DALLAS, TX (February 21, 2023) – Associated Luxury Hotels International (ALHI), a luxury global sales organization spanning the spectrum of hospitality, today announced a strategic partnership with ROH, Carats & Cake’s parent company, which is the first purpose-built revenue optimization platform for hospitality groups. The partnership facilitates a direct connection between ALHI’s premier luxury properties and ROH’s proptech solution that addresses the demand for efficiency across marketing, sales, and finance within hospitality.
