Marriott to introduce mobile check-in European roll-out in early 2014
Marriott will introduce mobile check-in at some of its European hotels next month.
The hotel chain is to offer the service through a Marriott app on Apple and Android devices. It will initially be launched in five hotels in cities such as London, Prague and Brussels, before being rolled out across Europe in Q1 2014.
Ulrike Hallegger, director of rooms at Marriott Europe told Travel Daily the function will be used in Marriott branded hotels first and will be then in other brands under the group at a later stage.
She explained the mobile check-in will allow users to tell the hotel when they are likely to turn up, with the hotel then able to notify guests on the day when their room is ready. They will still collect a key from reception.
