The move towards a contactless guest experience is spreading like wildfire. Many hotels around the world now use technology to automate their check-in, in-room, and checkout experiences for visitors. COVID-19 has normalized contactless technology due to the increasing awareness about possible risks that can be linked to physical contact and touch. That is why hoteliers are investing in more innovative ways to deliver a touchless experience to guests.
However, the concept of contactless hotels is entirely not new. Over the last few years, many players in the hospitality industry have implemented smartphone door locks, instant communication, and other self-service technologies. Hoteliers review all the multiple touchpoints between staff and guests in their customer journey. They also map out areas where contactless technology could be used to reduce exposure while simultaneously preserving the brand’s uniqueness at the same time.
