Screen Shot 2013-12-12 at 5.51.18 PMYou no longer have to be in your hotel to check in, set up room service, or order directions. You’ll be surprised by all the the things hotel apps are set up to do.

It seems every corner of the travel industry has joined the mobile app craze. Now, hotels are jumping on the bandwagon too.

Hotel apps allow you to customize your stay, from pillow preference to morning newspaper to bath amenity scent. On the more functional side, hotel apps are making your stay as paperless as possible, offering a check-in and check-out service at the swipe of your finger. If you’re in a hurry, you can check out, send a bellman up to your room, and have a taxi ready and waiting in under 30 seconds.

Next time you hit the road, consider downloading your hotel’s app prior to departure. Turn-b- turn directions will be linked with your phone’s maps so that all roads lead to your hotel. While this is convenient during your whole stay, it also assures you that your taxi or airport transfer isn’t taking you “the long way.”
