HotelPlanner Relocates Worldwide Headquarters in Downtown West Palm Beach


WEST PALM BEACH, July 31, 2015 — JLL announces the completion of the headquarters lease totalling 15,000 square feet with HotelPlanner.com, the world’s largest provider of online group hotel bookings, in downtown West Palm Beach. HotelPlanner is relocating its corporate headquarters to the PNC Bank Building, a Class A office building located at 205 Datura St. in the heart of West Palm Beach.
 
JLL Vice President Kevin McCarthy represented HotelPlanner in securing the transaction, while Carol Bush of SLC Commercial Realty represented PNC Bank, the owner of the building.

“We worked closely with HotelPlanner to ensure they would find a space that fits its current business needs, but also accommodates the company’s immediate expansion plans,” said JLL’s McCarthy. “With just a stone’s throw to the water, retail stores and various restaurants, the office space is in the heart of downtown and will serve as a workplace that team members will enjoy working in.”

Relocating from the west coast several years ago with a small team, HotelPlanner quickly expanded to a team of 80 and will grow to 120 employees worldwide this year. In West Palm Beach, HotelPlanner will be looking to hire various positions ranging from programmers, experienced hospitality sales professionals, call center staff and more.

“JLL’s knowledge of the West Palm Beach was invaluable in helping us secure a full floor office space, with ocean views and ample parking for our worldwide headquarters operation,” said John Prince, co-founder and CIO of HotelPlanner. “These were important factors that we considered as we toured the market for space to provide the most value to our staff. The new office space will help take our business operations to the next level and expand on our commitment to West Palm Beach as the company’s global headquarters.”
