Accor will release an Accorhotels iOS app for Apple Watch by the end of April 2015, allowing users to manage their current bookings and browse through the promoted hotels and destinations.
Accor SVP e-commerce and director of the “mobile first” programme, Romain Roulleau said: “By launching this Accorhotels application for Apple Watch Accor is establishing itself as an audacious digital hospitality player.
“This policy is part of the group’s digital plan, which aims to accompany the changeover to new mobile practices. Accor is thus fully embracing the era of connected wearables and adopting an ongoing improvement approach to this robust market trend so it can provide guests with a value-added service before, during and after their stay.”
Using the app, Accorhotels customers will be able to receive alerts about the check-in status, view their booking details, check out the hotel’s services at their disposal, and access Le Club Accorhotels loyalty card details with their status and loyalty points
The Accorhotels app for Apple Watch is available in 10 languages and works in connection with the smartphone app.
