A new free app for iPhone, BlackBerry, and Android devices, Marriott Mobile, enables travelers to quickly find nearby hotels, book a room, check their upcoming reservations and get details about their hotel, including photos.
The app, designed and created by Marriott, will naturally offer information regarding this particular brand. But with 3,600 hotels across 13 brands in 71 countries, the offer is broad and appealing. Aside finding Marriott hotels, with the app and mobile website, travelers can also enroll in Marriott Rewards, check their point balance, and even find out what’s happening in the local area.
Marriott’s mobile app for smartphones and its upgraded mobile website were provided and developed by AT&T as part of AT&T’s Mobile Enterprise Applications Platform, which provides unique Write Once, Run Everywhere platform technology utilizing its work with Kony Solutions. The platform leverages a single application definition so applications are designed and developed just once, meaning Marriott will be able to deliver richer content to its guests more quickly. Marriott’s mobile website and apps are hosted and managed by AT&T and include quality control testing to ensure the most positive user experience.
