Book. Stay. Go. launches with over 60 luxury & lifestyle hotels in six U.S. cities, including San Francisco, Miami, New York City, Chicago, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles
SAN FRANCISCO – May 13, 2016 – Book. Stay. Go., a leading mobile hotel solution for business, mobile, and millennial travelers, today announced the launch of the hotel industry’s first SaaS-enabled marketplace, featuring mobile check-in and mobile room keys — with 8M+ room nights of inventory in six U.S. cities and a slew of features to make booking and staying at a hotel a stress-free and seamless experience.
Book. Stay. Go. allows travelers to book a hotel room at the best possible rate, then check in & select their own room prior to arrival. Upon arrival, travelers can skip the front desk and use their smartphone as a room key. With this update, rates now include high-demand dates, corporate rates, and last-minute rates. Travelers can also request exclusive late-check-out options and access free hotel WiFi information directly from the app. With Book. Stay. Go., travelers who prefer to interact with hotels digitally can control their entire stay from their mobile device, with a single, slick app.
The updated app also adds a number of useful features for business travelers. This includes deep Uber integration, which allows users to automatically link their hotel destination information into the Uber app, for hassle-free travel to and from the hotel. The version being released today in the App Store also offers Expensify integration, which allows users to send their hotel invoice directly to Expensify, anytime post-departure. Finally, Book. Stay. Go. offers exclusive corporate room rates, when provided with a participating corporate email address.
Below is the full feature list now available on Book. Stay. Go:
- Access to last-minute and corporate rates
- Mobile check-in and room selection prior to arrival
- Skip front desk with smartphone digital room key
- Free WiFi network & password info
- One-tap Uber trip integration
- Mobile check-out with Expensify expense reporting
Book. Stay. Go. has doubled the number of hotel partners since September 2015, now operating in six U.S. cities. Travelers can book luxury & lifestyle hotels in New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, and Las Vegas.
“Today, we are pleased to launch Book. Stay. Go. – the only hotel marketplace to provide mobile booking as well as mobile check-in, room selection, and mobile room keys to deliver a superior hotel stay for travelers,” said Viko Bhakta, CEO/Co-founder, Book. Stay. Go. “In addition, we are excited to offer over 8M room nights of inventory and pleased to integrate with leading mobile partners – Uber & Expensify – to offer travelers a complete mobile experience from booking to post-departure.”
Hotel partners join the Book. Stay. Go. marketplace to offer suite of mobile functionality, including mobile check-in, mobile room keys, mobile check out and chat messaging. In addition, hotel partners upload rates & inventory to secure direct mobile bookings.
“The hotel business has been around many years. Airbnb changed the way people think about booking a place to stay. Book. Stay. Go. changes the way people book, interact, and communicate with hotels,” said Edith Yeung, Partner at 500 Mobile Collective. “I love the fact I can save me time and go straight to my hotel room. The experience is magical and much less stressful after a long journey.”
