Available in both platforms’ app stores, the new app—which prioritizes low-contact in-stay features and is slated to be the first to offer mobile check-in and checkout at nearly 6,000 economy and midscale hotels in the U.S.—comes at a critical time as both travelers and hoteliers look for innovative, digital solutions to help navigate the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic.
Delivering simplicity and innovation for the everyday traveler
Chief among the key offerings in the new Wyndham mobile app are features and functionality that simplify the hotel booking process while reducing direct contact between travelers and hotel staff.
- Mobile check-in / checkout – Available at nearly 300 hotels throughout the U.S., with plans to expand to nearly 6,000 hotels before end of year, guests can leverage mobile check-in and checkout to reduce contact between themselves and hotel staff.
- Digital room key – Coming later this year to select resorts like the Wyndham Grand Bonnet Creek in Orlando, Fla., and Wyndham Grand Rio Mar in Rio Grande, P.R., guests may choose to receive their room key digitally via their mobile phone and use throughout the duration of their stay. Expansion to other hotels and resorts is anticipated over the next 12 months as additional locations choose to leverage and implement.
- In-stay mode – Open the mobile app within three days of a stay and the home screen defaults to prioritize and display the information most relevance to the guest, such as important stay details, front desk texting, local attractions, mobile check-in availability and more.
