Our Review Response Program embraces the value of responding to reviews and the impact that engagement has on consumer behavior. Designed for hospitality leaders who struggle in having the bandwidth or expertise needed to respond to the endless reviews earned on websites like Google, Booking.com, TripAdvisor, and Expedia, our Review Response Program solves all your concerns.
Given the thousands of future consumers reading your reviews each month, the online reviews earned by your business are a powerful marketing opportunity. As a Guest Engagement and Reputation Management agency, we believe that responding to reviews is about more than just ticking a box. A thoughtful management response can contribute to the marketing opportunity provided by your reviews. Responses allow your business to build loyalty with the guest who took time from their day to leave your team a rave review. A well-crafted management response also allows your team the opportunity to showcase the first-class hospitality one can expect when staying at your hotel, or when dining at your restaurant. Unique selling features can be highlighted within a response and because many of our team members are former hotel leaders, we are skilled with resolution efforts, often shifting to an invitation for offline conversations when things fell short of perfection.

How It Works
Hotels and restaurants engaged in our Review Response Program will be assigned a dedicated Content Producer from The Reputation Lab content team. Each day, that Content Producer will collect the new reviews earned by your business and create unique, engaging, on-brand management responses to those reviews. Once complete, the Content Producer will present those to your hotel or restaurant team for your approval, and once that approval is received, we will then publish your management responses on the appropriate site, typically on the same day. Each client has a dedicated Content Producer, with many of those Content Producers having significant hotel leadership experience at various destinations throughout the United States.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
"As a lifestyle resort, we understand the importance of engagement with online reviews. The quality and quantity of reviews are equally as important as engaging review responses that represent your brand voice. The team at The Reputation Lab has made the process seamless and assisted the resort in achieving 100% review response on the channels that matter the most. In addition, the team has assisted in continuing to drive a culture of service throughout the resort as reviews and responses are sent daily to review with the team. I cannot recommend The Reputation Lab enough as they were critical to our resort having one of our most successful years ever!"

The winter months provide an enchanting time to visit the city with hot cocoa on the patio and ice skating in the park. For those adding romance to the weekend, a candlelit dinner while watching snow cascade down from the skies above will create endless memories that can long be treasured.
