MCLEAN, Va. — Hilton has announced that its HHonors members staying at U.S. properties of Hilton Hotels & Resorts, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, Conrad Hotels & Resorts and Canopy by Hilton brands, can use their smartphones to access their rooms and other areas of each property that require a room key, such as the fitness centre and parking facilities.
The new service follows Hilton Worldwide’s digital check-in with room selection technology, introduced in July, now available at more than 3,700 hotels and worldwide by the end of this year.
“Our mobile room-key technology gives our guests greater choice and control over their entire experience,” said Geraldine Calpin, global head of Digital at Hilton Worldwide. “Never before has a hotel guest been able to check-in, select their room from a digital floor plan, request items to be ready upon arrival, and then access their room via their smartphone and find it exactly the way they requested it.”
The new program begins in spring 2015.
