IN RESPONSE to the 49 per cent increase in visits to its mobile site and 71 per cent jump in mobile reservations in 2015, Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) has released a redesigned smartphone app offering new, more user-friendly features.
Currently available on the Apple App Store, and on Android devices come March 2016, key features of the new app include the ability to search over 520 hotels by name, destination, proximity or experience using Google maps.
Detailed information about each hotel, accompanied by photo galleries, is also available. As well, the app features an instant booking button, a button to call a local SLH reservations agent, as well as email and social media sharing functions.
“While we have always seen healthy visitation to our mobile site, the increase in reservations being made via mobile in 2015 was striking and demonstrates how consumer confidence in making transactions through mobile devices has changed. The new SLH app provides a quick and simple way to enjoy any of our hotels, wherever our guests happen to be, around the world,” said Filip Boyen, CEO, SLH.
