Amsterdam, NL Hotel Marches Into the Future With Mobile Guest Services

From Check-In to Check-Out, Guests of the Amsterdam Marriott Hotel Can Do It All From the Palm of Their Hands

AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS -- (Marketwired) -- 06/06/14 -- It has been claimed that technology's purpose is to enhance the quality of our lives, but few advancements have done so as unequivocally as the app. While computers can bring business to a standstill when they malfunction, the app offers a reliable array of tantalizing opportunities to live life better. Want to establish a matrix for fitness? No problem. Feel like learning a new language? Presto! And now, thanks to Marriott's groundbreaking app, people can simplify travel to the Amsterdam Marriott Hotel in a number of exciting ways.

Launched within the brand's remaining 148 international properties on May 6, 2014, Marriott's Mobile Guest Services app promises to revolutionize visitors' experience of this premier Amsterdam lodging. Now travelers can use their iPhones or Androids to access the app and perform a variety of actions, starting with mobile check-in.

As visitors embark upon their journey, the app sends a reminder to check-in as well as an alert when their room is ready. Guests also have the option to submit an arrival time, thereby helping to ensure their room's readiness when they arrive. And the arrival experience for mobile check-in guests surpasses anything else available at other Amsterdam hotels near museums. Guests simply bypass traditional check-in lines to collect their room key at a designated area and head upstairs.

After enjoying a stay within the hotel's gracious suites and guest rooms, which are located near all the best sights of Amsterdam, visitors will find it is just as easy and pleasant to check out. As they prepare to depart this city hotel in Amsterdam, the mobile check-out feature notifies them of check-out, gives them the option of an emailed invoice and, once complete, a virtual confirmation that check-out is complete. As a result, guests are spared a trip to the front desk on their way to the airport.

Available to all 45 million Marriott Rewards and The Ritz-Carlton Rewards members in a number of language platforms, including English, Mandarin, French, German and Spanish, the Mobile Guest Services app represents Marriott's ongoing commitment to the next generation of travelers. No other brand provides a comprehensive mobile-services offering like Marriott's, and that's just one way the brand is supporting individual hotels like this one in creating the most relevant hospitality experience possible.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
