No longer is it enough that your phone is simply a device that lets you call people, Smartphones are the new ‘must-have’ accessory. Armed with your Smartphone, you have a world of knowledge and entertainment at your fingertips – and contact with your friends and colleagues is but a BBM, Tweet or Facebook message away (to name just a few of the wealth of social media and messaging platforms available today).
Not forgetting of course – ‘the app’ – handy little digital shortcuts from your phone to almost anything you can think of including both the weird and the wonderful in everything from gaming and entertainment to shopping and travel.
With the app becoming common-place and Smartphone use on the rise, it seemed only right that Sandman reach out to the technically captivated with their very own app, making it easy and quick for guests to book hotel rooms from their phones.
As some of you may know, we launched the ‘Sandman Mobile App’ for iPhone in September and we’re pleased to report that it’s been a resounding success. Since launching, it’s been downloaded more than 2000 times resulting in over 200 bookings! These stats alone are testament to its great functionality. So it is with great pleasure that we announce the arrival of our equally seamless ‘Sandman Mobile App’ for BlackBerry users.
Everything you need to make a decision about where to stay through to booking a room and managing your reservations, is packaged into one concise and seamless application. The app offers guests the best rates at all Sandman locations, and full access to the entire Sandman Hotel Group collection, including extensive photo galleries, it will even tell you where your nearest Sandman Hotel is.
With the ’Sandman Mobile App’ you can:
- Book a hotel room
- View upcoming reservations
- Browse photo galleries and lists of amenities for each hotel
- Gain access to special offers
- Find Sandman hotels with GPS and interactive maps
- Use Click-to-call buttons to connect directly to each hotel
- Enrol in the Status plus rewards program and start earning and redeeming Status Plus Rewards Points
