SilverDoor has launched a new API bringing together serviced accommodation content, aggregated from more than 2,600 individual global operators.
This offering allows direct comparison between hotels and serviced accommodation, including comparisons between nightly rates, facilities and carbon emissions.
Once connected, clients will be able to view this on their own platforms and either enquire or instant book accommodation via the SilverDoor Booking API. The SilverDoor Analytics API also fetches booking and spending data with real-time accuracy.
SilverDoor’s Chief Information and Technology Officer, Hanish Vithal, said: “Due to its customisable, robust and secure build, we can work with any client’s own technology to make the offering bespoke to them. This ensures the API fits the client’s workflow, making the process seamless and simple for both travel managers and travellers.”
Pauline Houston, SilverDoor’s Senior Vice President Business Development, added: “The message from our clients has been clear for a long time: if serviced accommodation wants to compete with hotels, they need to exist in the same spaces, offer live rates, and have seamless, instant booking technology. This API brings the SilverDoor portfolio squarely into those spaces and is instantly available to view and book alongside hotel rooms.”
The latest initiative follows the agency’s recent launch of its Carbon Calculator tool, allowing bookers to compare carbon emissions data for serviced accommodation.
