22 Flares 22 Flares ×

I always enjoy learning about updates and upgrades that hotels are making to keep up with today’s technology. That’s why I am proud to be a member of the Residence Inn by Marriott Resident Mom Club. It’s been a fun and informative partnership where I’ve had the chance to learn about the changes and transformations Marriott Hotels are making to make travel easier and more enjoyable for their guests.

Just recently Marriott released the Travel Brilliantly campaign that focuses on making checking in even easier. With the Marriott Mobile App all Marriott Rewards members will be able to:

Check-in after 4 pm the day before & up to 2 hours before your arrival

Marriott Mobile Check In

Check-in from anywhere

Marriott Mobile App

You’ll also receive a notification when your room is ready and can visit the Mobile Check-In Desk to pick up your pre-programmed key card when you arrive.

Future features of the app may include mobile checkout and guest services requests.

The Marriott Mobile App is currently available in 31 Marriott hotels and will soon expand to all 325 Marriott brand hotels. This will make the app the broadest mobile offering of its kind in the U.S. and Canada. You can learn more about the app on the Marriott Travel Brilliantly site.

The Marriott Mobile App is just one of the new innovations from Marriott Hotels. They have also rolled out a new brand look and logo that you can see here.Marriott New LogoI like that they kept the iconic M but modernized the logo as well. It’s eye-catching yet sleek.

Other features of the Travel Brilliantly campaign include:

• Lobby Greatrooms that merge modern, stylish design with comfort and offer easy access to food, beverage, and technology
• Workspring at Marriott which caters to smaller meetings
• Workspace on Demand makes it simple to book workspace as a hotel room
• The Red Coat Direct App enable meeting planners to adjust and edit meeting requests and preferences without leaving the meeting room

This video offers a look at all the innovations Marriott has to offer:

I was excited to see that Marriott is currently accepting ideas for future innovations from guests. Visitors to the Travel Brilliantly website can share their fresh travel ideas through the end of September. These ideas will be entered into a Co-Creation Contest where three judges will identify the top ideas that could change the future of travel. There will be 15 first prize winners and the judges will determine the creator of the best overall idea who will have the chance to travel with and design future innovations alongside Marriott experts.

To learn more about the app, the innovations, and the contest, visit the Marriott Travel Brilliantly site and “Like” Mariott on Facebook.

    I like that the app can notify you when your room is ready. We have tried to check in a couple of times at different hotels that have not had our rooms ready yet, and this would have been helpful.

  2. This is perfect for all people, & I love that Marriott is taking there guests suggestions. So important.

  3. Mya Murphy says:

    As for someone like me, who is a homebody, this wouldn’t help me, but major travelers, I believe it would rock for them.

  4. s riches says:

    This would be great for someone who travels a lot.

  5. This is such a smart idea. Great for any traveler.

  6. looks good – I don’t travel much

  7. Looks like a cool app. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Janet W. says:

    That’s amazing there is an app for everything, and that most companies have an app! Technology sure has come a long way!

  9. This would be great for my husband. He travels a lot for work and sometimes he doesn’t get in until late. so this way he could take care of his check in ahead of time. So cool! Thanks!

  10. We love Marriott hotels. We stay at them frequently. Cool app!

  11. Cindy Merrill says:

    Sounds fascinating, My idea for them is to have guests forward their dietary preferences ; Gluten free, Vegan, sugarfree, Kosher,ect,: Marriott would then connect them to restaurants that offer these options and/or also make these choices available at their Resorts/Inns.

  12. Maralea says:

    Wow! This app sounds great! Lots of neat features!

    Thats kind of a nifty little app. I normally call ahead (since we dont go much) and we have it planned. For busy families this would work well.
