not only their members but to all independent hotels with a new marketing campaign of Stay Independent, Get Rewarded to drive customer bookings.
