Hyatt Goes Mobile-Friendly...

Fri May 15, 2009 - 5:54 PM EDT - By Annie Latham

Looks like the Hyatt has made some moves to be more mobile-friendly (and not in an Apple App Store way). According to this story posted at FierceWireless.com, the Hyatt just launched its mobile Web site, which will provide guests with the ability to locate and book a hotel, view or cancel reservations, and check in or out through any mobile device. The new mobile site can be accessed on any Web-enabled mobile phone, automatically redirected from Hyatt's homepage at www.hyatt.com.

This mobile site is Hyatt's mobile site powered by Usablenet, a mobile partner for leading brands including American Airlines, Amtrak, Limited Brands, Nissan and Pfizer.

The "magic" is that when you launch the Hyatt website from your browser (i.e. Blazer on the Treo Centro, it arrives formatted for the screen. I gave it a try and was impressed. No left to right scrolling necessary.

The options offered included:

  • Day of Travel: Check In/Out and Travel Tips
  • Book a Hotel: Find and Book a Hotel and Hyatt Special Offers
  • Gold Passport (their frequent traveler program)
  • Contact Hyatt with access to their 800 number and other means of getting a hold of them (including international numbers).

It looked impressive and is worth bookmarking for anyone who travels frequently and prefers staying at a Hyatt.
