  • Updating the “Room name” will likely affect upcoming reservations. Remember to check your upcoming bookings first.
  • If your property is using a channel manager, please contact your channel manager partner to remove/add the mapping on their side.

 

Frequently Asked Questions 

What if I can’t use any of standard room names, can I request to add unique names?

Standard room names are preferable since they are ready to use and to ensure consistency across the website. We have thousand names for your selection to match your room criteria; you may visit article here to find the best suited room names. However, if you feel that nothing matches the criteria you’d like, you may request it to our Accommodation Support team via the “Need Help” button on YCS.
