New York-based Luxury Agency Tracks Space at Hotels During Holiday Season


New York, New York (December 11, 2019) — The advisors at Tzell Travel Group pride themselves on going the extra mile for their travel clients. For that reason, Tzell created the “Festive Desk” to track hard-to-find hotel rooms for last-minute holiday requests.


Working closely with travel suppliers around the world, Tzell Travel tracks holiday availability, including cancellations, to meet clients’ increasingly last-minute needs. The desk is tallying availability for resorts and hotels, primarily in the Caribbean and Mexico but also Hawaii, Costa Rica and beyond.


“It’s a unique initiative to ensure Tzell advisors can serve their clients in the best way possible during the holiday season,” said Tzell Co-President Cindy Schlansky. “If there is no availability in the destination the client is seeking, our advisors can suggest the best possible alternatives or recommend to the client a time when there is more space and greater value.”


The Tzell Festive Desk, now in its second year, compiles availability from partner hotels and tour operators. Tzell also tracks minimum stay requirements which vary by resort, date of travel and room category.


“Our advisors are experts at sourcing the right experience for our clients, whether it be a resort, villa, city stay or tour,” said Monty Swaney, Co-President of Tzell.


He continued: “Travel has been strong this year and festive season surely reflects that, so the best option is to book far in advance to be assured of getting the best availability and price.” However, he noted, if a last-minute need arises, the best option is to contact a travel advisor. “At Tzell we arm our advisors with the most up-to-date information so they can proactively provide their clients with the best options for holiday travel,” Swaney said.


Tzell advisors suggest the following ideas for holiday travel. Note: All offers are subject to availability since space fluctuates.
