President Abraham Lincoln Springfield – A DoubleTree by Hilton Celebrates being the first hotel in Springfield to welcome Digital Key Technology
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. - President Abraham Lincoln Springfield - A DoubleTree by Hilton, part of DoubleTree by Hilton's fast-growing global portfolio of upscale, full-service hotels, announces that they are the first hotel in the Springfield region to offer Digital Key technology for guest room check-in. After downloading the Hilton HHonors app on a smart device, guests will be able to choose a room, check-in and enter their guest room, all from their phone - allowing them to skip the front desk entirely.
"We are committed to continuously improving the guest experience and utilizing cutting edge technology" said General Manager Robert Sabin. "Digital check-in and Digital Key are great ways for us to continue to offer our guests the best service in the Springfield area."
For guests who opt to go straight to their room, the warm and welcoming DoubleTree Cookie will be delivered just prior to arrival, based on the arrival time selected during Digital Check-in.
Digital Check-in with Room Selection
- In 2014, we introduced digital check-in with room selection - an industry first - which enables Hilton HHonors guests to check in and choose the exact room they want from a digital floor plan.
- Digital check-in with room selection is now available at scale across 700,000+ rooms at 4,700+ properties and 13 brands - offering our Hilton HHonors guests a consistent, personalized experience globally.
- Guests have enthusiastically embraced the tool. Since its launch, digital check-in with room selection has been used by Hilton HHonors members more than 20 million times, with 93 percent saying they were "likely" or "extremely likely" to use it again.
- As of August 2015, Hilton HHonors members can now book a hotel stay, check-in, select a room and access their room using their smartphone as their key.
- As of August 1, 2016, Digital Key is live at more than 600 properties and expanding quickly. Additionally, more than 700,000 Digital Key users have used the technology to open our doors three million times
