The company expects room nights to grow between 9 percent and 12 percent in the next quarter. Total revenue for the third quarter was $4.8 billion, an 11 percent jump compared to the same period in 2017.

Decoded was the incumbent on the account. Spokespeople from Decoded did not immediately respont to inquiry for comment.
