Joie de Vivre- Yvette
Joie de Vivre Hospitality’s innovation in the face of increasing online hotel room purchases is a truly remarkable one. While booking online makes a lot of sense for rental cars and airline tickets, it provides challenges for choosing a hotel room, which is a much more personalized product. Yvette, Hotel Matchmaker is an online hotel-matching engine designed to match people with their ideal hotel. After a simple personality test, Yvette, Hotel Matchmaker serves up five hotels, two locales, and six things to do in the Bay Area that match the personality of the consumer. This is the important first stage in the complete Joie de Vivre experience for which the company won the 2001 “Experience Stager of the Year” award in Las Vegas.
