Leonardo Hotels UK & Ireland (formerly Jurys Inn), today announces the launch of its new online booking service, Instant Meetings, to provide customers with a simple and seamless booking journey for hotel meeting rooms.

One of the few hotel chains to provide this service, and powered by MeetingPackage, Leonardo Hotels’ Instant Meetings service allows customers to check live availability and prices of meeting rooms online, view and select their favourite meeting spaces, choose additional food and beverage options and receive instant booking confirmation. Customers can also manage their booking online following receipt of confirmation and make any additional changes if required. Payments can be made via a Credit Card too.

Suitable for up to 50 delegates, Instant Meetings is available throughout the majority of Leonardo Hotels in the UK & Ireland by simply visiting leonardohotels.co.uk/meetings.

Built for flexibility, all Leonardo Hotels’ meeting rooms feature bright and stylish rooms with LCD projection screens and plasma TVs, adaptable modular furniture, complimentary high-speed WiFi and conveniently positioned phone and power points for a hassle-free set up.

Andy Besent, Head of Sales at Leonardo Hotels UK & Ireland, comments, “The development of our new Instant Meetings service, powered by MeetingPackage, will allow us to completely transform the customer experience and make the entire booking journey much simpler than ever before. We know that customers who book meeting rooms, either direct or via third party partners, are looking for a simple and seamless booking journey, and launching our new Instant Meetings service will allow us to meet these needs.

“Since using the product we’ve already seen a significant number of benefits to both our customers and hotel operations teams, especially when it comes to increasing speed and efficiency, and I would like to thank Joonas Ahola and his team at MeetingPackage for their support and patience in delivering such a complex project.”
