Business Building App From W Hotels

[ 0 ] Aug. 22, 2011 | SBO Editor

W Hotels has an iPhone app that enables you to book a room, order room service, send messages and view special offers. The free iPhone app, which became available on iTunes May 20 from W parent Starwood Hotels, detects your location and displays hotels 16 or 17 miles away, for example, enables you to post information about them on Twitter, Facebook and foursquare, and view special offers such as 20% off your next purchase at W Hotels The Store.

If you select an Insider section of the app, there are options to “Order In” room service 24/7 and charge it to your room; an “I Need” tab to request towels, bedding and bath products; an “Anything Else” section for sending special requests or questions to hotel staff; and a “Treat Youself or Someone Else” button for pre-ordering things like chocolate-covered strawberries and sparkling wine.
