NewspaperDirect and Starwood’s iconic group of hotels, The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts, have joined forces to provide the ND Press print on demand newspaper service at The Luxury Collection’s 60+ properties, worldwide.
Originally piloted at eight of the brand’s properties worldwide starting in August 2007, the ND Press service quickly received positive reviews from the properties and their guests alike. From that point, The Luxury Collection quickly agreed that our ND Press product went very much hand-in-hand with their industry-leading guest satisfaction initiatives, and began the process for implementing the print on demand service brand-wide. Today, NewspaperDirect is officially recognized as a partner of The Luxury Collection, and our ND Press service is proactively being offered to their valued guests as soon as they check in.
By implementing the ND Press service at each of its properties, The Luxury Collection is now able to assure their guests that they will always receive their favorite daily newspapers throughout their stay – and has ultimately raised the benchmark for superior customer service at luxury hotels. We are confident that many other leading hotel groups will quickly follow suit to also set the precedence at their own properties by implementing the ND Press and Hotel PressDisplay services for their guests.
Providing more than just the local news is quickly becoming a vital part to the guest’s experience. Today with thousands of hotels worldwide already offering our ND Press and Hotel PressDisplay services, guests are now coming to expect their hometown newspapers each time they check-in and stay connected to the daily news around the world.
