How a Hackathon Led to Sabre’s First Generative AI Product for Hotels: A Customer-Service Chatbot

How a Hackathon Led to Sabre's First Generative AI Product for Hotels: A Customer-Service Chatbot

Skift Take

Generative AI is still young, but some travel companies are encouraging workers to experiment as they determine how the tech will be used in the future.

Sabre wanted to know how generative AI could improve the customer-service experience for hotel operators, so the company made that topic a category for an internal innovation competition last August.

One of those teams developed an idea for a customer-service chatbot, and the pitch to Sabre executives went smoothly. There was a prototype by October. 

And last month, that competition idea became Sabre’s first generative AI product for hoteliers. 

“That’s nine months from idea to deliverable product. That only really happened because we’re giving the team flexibility, the opportunity to experiment with these new tools and these new ideas and bring them forward,” said Scott Wilson, president of Sabre Hospitality, in an interview with Skift.

The chatbot tool is called Concierge.AI.

It was designed to answer hotel operators’ questions about any of Sabre’s products without them having to pick up the phone. The generative AI essentially has access to all of the training materials for Sabre’s hotel software products. The hotelier can ask the chatbot a question in everyday language, and then the chatbot draws upon the training materials to provide an answer. 

The Sabre customer service team also uses the tool when hoteliers call, which Wilson said can be especially useful for new call center agents. 

“It’s a strong double-digit reduction in calls and call time. So fewer people are coming to call at all because they can self-help completely, or if they do call because they didn’t use the tool, our agents are able to use the tools themselves,” Wilson said.

“Call centers have turnover anywhere, and so you can get a new agent and have their level of productivity go up many [times]. That’s been a huge gain for us.”

The prototype had an accuracy rate of about 75%, Wilson said. By the time of the release, the tool’s answers were accurate around 93% of the time, he claimed – though Skift hasn’t tested the product. The AI comes from Sabre’s ongoing partnership with Google, which has the Gemini generative AI model.

How Sabre’s Hackathons Work

Google famously encourages employees to spend about one day per week experimenting with tech. Sabre doesn’t have anything that formal, Wilson said, but its couple of hackathon events each year are meant to encourage innovation.

Sabre started the G-Blitz competition — where Concierge.AI was born — in 2021. Participants from across Sabre’s six main offices worldwide select teams of around five people, and they’ve given free reign to develop and pitch a product within one of three categories. The project can be focused on tech or a new idea around policy or market approach. 

The latest competition had 40 teams and more than 200 participants. 

At the end of the work session, the top projects are invited to pitch their ideas to Sabre executives. Winners get credits toward items in an employee gift catalog. Three of the winners recently presented their ideas to the tech committee of the Sabre board of directors. 

There’s likely more to come with Concierge.AI, Wilson said. With future advancements, the tool could complete tasks for the customer instead of just sharing information, he said. Some hotels have asked about the possibility of licensing the product as a guest-facing tool, though he did not say if there are plans for that.

“There’s a real opportunity to take this Concierge.ai concept and turn into … self-help on steroids,” Wilson said.

“Marriott’s Tina Edmundson Discusses the Future of Luxury Travel: Hotels, Yachts, Chatbots, and Trends in Luxury Hospitality”

"Marriott's Tina Edmundson Discusses the Future of Luxury Travel: Hotels, Yachts, Chatbots, and Trends in Luxury Hospitality"

As the newly appointed President of Luxury at Marriott International, Edmundson reveals what’s next for the world’s largest hotel operator.

When it comes to C-Suite leadership in hospitality, Tina Edmundson is a name you need to know. Clocking more than 16 years at Marriott, she joined amid the company’s 2016 acquisition of Starwood Hotels & Resorts, making it the largest hotel company in the world. It now comprises 30 brands, and operates approximately 9,000 properties.

In a brick and mortar business, it’s hard to see how Marriott could get much bigger. That’s where luxury steps in. It’s seen as the ‘bright spot’ growth engine in hospitality, which puts Edmundson, promoted last year to become Marriott’s President of Luxury, squarely in the hot seat. She now oversees eight brands, including St. Regis, Ritz-Carlton, Ritz-Carlton Reserve, Bulgari Hotels, Edition, Luxury Collection, JW Marriott, and W Hotels.

Raised in Mumbai, India, Edmundson graduated with a finance degree from the University of Bombay, and then moved to the U.S. to pursue her MBA in hotel and restaurant administration at the University of Houston’s Conrad N. Hilton college. Having worked in hospitality all her life, she’s seen just about everything there is to see in the hotel business. In this interview, she shares her outlook for the future of luxury travel:


What are three major trends shaping your business?

