On November 11, 2013, InnSuites Hotels and Roomer Travel (www.roomertravel.com) announced a marketing agreement for consumers to easily sell their nonrefundable hotel rooms to buyers at a reduced cost. The patrons who sell their nonrefundable hotel room recoup a portion of their purchase, while the person who buys that same room obtains it at a discounted price. This allows InnSuites properties to maintain occupancy rates and ensure added revenue from ancillary food and beverage services, which would otherwise be lost if the room remained unoccupied.
