Hilton has come up with its brand new technology that enables the members of the loyalty scheme of Hilton to unlock their hotel room and also certain areas of their hotel like fitness centres with the aid of their mobile phones.
The unique technology is activated the day prior to the arrival.
It simply implies that Hilton emphasizes on the Honors members who book directly. They are able to select their desired room on a smartphone utilizing a digital check-in. They would be enquired if they would prefer the option of a digital key during their stay in the hotel.
Once they arrive, they would be receiving a notification through the app.
And, when the guest approaches their hotel room they can just press the virtual ‘unlock’ button on the app with a view to unlock the door.
The chief marketing officer of Hilton, Geraldine Calphin said that Hilton expects that this ‘Straight-to-Room’ technology would work wonderfully in the UK. The UK rollout of this technology would commence with 10 new hotels before it moves onto 100 properties by the end of 2017 and 2,500 globally.
Furthermore, Hilton also confirmed that the Honors members would be able to book directly a flexible payment slider that lets the members choose any combination of points and money to book a stay, along with free WiFi and an exclusive member discount.
