Calgary, AB – August 29, 2023 – WebRezPro cloud property management system for independent hotels and resorts has expanded its partnership with Lightspeed, a unified point-of-sale and payments platform, to offer direct integration with Lightspeed Retail. Adding to existing connections with Lightspeed Restaurant and Lightspeed Golf solutions, the new integration automatically posts gift shop and other hotel retail charges to reservations, simplifying point-of-sale transactions for a seamless guest experience.

Powering the world’s best businesses, Lightspeed is the unified POS and payments platform for ambitious entrepreneurs to accelerate growth, provide the best customer experiences and become a go-to destination in their space.  Integrated with the hotel's property management system, Lightspeed's point-of-sale and payments solution enables a frictionless payment experience across the entire stay for guests and staff.

Through the expanded partnership, which now includes integration with Lightspeed Retail as well as the newest version of Lightspeed Restaurant, WebRezPro and Lightspeed empower hoteliers to simplify billing and improve the guest experience whether guests dine, golf, or shop on-site during their stay.

“We’re delighted to continue to expand our integration with WebRezPro,” said Peter Dougherty, GM of Hospitality at Lightspeed. “Increased automation saves merchants time and streamlines the posting process so our merchants can focus on what matters most: their guests.” 

The seamless connections automate the process of posting restaurant, retail, and golf charges to reservation folios, improving administrative workflow, the customer experience, and billing accuracy. Through the integration, Lightspeed verifies a guest’s occupancy status and room number in WebRezPro, then automatically posts charges to the guest’s room.

“We’re excited to expand our partnership with Lightspeed to bring our customers our first retail POS integration,” said Frank Verhagen, founder and president of World Web Technologies Inc., the company behind WebRezPro. “With Lightspeed, we’ve been streamlining restaurant and golf course point-of-sale experiences for our clients and their guests since 2017, and we’re delighted to extend the same seamless connection to hotel retail outlets, empowering lodging operators to deliver a frictionless stay throughout that generates even more ancillary revenues.”

Capital Idea - How to Create and Maintain Financial Strength in Unstable Times

You need a durable hotel or resort in a strong and growing market. Equally important is the deal structure. You have your debt lined up but not all the equity, or your investors are “in”, but debt costs are 50% higher than a year ago. And now to be competitive, you must renovate, maybe even rebrand. Hear what it takes to pull a deal together in today’s capital constrained markets.

Artificial Intelligence - It was me, or was it?

We are using it enthusiastically, even before we fully understand its power and potential. Well, that may sound a bit ominous, it isn’t meant to. Remarkably, industrial applications are leading this nascent period of AI adoption, and this asks the question-how are hotels successfully using AI in their business and operations? This session will tell you what you need to know.

The Hyatt Regency Vancouver has been designated as the official host hotel for the 2023 Western Canadian Lodging Conference.

[Greenport, NY, August 22, 2023] Oshibori hot towel on arrival. Breathtaking views from a rooftop deck and bar overlooking the coastline; ideal for morning coffee and yoga classes, oyster shucking, fireside S’more’s, and evening cocktails. Galley kitchens on each floor featuring local eats and pastries that are re-stocked three times a day.

An open-air Moke electric house car at guests’ disposal to transport them to local farms, restaurants, wineries/vineyards, breweries/distilleries, private boating/sailing charters, and pottery/art classes.

These are the unique and upscale experiences that today’s travelers say they want and appreciate – and it is why The Menhaden was named “Best Hotel of the North Fork” for a second consecutive year.

Mario Corrado, general manager of the independent luxury boutique hotel located in the heart of Greenport Village on the Long Island Sound coastline – a quick ride from NYC by ferry, train, Jitney, boat, or car – said the hotel is flourishing and setting the standard for luxury boutiques hotels across the country and the pond. 

“Our goal is to become a destination for travelers everywhere,” Corrado said. “Earning this title last year put The Menhaden on the map; we began seeing a large uptick in visitors coming from outside NYC. Guests were visiting us from all over New England, the tri-state area, and even Europe. Maintaining this honor for a second year, we expect this trend to continue. Even the shoulder months will feel like busy season with booking showing no signs of slowing.”

Rooms and suites at The Menhaden are dressed to impress, with a chic palette of whites, blacks, and neutrals, Restoration Hardware furnishings, high-thread-count linens, spacious bathrooms, and other tasteful detailing. Yet it’s the curated experiences that are truly making this elegant “cottage by the sea” a destination that people crave. 

Experiences for Everyone

Guests of The Menhaden can be Oyster Farmers one day and Whiskey Thievers or Wine Makers the next. Through partnerships with local businesses, such as Matchbook Distilling and the North Fork Art Center, the hotel is continually developing new packages that will take experiential travel to new heights.

For example, a new “Midweek Maker” program is enabling guests to learn how to properly nose and taste spirits and dive into the science of distilling. Monday through Thursday, now through December 27, 2023, guests can tour Matchbook Distilling’s Apothecary, then blend their own hand-crafted 750 ml bottle of gin to take home. Soon the hotel will announce fall programs with NFAC – a place where people can come together to be entertained, educated, and inspired by world cinema, live performances, fine art exhibitions, lecture series, and hands-on arts training.

Proud Owners & Operational Excellence

Owned by Atlantic Equity Partners and managed by Meyer Jabara Hotels (MJH), The Menhaden is located at 207 Front St. Considered by many to be a “hidden gem,” guests’ say they “would not think twice to book this place again and again.”

"It's an incredible honor for one of our independent hotels to earn this prestigious award,” said Justin Jabara, President of Meyer Jabara Hotels. “The recognition motivates our team to strive for hospitality excellence. I commend our associates for continuing to make The Menhaden an extraordinary place to stay."