It sounds cliché at this point, but the pandemic changed everything. People shifted their mindset around travel. Bucket lists became to-do lists. We’re not waiting, because we don’t know what the future holds.

With that, wellness travel has become so important. I’m not just talking about spas; I’m talking about holistic wellbeing — mind, body and soul. If they’re working and traveling, consumers want to blend both work and wellness. They want to make sure that from a nutrition, movement and meditation perspective that they have facilities, and we have hotels that do that quite well. We have a hotel in Cabo, for example, called the Ritz Carlton Zadún. They have this great experience where they provide ancient healing, spa rituals, and mindful practices. Guests can go there and get all of that, but also just be on the beach with their family.

Sustainability is also critically important. So, the second major trend is what we call ethical escapes, where the customer is interested in sustainable practices. They want to do business with companies that give back to the environment and the community. Particularly Gen Z and millennials, they’re much more in-tune to that trend and it’s shaping their choices.

Do customers just say they want sustainability, or are they really spending money on it?

There are two parts to this. One is, the individual traveler is hard to pin down. Because they say things like: I want low flow showers, but they really don’t. They want a good shower. So that part is hard to track. What we are seeing, though, is clear demand from group customers. More often than not, I would say 80% of the time, that when a company is sourcing a group booking, it will ask for a report card on the sustainability practices of that hotel. So the hotels are incentivized to do it.

The third trend is experiential travel. Customers want more than just average F&B and a nice room; they’re looking for once-in-a-lifetime experiences and events that are unavailable elsewhere. For instance, we do pop-ups with fashion brands. The W Verbier hotel had a Valentino pop-up over Christmas time, which was wonderful because Valentino got to showcase their spring line. The St Regis in Venice did a partnership with Ginori 1735 during the Venice Film Festival last year, and they took over the garden overlooking the Grand Canal. It was just stunning.

Are you seeing big moves into ultra-luxury?

Absolutely. We’re seeing a lot of interest, and it’s become a really important asset class from an investor perspective. It’s why we launched the Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection. Our first vessel, Evrima, has been sailing for over a year. It’s effectively a Ritz Carlton at sea and it is all-inclusive. Our second yacht, Ilma, will set sail in September. The third will come on board in July 2025. Getting into the ultra luxury yachting space has been quite interesting for us, because 50% of the customers on our yacht are actually new to cruising.

Cruising is a big choice for Marriott; but this is not a mega cruise ship.

Right. At 149 keys, the most people you can have on the ship is 300. And it’s totally manageable, because the vessel is not dense at all. You can always find a quiet place to read a book and relax, or whatever. We’re super excited about that.

Another growth area is adventure travel, which is lodges and tented camps. These are the bucket list trips people are finally taking. We just opened our JW Marriott Masai Mara earlier this year, and we have several others signed as well.

Your partnership with Bulgari is another ultra-luxury move, no?

The partnership with Bulgari happened more than 20 years ago, before my time. But it’s been a wonderful venture; It’s their brand, their vision and design, but we manage the hotels. Bulgari is growing, which, to your point on ultra luxury, has become even more important. In that vein, we also have a brand called the Ritz Carlton Reserve, with seven open hotels in exotic, far flung places. The most recent one we opened is in Saudi Arabia, called Nujuma. The hotels tend to be on the smaller side; no more than 75 to 80 rooms or suites with extensive wellness facilities and a very high level of service.

Where in the world do you see the most promising growth opportunities?

In the luxury group, we have 513 open and operating luxury hotels, with 234 hotels in the pipeline. From a growth perspective, it’s an exciting time. We still see opportunity in primary markets, because each of our brands serve a different purpose for a traveler. (You go to W for a different reason than a Ritz Carlton.) But secondary markets have become quite interesting, like Charlotte, Savannah, Austin. It doesn’t always have to be New York and London and Tokyo. Because the customer is also visiting Kyoto and Nikko. We monitor demand and the developers are as well. If the secondary market can support those rates and that type of customer — then we should have product for that.

Is it growth for growth’s sake?

No. Well, we’re a growth company. We just are. But in luxury, it is not growth for growth’s sake. It is measured and considered and it has to match the brand that we’re putting forward. Otherwise, I think you’re going to disappoint the customer. We are quite customer-centric, making sure that we are growing in places our customer wants to be.

How do you modernize a traditional luxury hotel stay?

To me, number one is being thoughtful about design and architecture. So we have a list of approved designers and architects that we constantly vet to make sure that we are providing physical environments for our guests that are quite appealing.

