How to make a hotel jewellery collection fly!

This month we helped Hotel atSIX to take its exclusive jewellery collection to the next level. We did this by introducing them to one of our much loved Influencer Jennifer Berg (36k) who modeled the collection inside the hotel. 

The HotelEtail video production team then made several videos to promote the collection which also does a great job at showing off the amazing interiors and expensive art inside Hotel atSIX. These videos will be featured in the hotels online store (operated by HotelEtail) and also on Facebook and Instagram to drive sales of the jewellery collection.

"This collaboration with HotelEtail and Jennifer has attracted attention at a time when were are building our reputation in the market. This video campaign has proved very cost effective and has attracted a lot of extra attention via Jennifer's large social audience" - Niel Swart, eCommerce Manager, Hotel atSIX. 

Look out for future retailer partnerships that drive awareness online for your beautiful hotel.

Here is what our customers say....

3 new brands join the HotelEtail family!

We're kicking into the summer with some great news for our hotel retail market - three new designers have joined the HotelEtail family.  We are happy to welcome Hyde's Spectacles, Bolinder Stockholm and Lumitoro into our family and introduce them to thousands of hotel guests.

At HotelEtail we are constant on the look out for the hottest designers on the market to introduce them to hotel guests from around the world. 

  • Hyde's Spectacles - inspired by the literary work of R.L. Stevenson, Hyde's spectacles were born out of a concept of changing image perceptions - where spectacles add to one's personality, enriching his everyday experience in interaction with others.

  • Bolinder Stockholm is what happens when Upper East Side meets Swedish Grace. Handcrafted, in a true labor of love, using fine Nappa leather and superb artisanal craftsmanship, these wearable pieces of art blend contemporary functionality with an innovative yet timeless design.

  • Lumitoro - crafted by designer Roberto Chaves, is the ultimate fusion of art and science in jewellery - where a designer’s intuitive touch meets the precision of 3D printing technology.

We helped one of the UK's best resorts take their spa & golf retail online

Imagine you've had a lovely spa treatment. You discovered a new product for your face. However you don't want to carry the cream in your hand luggage through the airport. You also need a place to repurchase the product once it runs out in a few months.

Well this is not a problem for The Grove guests. They can go to The Grove's branded online shop experience (operated by HotelEtail) and purchase their items online and ship them directly to their home.

Now that's the kind of service hotel guests in 2017 expect.

Not sure guests will shop with you online? Here is a recent live order for a guest. 

Hotel guest buys the shower tiles...

Sometimes hotels are unsure if their guests would buy interiors & gifts from their online shop!  Perhaps they didn't notice the way we all shop in 2017? It is not rocket science. We now discover and shop things 24/7. 

Check out below the guest at Haymarket who fell in love with the tiles in their hotel shower. They went to the hotels online shop and purchased 2 sets of tiles for their own home. The tiles arrived in just 5 days. Oh and in the future when their friends ask about these tiles, they will talk intimately your hotel.  Sound like a lot of work? Not really as we can take care of it all...! For more email info@hoteletail.com

Greta Garbo Masterpiece painted on Facebook Live in Stockholm hotel.

It might not be the first place you would expect to see a painting being created. But the guests at Haymarket by Scandic were amazed this weekend when they found the artist Peter Eugen Nilsson creating a masterpiece in the hotel lobby. The event was also being watched by thousands around the world on Facebook Live. 

It took Peter, a rising Stockholm artist, almost 8 hours to paint Greta, the Hollywood icon who once worked in the building in the 1920’s. 

Before he had applied the final brush strokes he had already received significant offers for his creation. “I love to create in front of people, it is a real thrill” explains Peter. “At one point a small child came over and asked if she could help. I gave her the brush and she made her mark”.

Sophie Linnusaar, PR & Marketing Manager at Haymarket by Scandic. “HotelEtail enable us meet the needs of the modern hotel guest, by creating interactive retail experiences like this live Greta painting which was watched Live by over 3,500 of our Facebook fans. It’s OMNI channel retail for hotels!”.
