hotel.info launches Android and BlackBerry App for easier hotel booking
hotel.info has extended its range of apps for mobile savvy customers with the launch of the Android and BlackBerry Apps. Following the release of the iPhone App earlier this year and the Windows Mobile 7 App in June 2011, the addition of the Android and BlackBerry App in August 2011 now completes the company’s app portfolio, allowing customers using any kind of mobile phone to “simply book for less”.
The hotel.info Apps have been designed to allow users to instantly make hotel bookings using a mobile phone - fast and fuss free they appeal to both frequent travellers and casual holiday makers.
A list of hotels in the users’ preferred area, map view and area overview as well as a route planner that determines the distance from guests’ current location to the booked hotel are key benefits of the app. Users can refine their search for accommodation by a specific hotel name or limit results to their desired price bracket. Photos of the hotels and customer reviews and ratings assist customers in selection of the right hotel.
Previous reservations that can be viewed in the booking summary, a favourites folder and the ability to amend upcoming hotel stays make it easy to choose the next holiday accommodation.
Hotel seekers using the iPhone who require a hotel on the spot in their current location will find the Live View feature extremely useful. It displays hotels superimposed onto a snapshot image of the immediate vicinity alongside their distance from the user’s current location and the bookable room rates.
Corporate clients still benefit from their agreed negotiated rates and corporate discounts but have the added advantage of remote use.
