Destination Mansfield, the county’s tourism marketing agency, has announced an exciting addition to their visitor-friendly websites through a recent investment in JackRabbit Systems’ new hotel booking solution.

The software allows visitors of DestinationMansfield.com and ShawshankTrail.com to search for lodging by travel dates, view available rates through an easy-to-use sorting feature. “

We were looking for a simple way to for visitors to find available lodging with no hassle for and Jack Rabbit Systems was able to make that happen,” according to Destination Mansfield Meetings & Marketing Director, Kim Miers. “Previous booking systems added more cost for the lodging properties and were more complicated to put into place.” This process saves the user from clicking on many different links to find a room.

“Travelers also see the “Book a Room” feature on our three Facebook Pages: Destination Mansfield, Shawshank Trail, Haunted Mansfield Ohio,” Miers said.

The feature will also work on mobile devices.