The second is immersive programming. What is really interesting about where this particular hotel is located and how hotels actually help a guest culturally immerse in that locality? We’ve got tons of examples. In Edition hotels, we have directors of culture and entertainment who are completely connected to the locale, and are able to bring in lectures or local artists to enhance the guest experience. And then finally, it’s about simplifying the guest experience by removing friction through technology — whether it’s Mobile Key or allowing people to chat on the app. Because a lot of people don’t like to talk anymore!

So, it’s not VR headsets after all… Your Q1 earnings report states: “We are making great progress on the multi-year digital and technology transformation of our three major systems, reservations, property management and loyalty. Through this transformation, we expect to unlock new revenue opportunities.” My question is: Like what?

By actually being able to offer much more personalized service. Think about this: If I was driving into the hotel, and it’s eight o’clock at night. And the hotel sent me a text and said: I see you’re coming in late. Here’s our in-room dining menu. Is there something from the menu that you’d like? I’d probably buy it. Or, we have a Cabernet from Paso Robles that we know you like and it’s waiting for you. That’s delightful. Or, you’re here on vacation and I know that you love a deep tissue massage: we have these slots available. I mean, come on, I know you’re going to do it, Jennifer!

I’m so predictable! So, that is gathering data and creating a profile.

It’s creating the profile, but the technology should allow us to do it faster and with more precision. At the right time.

Your systems have to talk to each other.

Exactly. That’s part of the benefit of being a loyalty member, because we have your preferences, we know what you like.

I like my initials stitched on my pillow, Tina. How do you develop new tech?

We have multiple vendors. We don’t build it ourselves; we’re buying technology from others and customizing the portions that we need to customize in order to deliver the experience we want to deliver.

Many hotel apps have chatbots now, which are enhanced with artificial intelligence. Are you getting into that space?

We are looking at it right now, for sure.

Tech in the short-term rental space is helping platforms book more guests and smooth out operations. Is this something you’re worried about?

If you’re a good business person, you have to worry about everything. It is a very specific market. We have a product called Homes and Villas by Marriott Bonvoy; it hosts about 160,000 homes on a website where customers can earn and redeem their points.

So, you are in the short term rental space.

Yes, but we’re very specific. We don’t do couch surfing, and all of that. We are only in the premium and luxury space in short term rentals. The other product that we have is branded residential. Many of our luxury hotels have residences attached. When an owner buys a residence, many times they want to put their residence in a rental program. Customers can either rent a branded residential product that is attached to the hotel, or they can rent a ‘Home and Villa’ which is somebody’s home that they’ve put on our platform. [Approximately 20% of the Luxury Group by Marriott International’s business is branded residential real estate.]

Am I worried about it? No, but we watch the space closely. We think that there is a purpose for which that product is the right solution. We want to keep our customers within our ecosystem, and give them every experience in travel they need. We don’t want them to have a reason to leave us.

Everyone is looking for ways to have direct bookings on their brand’s sites. What are some cutting edge ways you can do that?

Digital marketing is the way forward, which includes social media. Social commerce is so critically important, because consumers are influenced when their friends are posting content that they engage with. That’s really the wave of the future. People are not looking at your paid advertising message and deciding to come to you. That’s more of an awareness builder. But when you think about lower funnel marketing, it’s more effective in luxury than it is for some of the other brands because we are not discount driven. That’s not what it’s about. What you’re trying to do is create desire for your brand that is prompting people to buy.

Speaking of that, you partnered with Taylor Swift for the Era’s tour. You’re part of the Swift Effect.

Absolutely! You can talk about the Swift effect. You can talk about White Lotus. What we’re seeing in media and entertainment is driving travel. People are traveling more now for concerts and sports games than they ever had before. I mean, talk about trends. It’s hard to name just three because there’s so many. And you’ve got to have your irons in all of those fires.

What Can Be Done About Inconsiderate Marijuana Smokers Infiltrating Non-Smoking Hotels?

What Can Be Done About Inconsiderate Marijuana Smokers Infiltrating Non-Smoking Hotels?

It’s unbelievable to witness, and experience firsthand, the quickly growing trend of inconsiderate marijuana smoking in “non-smoking” hotels, even the high-end ones. Of the dozen or so I’ve booked over the past few years, at least two-thirds have had pot problems, sometimes so bad that I’ve literally packed up my stuff, headed down to the front desk and requested another room.

Sometimes I get one, sometimes I don’t. The hotel is booked solid, I’m told, and there is nothing they can do. “Just suck it up,” pun intended.

