Marriott International has launched a free mobile app for iPhone and Android devices for India. The new Marriott Mobile tools enable time-crunched travellers to quickly find nearby hotels, book a room, check their upcoming reservations and get details about their hotel, including photos. In addition, for non-iPhone and Android users Marriott launched an ‘app-like’ mobile website that can be accessed from any web-enabled mobile device – the site even has that ‘app feel’ from taps to finger-swipes, the Hotel Group claims. With the app and mobile website, travellers can also enroll in Marriott Rewards, check their point balance, and even find out what’s happening in the local area. “We know that more than half of our hotel reservations made using mobile devices are for same-day stays. This shows how rushed mobile travellers are around the world; speed and choice are critical,” said Shafiq Khan, senior vice president, eCommerce, Marriott International. “With a few taps, you can now get immediate access on-the-go to our 3,600 hotels across 13 brands in 71 countries.” To download the free Marriott app go to: www.Marriott.com/mobile, test drive it and then write a review in the App Store or Android Market.
