Our Story

Founded in 1996 by hotel industry veteran Leslie Dreier, HIS was created with partnership in mind – to help hotel owners and operators navigate the then-fledgling world of Internet marketing. Think bulletin boards and newsgroups, and when websites were simply hotel brochures with little to no interactivity or engagement with consumers.

Chris Guimbellot, a career hotelier, purchased HIS in 2012, and under his tutelage, the company has grown to encompass a comprehensive spectrum of services including website design and hosting, search engine optimization, search engine marketing, social media marketing, e-mail marketing, reputation management, and more. Today, HIS has evolved into a full-service online hotel marketing company guided by forward-thinking, progressive strategies that keeps pace with the rapid-fire shifts in the hospitality and travel industry while still staying true to the original ideal on which it was developed – partnership.

Specialists in online hotel marketing, the HIS team collectively possesses more than 50 years of experience and success in the travel space. At HIS, we understand the distinct challenges hoteliers face, and we’re skilled at implementing proven solutions that bolster a hotel’s online presence, capitalize on marketing dollars spent, and yield a significant return on investment.
