Hotel Engine Named Start-Up Business of the Year
The Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce recognized the company as one of seven local leaders at its annual Business Awards.

DENVER (April 2018) – Hotel Engine, a private hotel booking platform, is proud to receive the 2018 Start-Up Business of the Year award by the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce. Every year, the Chamber recognizes new, emerging, and fast-growing businesses that infuse the spirit of entrepreneurism and advance fresh ideas in their respective industries. These awards commend the local organizations that are writing Denver’s next chapter in business.

Since 2014, Denver-based Hotel Engine has built a worldwide inventory of wholesale hotel rates unavailable to the public. The invite-only platform saves its members an average of 26% off public rates, as well as offers a full suite of free expense management tools and a unique loyalty program, HE Rewards. This makes it an ideal resource for businesses, organizations, and their traveling affliates—both as a tool for managing hotel spend and as an exclusive employee/member perk.

The Chamber held its annual Business Awards Luncheon on April 27 to announce the winners of seven categories: small business, start-up business, green business, small nonprofit, large nonprofit, and minority or woman-owned business. The Hotel Engine team was humbled to receive the recognition from such a supportive and thriving community as the Denver metro area.

“Our vision is to be the most loved hotel booking site on earth,” says Carlos Abisambra, Chief Strategy Officer at Hotel Engine. “That’s our guiding light for everything, from our customer service to products, features, and anything that we launch.”

The privately owned and founder-led company has grown to serve more than 12,500 businesses, including 23 of the Fortune 100. Looking forward, Hotel Engine will continue growing its exclusive savings and partnering with both local and national organizations, including nonprofits such as the American Cancer Society and the American Red Cross.
