Making the Complicated,
Hotel owners and General Managers wear many hats and when it comes to sales, knowing where to start can be overwhelming.
How do you know where to look for new business? How do you find and get to the decision maker? How do you effectively persuade an informed buyer to stay with you? How do you lead with value and not rates to differentiate your hotel in a sea of brands?
It starts with hiring the best in the business.

Some of Our Clients
Proudly Serving Clients throughout US & Canada
As a Management company with 4 smaller hotels in busy transient markets, we have struggled to keep our sales and marketing costs relative to the size of our hotel. The cost and time invested in attracting, training and retaining good sales people with the current job climate can be not only daunting but frustrating with turnover. With varying demand in the market, a sales manager needs to recognize when to take the business, and when to say no to it. The right rate, at the right time!
We have solved all of these problems through turning this demanding role in 3 of our hotels over to Gillis Sales.
Gillis is a trusted, credible partner who has supplied me with experienced professionals who know the bookers, agencies and fastest route to the business I need. Working with our team they take and convert leads, prospect the right clients and expedite what can be a long and drawn out process to quick revenues. This has become our most effective resource, and I am happy to say that I 100% recommend the Gillis solution to my colleagues who don't want to oversee and motivate a sales team!
