Switch.

For new and existing hotels

Please send your activation requests according to the hotel's Region. The hotelier should inform their account manager that they would like to connect with SmartHOTEL. They should adjust the settings on their side so we can retrieve the mapping.

It is important that the channel manager rate option at Metglobal side is set at per-pax and not at per-room. Otherwise, the rate update will not be accepted.

Once we activate a connection please inform the Metglobal connection team by email

Activation and information can be requested from regional teams. Please ask the SmartHOTEL team for the email.

Credentials.

Who provides what?

Only pincode is required which is the hotel id of the hotel at Metglobal.

Mapping.

Multiple room & multiple rate mapping is supported.  Only the Standard Column needs to be mapped.

The prices for other occupancies will be automatically sent towards Metglobal.

Room & pricing details:

On HotelsPro (Metglobal) a hotel can be set on two different pricing types: Room pricing and occupancy pricing. The hotel must be set up as occupancy based pricing otherwise the connection cannot be completed. Occupancy pricing is most commonly in use at Hotelpro.

Children rates (child & infant) & extra person rates are supported if they are pushed by the PMS to the Channel Manager.

Room Set up in Metglobal

It is essential that the rooms are configured in Metglobal to match the pricing that is sent by the property.

For example, a hotel that has a room set up with Max Occupancy 3 with the Extra Person field filled in, this needs to be configured as a Max Occupancy 4 in Metglobal, allowing a maximum of 3 Adults
