Destination Hotels & Resorts Launches Mobile Web Sites

Information on More than 30 Properties in the Collection
Now Available on Smart Phones



Englewood, Colo. – May 12, 2009 – Destination Hotels & Resorts recently launched new mobile Web sites for its more than 30 properties in its collection making it easier for guests to quickly access important information while on the go. To access these new sites, consumers simply type in the property’s Web address.  The Web sites then instantly detect the use of a mobile device and automatically redirects to the mobile version. A complete list of properties in the collection is available at www.destinationhotels.com, which can be viewed online or via a mobile device.

As the use of smart phones and PDAs continues go grow, Destination decided to implement this new strategy to ensure its sites load quickly and are user-friendly on these mobile devices. It is critical to ensure guest’s can easily find what they want, when they need it.

The mobile sites provide convenient information that guests may need while away from their computers such as general information on each property, location, directions, details on accommodations and reservation contact numbers as well as a single click on the address or phone number for a direct link to a map or auto dial. Over the next few months, Destination will be adding mobile reservation functionality as well.
