Marriott Hotels has announced the addition of mobile checkout to its industry-leading Marriott Mobile app for smartphones. Mobile check-out is the latest innovation from the brand in a string of new services designed for today’s connected travellers. Guests can check-in and now checkout at 348 hotels worldwide, including five hotels in Europe – London Marriott Grosvenor Square, Brussels Marriott, Marriott Bristol Royal, Prague Marriott and Zurich Marriott.
Later this year, the entire Marriott Hotels brand – all 500 properties worldwide – will offer mobile check-in and check-out, available in English, Chinese, French, Spanish and German. The new mobile service is available exclusively for Marriott Rewards members. To date, the Marriott Mobile app has been downloaded over 2.8 million times.
“By relentlessly focusing on the needs of the next generation of travellers who are mobile and global, Marriott Hotels is putting itself at the forefront of the hotel mobile revolution,” says Paul Cahill, senior vice president of brand management at Marriott Hotels. “When we launched our Travel Brilliantly campaign last year, we made a promise to introduce innovations for our guests that provide a seamless and more customised experience throughout their entire journey. We’re excited to add mobile check-out to our portfolio of innovations as Marriott Hotels reimagines the future of travel.”
There have been more than 150,000 mobile check-ins since the service was launched in July last year.
