Ritz-Carlton Launches New Mobile App

This is for all you tech-savvy travelers out there: there’s another app to add to your smartphone.

It may have taken them a while, but Ritz-Carlton Hotels launched their iPhone and Android mobile app this month, and it’s more than just an easy way to book a room.

The app uses tons of Quick Response (QR) codes, which are dispersed throughout individual Ritz-Carlton hotels and give a variety of information—from interesting city facts to hotel activities.

Check out some of the Ritz-Carlton’s around the world using QR Codes:

  • At the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua, guests can learn about the hotel’s art collection using the QR codes found and scanned in the app.
  • By scanning QR codes, guests can learn about wine pairings at the Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong.
  • The Ritz-Carlton Berlin gets kids involved by letting them participate in a digital scavenger hunt using QR codes and clues at each stop.
  • By scanning the QR code on the Ritz-Carlton Battery Park (New York) cocktail napkin, guests can obtain the recipe for the hotel’s signature 10-year anniversary drink.

The QR code function is built into the app, using your smartphone’s camera, so you don’t need to download anything additionally.

Don’t have the time trying to find and scan QR codes all over your hotel? The app has many more features!

  • Your phone’s GPS technology can identify when you have stepped into a Ritz-Carlton, signaling the app to gather landmark tips from Ritz-Carlton concierges from the mobile app, Foursquare.
  • The app has an activity calendar for every individual Ritz-Carlton, so guests can be in the know on the ongoing events during their stay.
  • You can look up other Ritz-Carlton locations.
  • You can make reservations for your next stay.
