What they do: Hotels routinely overbook to make up for no-shows and cancellations, meaning that they will sometimes have to place an overbooked guest to another hotel, a process done by phone that can take over an hour. Roomstorm creates a digital marketplace for hotels to buy and sell rooms, reducing the time it takes to place a guest from hours to just minutes.
Why it's a big deal: An empty room is a loss for a hotel, so filling that room as soon as possible is a hotel’s number one priority. Roomstorm helps hotels fill those empty rooms, makes finding rooms for overbooked hotels quick and painless and helps guests get settled faster. During city-wide sellouts, such as during a baseball game, the Roomstorm marketplace regularly still has rooms available when everyone else does not. This creates a premium market for high-demand rooms during peak times and helps hotels keep these rooms filled during those times.
