Hotel in Zurich Steps Into the Future With Mobile Check-In

The Zurich Marriott Hotel's Convenient New Feature Enjoys Growing Popularity

ZURICH, SWITZERLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 02/28/14 -- There is almost nothing, it seems, that one can't do from a smartphone these days, and that includes checking in at the Zurich Marriott Hotel. Among the first of Marriott's international properties to offer mobile check-in, the hotel is paving the way not only for other Marriott properties -- all 500 hotels are scheduled to offer it by the end of 2014 -- but for an overall improved guest experience.

As a unique feature among hotels near Lake Zurich, mobile check-in was introduced to the Zurich Marriott on 13 November 2013. All Marriott Rewards members can access it, and they have wasted no time in doing so. In just three months, more than 50 check-ins have happened via mobile check-in, and that number is poised to grow exponentially in the coming months.

Visitors who utilize mobile check-in enjoy a privileged welcome to this Zurich hotel located near the train station. Signage and special carpeting at the front desk allow guests to bypass traditional lines and enjoy an elite, expedited check-in process. They simply retrieve their room keys and retire to their rooms.

Mobile check-in is just the first step to a memorable stay, however. By cutting down the time travelers spend at the front desk, the hotel ensures that guests can spend more time doing the things they like best. And that starts with relaxing. Offering some of the finest accommodations in Zurich, the hotel's recently refurbished guest rooms include plush bedding with designer duvets, plug-in panels for the ultimate in connectivity and spacious work areas that ensure visitors have plenty of room to make themselves at home. After settling in, guests can take advantage of the central hotel's position in Zurich, which affords easy access to the business district, shopping and nightlife.

Mobile check-in is important in another, more symbolic way, too. It reflects the hotel's commitment to state-of-the-art technology, a feature that appears via complimentary Internet in the public spaces and business services in the hotel's impressive 18,622 square feet of flexible event space.

Whether guests are looking to save time, enjoy a VIP check-in or simply try out a fun, new feature on their smartphones, mobile check-in is an appealing option. And it is the way of the future.
