Hyatt Hotels Corporation has announced a redesigned World of Hyatt mobile app with new features that enable loyalty members to customize their stays and provide a more seamless experience throughout their travel journey. Available on both iOS and Android systems, the app is offers single-swipe navigation, enabling members to more easily view and access all app features and hotel services. Members are also able to manage all of their World of Hyatt account details, including available points, benefits, and awards balances, through the app.
 
Julia Vander Ploeg, Senior Vice President & Global head of Digital for Hyatt, comments, “As mobile bookings continue to increase, the new World of Hyatt app is designed to deliver ease of use and will lay the foundation for an increasingly personalized experience. We are adding to the number of ways in which we are listening to and caring for our members. We view technology as a way to scale care for our members, and the mobile app relaunch is a step forward in our journey to provide more ways to engage with Hyatt across its digital channels.”
 
Building on key app functions, including the ability to search and book with over 900 hotels, view upcoming and past reservations, and track progress toward tier status and Milestone Rewards, the app enables members to:
 

  • Access and stream personal content directly to the in-room TV through Chromecast without the need to enter additional credentials.
  • Unlock guestrooms and public spaces via Hyatt Mobile Entry.
  • Make requests directly to the hotel and receive feedback in real-time via a new chat option.
  • Request items directly to guestrooms.
  • Access the schedule of meetings and events happening at the hotel during the member’s stay.
 
“We heard from our members that they wanted more from the World of Hyatt app and today’s relaunch incorporates key functionality that aligns with member needs and preferences,” says Amy Weinberg, Senior Vice President for World of Hyatt. “For some members, maintaining their routine while traveling is dependent on knowing more about the hotels’ workout facilities or simply being able to watch their favorite shows via Chromecast. For others, they want to easily navigate the destination and the hotel that they are visiting, from dining to transportation to local activities, as well as quick ways to dialogue with the hotel directly. The relaunched app is another way we are adding value for and extending care to our members throughout their travel journeys by adding more relevancy before, during and after their stays, and making it easier to explore Hyatt’s growing brand portfolio.”
