After a year building extraordinary inventory and perfecting technological advancements, Brian Froelich, the travel executive and chairman of JDB Fine Hotels and Resorts, introduced a website that includes a platform, which streamlines the booking process and expedites agent compensation.
“As we move deeper into the second decade of the 2000s,” announced Froelich, “it is becoming more and more apparent that discerning customers require and demand expertise to navigate the tremendous amounts of online information.”
With first-hand knowledge of each four-to five-star independent hotel in Italy and France, JDB is the resource for partner agents, enabling them to match the right client to the right accommodation. Additionally, member hotels offer guests exclusive amenities such as upgrades, spa treatments, a free night’s stay and luxury transfers. JDB is also expanding specialized excursions and art exhibitions, such as artist Christo “The Floating Piers” project, which will be unveiled in June 2016 in the Lombardy Region.
The sales, marketing and reservations company currently represents 63 properties that meet exacting standards of quality and character. JDB expects to add 14 new hotels over the next few months and projects reaching 100 by yearend.
