Process at all Hotels In the Americas
|MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 1, 2004 - Radisson Hotels & Resorts today announced
that it has launched "Express Yourself," the hotel industry's first, new
generation online check-in process that is now available at all its hotels
and resorts in the Americas. At the core of this new expedited hotel
check-in process is the ability for guests to check in via the Web at their
convenience and provide preferences in advance of their arrival, eliminating
a lengthy check-in process and providing more control over their hotel
experience. The new system was designed to support Radisson's new brand
strategy focused on identifying and enhancing key guest touch points and
"Express Yourself" features a three-step process. First, guests reserve a room via any Radisson booking process (Web site, call center, hotel direct or through a travel agent). Then, seven days prior to their visit, they will receive an e-mail inviting them to "express" themselves by checking in at the Radisson Web site. Personal preferences might include the request for a specific room location (examples include proximity to elevators, high or low floor), high speed Internet access, enroll in the Gold Points Reward program or other special service requests.
Upon arrival, they only need to identify themselves at the front desk. They will promptly receive a key packet and hotel information -- with no waiting and no hassles. Guests can utilize Express Yourself up until 6:00 p.m. on the day of arrival and at least two hours prior to check-in.
Guests selected preferences will be delivered automatically, every time they stay at a Radisson location.
"In the near future, guests will also be able to express their personal preferences for additional services such as newspaper, request an automatic wakeup call or room service order," said Bjorn Gullaksen, Carlson Hotels Worldwide executive vice president and Radisson brand leader. "These features will be available to all guests, regardless of booking process."
Gullaksen explained that each time guests book a new reservation, they can elect to modify or enhance their "Express Services" for the current trip.
"Along with a quick check-in," said Kris Lambrecht, program director for Express Yourself, "one of the primary objectives of the Express Yourself program is to deliver our Radisson "Yes I Can" warm and engaging service culture and 100 percent Guest Satisfaction to every guest on every stay."
