Wow! Hilton is developing a smartphone app that will allow users to seamlessly check into their hotel rooms, choose those hotel rooms, and so much more. The whole application is updated constantly and features the ability to purchase upgrades, request special services, and deliveries. Talk about the synergy of the future! Hilton is expected to start rolling out their application to all of their hotel chains later this year.
Room selection: At 6 a.m. the day before a booked stay, Hilton HHonors members can sign into their account via their mobile device, tablet or computer to check-in and choose their preferred room through floor plan maps or lists populated from the hotel’s available inventory. Photos of rooms are also available to help with their selection. Hilton’s digital lobby function is updated in real-time, so guests no longer have to wait until they are physically in the hotel lobby to be assigned a room.
