Otta's take on Hotel Engine

Sam Franklin headshot

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

Travel is an essential part of running operations for both enterprises and essential services. However, short-term rental prices are generally targeted towards leisure travel, resulting in providing accommodation for traveling workforces becoming expensive and complicated for employers.

Hotel Engine provides a hotel booking and management platform with a target audience of workforces, aiming to make the process of booking such arrangements simpler and more affordable. The company provides a dashboard for the management and analysis of business travel lodging, in addition to providing discounted prices for large groups and essential sectors such as healthcare.

The Denver-based company is now used by hundreds of thousands of individual members across over 185 countries. Having now achieved 'unicorn' status, Hotel Engine, which is profitable, can expect to see continued growth having placed its unique services at the heart of this currently evolving industry.