This past weekend, in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, at a well-known hotel chain, the pungent, all-too-familiar skunk oder suddenly began creeping into my seventh (top) floor room at around 9 p.m. I immediately complained to the desk downstairs, and was met with a fairly cavalier attitude. The clerk reluctantly gave me another room, after much insistence on my part, this time on the noisy second floor (I try to stay on top floors to minimize noise from above).

Not long afterward, unbelievably, the disgusting smell began to creep into my new room! Really? Where was it coming from? The people next door? The room below me? The hallway, the elevator? Luckily, I was able to close the door between the entrance foyer of my room and the bedroom to keep out the foul odor.

The canned excuse most hotels give when you complain is that they don’t know in which room the offender is, and they can’t very well knock on everyone’s door now, can they, especially late at night. Besides, they say, even if they’re able to identify the suspect’s room by sniffing outside of the door, they can’t prove it’s him/her unless they catch the idiot in the act of smoking.

I did some quick research on this, of course, and found that it’s not just me. Serious complaints abound on the Internet among the ratings of several major hotels.

More than 40 states have now legalized marijuana for “medicinal” or recreational purposes. This is pretty evident in the major cities in those states. San Francisco, for example, reeks of the stuff. Even in New York City, the Big Apple, it’s hard to find places where the skunk isn’t present.

I guess pot-heads are allowed to smoke outdoors now, but please, do it where you aren’t offending the other 99% of the population trying to breathe clean air. Can’t control yourselves, is that the problem? Grow up.

What to do in the hotels, though? FreshAir, sophisticated new Wi-Fi devices that can’t be disabled, might be installed, and can monitor smoking of any kind in real time. The machines alert the front desk to any untoward activity. Easy this way to send someone up to the room in question, and confront the party. The device’s data is also time-stamped, so there’s a non-disputable record of when and where the indiscretion occurred.

If fact, I’d suggest that responsible hotels purchase these things – I’m sure they are expensive – and enforce a strict policy whereby anyone caught smoking, especially marijuana, is asked to leave immediately, day or night.

One hotel manager I spoke with told me that when a room is left reeking after a guest checks out, it’s quite expensive to clean. Ionizer machines and strong chemical sprays are required to remove the stench from the air, furniture, carpets and the like. Sometimes, even with a thorough cleaning, the smells linger to where a room cannot be rented for days to other guests. Think about the lost revenue, not to mention the unsuspecting families with young children who have to breathe this crap.

Most hotels do charge a deposit on guests’ credit cards when they book – a minimum of $50 – for any damage they may cause to their rooms during their stay. But crafty offenders will block their cards for any additional charges after the fact. They are okay with losing the $50, but not the entire $250 cleaning fee. That means the hotel is powerless to claim any restitution. More lost room revenue.

Wake up, hotel owners and managers. Invest in new monitoring machines, and the manpower required to enforce them. In fact, I’d argue, that really smart hotels who take the lead – disruptors – by installing the devices, can use the claim in their national marketing campaigns.

I’d book with a hotel like that in a heartbeat, even pay a premium for my room. With all of the public outrage, I’m guessing others would, too. Kaching!

"ADGE Hotel & Residences Unveils New Tower to Meet High Demand, Showcasing Expansion and Interior Design"

La Vie Hotels & Resorts grows its Australian accommodation offering with the launch of a new tower at ADGE Hotels & Residences.

Following an exceptionally strong opening eight months, ADGE Hotel & Residences, managed by La Vie Hotels & Resorts, is celebrating the launch of a second designer hotel tower on the former site of the Cambridge Hotel, adding an additional 149 guest rooms to the property, making 254 rooms in total.

With its location just off Oxford Street, ADGE has been the hotel of choice for Mardi Gras revellers, concert goers and those keen to soak up the very best of Sydney’s restaurant, bar and entertainment scene.

This sustained growth in bookings and general interest, is testament to La Vie’s strategic approach to hotel management in Australia and its commitment to delivering distinctive and personalised experiences in the heart of inner-city Sydney.

Designed in collaboration between Tzannes Architects and Team 2 Architects, with interiors designed by SJB, ADGE Hotel & Residences underwent a $65 million transformation to deliver a unique hotel space where fashion, music, art and culture collide. Following the launch of the new tower, ADGE now offers 254 spacious guest rooms for both short and long stays, featuring bold carpets, pod-style bathrooms, SMEG fridges and Nespresso machines.

Guests also enjoy access to the acclaimed Soul Deli, as well as an intimate dining experience at Sydney’s smallest Japanese restaurant, Raida Noda’s Chef Kitchen, which is located in the lobby of ADGE Residences.
