London’s largest hotel owner-operator, glh Hotels has announced it will be increasing the booking commission from 8 per cent to 10 per cent on meetings and events and group bedroom business. 

The 10 per cent commission will be available on all of glh Hotels’ 120 meeting and event spaces spread across three of its London brands, Amba, Guoman and Thistle.

Jane Griffiths, global sales director at glh Hotels, said: “At glh Hotels we pride ourselves on our ‘designed around you’ approach, which means we constantly review customer feedback to create our meeting and event packages and amenities. Whether it’s a board meeting or a banquet, we know how much effort goes into organising an exceptional event and we hope our increased incentive will reflect this.”

The move is the latest in a series of shifts on commission at hotel groups, which began with the announcement in January that Marriott would  be cutting commission for group business at its US and Canada hotels.

Glh Hotels properties include The Royal Horseguards Hotel, The Grosvenor Hotel, Amba Hotel Marble Arch and Thistle Heathrow T5.
