Myrtle Beach Hotel Site Offers Alternative Through Social Media

Myrtle Beach, SC (PRWEB) March 7, 2011

Myrtle Beach, SC  will launch a new website on Monday, March 7th  that uses social media to help Myrtle Beach hotel owners keep 100% of their own last minute reservations.

“Many hotels now depend more and more on travel sites like Hotels dot com and Expedia to rent last minute unsold inventory,” said Britt El-Kheddiwi. “If you have seen their recent commercials stating, “It's great to wait”, then you know what these sites are training their customers to do. Unfortunately, it's not great for our client hotel owners to get rentals last minute that they have to pay travel sites a 30% commission on.”

Myrtle Beach Hotels will find relief in of all places, social media. [ will work from the Myrtle Beach Facebook Page through a tab called THIS FRIDAY. “THIS FRIDAY will be published each Monday through the Myrtle Beach Video feed,” El-Kheddiwi added. “The feed will tell our over 16 million tourist post views on Facebook about member hotels' last minute specials available on the upcoming Friday of each week. What our member hotels love about THIS FRIDAY is the opportunity to rent their last minute rooms at rates they control. They also get their money up front directly from the client and do not have to pay the high commissions.”

The THIS FRIDAY tab will link directly from Facebook to “We hope to rent as many as ten empty rooms per hotel client in most weeks.” Said El-Kheddiwi. Myrtle Beach condos, Myrtle Beach resorts and Myrtle Beach vacation homes will be included in these special offers.

This service is included for all Myrtle Beach Facebook page hotel clients.
