Five Star Hotel Software

Five Star Hotel Software is one of “the most comprehensive suite of Windows based software for hotels” which is developed by Five Star Hotel Systems Corporation (Hotel Online News, 2013).

Five Star Hotel Systems Corporation is a Canadian company that was built in 1994. This corporate and their products, such as Five Star Hotel Software, do not have too long history or too much public records online – the cost of this hotel software cannot even be found online, but since 1994, “[Five Star Hotel Systems Corporation] has been continuously focused on clients’ needs and their feedback, resulting in hotel software that is simple for [their clients] to learn and use, extremely reliable, and very cost effective due to its low support requirements” (Five Star Hotel Systems, n.d., Home section, para. 1).
