CLEVELAND, OH—Americas Best Value Inn, along with its sister brands, Canadas Best Value Inn and Value Inn Worldwide, has launched its free iPhone mobile app.
The app has been designed to be user-friendly, providing the key functionality needed by customers looking for hotel accommodations while on the road.
The app’s key features allow travelers to find the nearest hotel to their current location, book a room and navigate to the hotel using GPS functionality. It also has features that allow users to touch to call hotels directly and view hotel information, amenities, accommodations, photo galleries and virtual tours.
“Research shows that one in five travelers in 2014 will book on their smartphone or tablet and most of those will select a hotel within 20 miles of their current location,” noted John Burkard, VP of distribution and technology for Vantage Hospitality Group.
