I love when technology makes life easier, and especially appreciate innovation in the travel and hospitality industry.
In a few weeks, the new MobileSuites app will launch, with an awesome premise. The idea is that users will be able to make requests of their hotel via the app, streamlining the communication between guests and the hotel.
From the developers:
The MobileSuites app is a concierge-style mobile app that allows travelers to seamlessly manage their hotel experience. During their stay (or even before they arrive) travelers can use the app to:
- Order room service & other hotel amenities
- Schedule transportation (e.g. cabs, valet parking)
- Make restaurant & spa reservations
- Ask questions & make custom requests
- Check-out of the hotel
- (Check-in coming soon)
The app will launch on March 2nd to select users, will access being rolled out to additional users over the coming months. MobileSuites has built a database of over 1200 hotels across North America. Through their app, they help facilitate the interaction between guests and hotels, even though they are not yet partnered with the major hotel chains (Starwood, Hyatt, Hilton, and Marriott).
As someone who literally lives in hotels, I love this idea. Being able to order room service en route to a hotel and have it ready to go by the time I arrive will be an huge benefit for late-night arrivals, if nothing else.
