LivingSocial Escapes Books More Than 500,000 Room Nights

Washington  (Profitable.com)   From boutique city-market hotels to beautiful resorts in tropical destinations, LivingSocial Escapes has announced that it has booked more than a half million room nights at nearly 800 properties around the world since its launch in November 2010.  On a monthly basis, the company has sold an average of 45,500 room nights and put 1,500 heads in beds each night.

“Inspiring our members to book more than a half million room nights in less than a year is exciting and a true testament to the power of actually telling destination and travel brand stories, and selling package experiences,” said Doug Miller, senior vice president, LivingSocial New Initiatives.  “We work hard on getting people out from behind their computer screens and into new experiences.  Whether it’s a quick weekend away or the trip of a lifetime, we create travel demand and bring new high-quality travelers to our hotel and travel partners.”

To give the number some perspective, 500,000 room nights is:

  • More than triple the total number of hotel rooms in Las Vegas, one of the world’s largest hotel markets;
  • Equal to roughly 10.4% of the nation’s total 4.8 million hotel rooms;
  • The equivalent of selling out all the rooms in Charleston, South Carolina for more than a month; or
  • Like booking every hotel room in Niagara Falls, New York for nearly a year.
