CORINTHIA Hotels International has announced a global agreement with global sales, marketing and distribution company SRS-WorldHotels, for the provision of worldwide sales, marketing and reservation distribution services.
The agreement incorporates 19 Corinthia hotels and resorts in Europe, the Mediterranean and Africa, and extends across SRS-WorldHotels worldwide portfolio comprising more than 450 hotels in 65 countries. Corinthia hotels are now available for sale through the SRS-Network, Global Distribution Systems and major online sites.
