“There’s an app for that” seems to be an extremely popular mantra, and has been for quite some time now. It does look as though there will be no end in sight to newer apps that serve various purposes, and HotelTonight, an on-demand mobile hotel booking app, has just revealed a bunch of new features on the Android version of the app, where among them include “Express Check-In” and the Brivo Labs-powered “Keyless Entry.”
This would clearly place HotelTonight as an app that rises heads above shoulders from the rest of the crowd, being the first online travel agency in the market to roll out mobile check-in and keyless entry features to customers. Not only will this app make your hotel booking process easier and smoother, it would also ensure that hotels make the jump to take advantage of innovative mobile technology.
While some hotels do have Executive or Club floors that feature a private check-in area, that might still result in some delays, but with HotelTonight, guests can skip the check-in process and enter their room right away at the appointed time. All that you need to do is tap on the app twice to check into your room, and you will then be notified as to when your room is ready before picking up the keys from the front desk.
Alternatively, there is also the Brivo Labs-powered keyless entry feature, where it will take advantage of Android-powered devices that feature NFC connectivity, working in tandem with Brivo Labs’ SAM API. All you need to do is hold the Android device up with the HotelTonight app, running to the lock, and abracadabra!
