In the future, guests can pre-select preferred room and floor 48 hours in advance based on guest needs such as after verdant views or near-elevator room access.
Hotel guests can still request for a physical key card or request for a temporary mobile device from the front desk with the application pre-loaded for guests not wishing to download it on their phones. This app is to help keep in the demands of modern travellers that is time saving, while also keeping the commitment for the group to deliver personal and friendly hospitality in any way possible.
