agoda.com, a leading global hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN), recently received an award from Goodstay, an initiative of Korea Tourism Organization (KTO).

The Goodstay project was launched to help overseas travelers to South Korea easily identify quality accommodation. Currently more than 300 hotels, motels, inns and guesthouses across the country carry the Goodstay seal of approval – an official endorsement from KTO denoting high-quality lodging, great facilities and excellent service.
 
In June 2011, agoda.com began listing Goodstay properties, introducing these affordably-priced rooms to an international customer base of more than 3.5 million. Since then, agoda.com has become a major distributor of Goodstay properties to foreign travelers, making it easy for first-time visitors to South Korea to find quality centrally-located accommodation.

To thank agoda.com for helping promote tourism to Korea via the support and sale of Goodstay rooms, KTO awarded agoda.com with a plaque of appreciation.

Mr. Wilfred Fan, Director of Hotels for North Asia at agoda.com, commented: “We are delighted to be a part of this success. Combining the branding initiative of KTO and our online distribution network, smaller accommodation operators are now able to reach a worldwide audience. Our investment in training and service for these operators throughout the country has paid off for all parties involved.”

All Goodstay properties are named as such and are easily identifiable on the agoda.com site. There are currently more than 40 Goodstay properties available through agoda.com, located in Seoul, Busan, Jeju Island, and several regional destinations across South Korea.

Customers who book at a Goodstay property are assured clean and comfortable lodging, proximity to public transport and exceptional guest service. All customers booking through agoda.com also receive Rewards Points that can be used to discount the price of future bookings.
