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.

Guests looking to refuel can choose between Sorel's Midtown Bar and Lounge and the upscale Midtown Grill. And for those in town on business, the hotel's 12 redesigned meeting spaces make work both inspiring and productive, thanks to natural light, state-of-the-art technology and versatile seating. Everyone, whether in town for business or pleasure, can enjoy the 396 guest rooms and suites that luxuriate in views of gabled architecture and iconic canals.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...
