Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide Inc. known for Westin and Sheraton Hotels is a high-tech hotel chain. It has begun giving preferred guests (known as SPGs) the ability to walk straight to their rooms and unlock their hotel doors with their smartphones by using Apple Inc.’s iBeacon—low-powered devices that use wireless technologies like Bluetooth Smart, also called Bluetooth LE (Low Energy), to interact with mobile devices.

Starwood even has an app ready for the Apple Watch that was launched this month in the US. It will allow users with an SPG app to access their stay details like check-in, checkout, and even get transportation and parking options at the hotel. The hotel “is marrying high-tech and high-touch to transform the hotel experience for our guests” and taking advantage of analytics and technology to “eliminate perennial pain points for our travelers”, according to Chris Norton, vice-president, CRM (customer relationship management) and channel intelligence, Starwood, who uses Adobe Inc.’s Marketing Cloud to help him in the task.
