NFC technology is definitely useful and we still have dreams of a NFC-supporting iPhone sometime in the future. Now the Clarion Hotel over in Stockholm is running a pilot program, allowing visitors to check in and collect their room key without having to talk to the receptionist. All you’ll need is an NFC-supporting phone, and you’ll be able to download the relevant information into phone and check yourself in. The information stored within can be remotely downloaded, stored and wiped, which will be useful when you check out of the room. Samsung devices are currently being provided to selected customers throughout the trial period but once the trial period is over, you’ll need to bring your own NFC device in order to enjoy this service. Check out a video demonstration of this after the jump.
