President’s letter Luxury goes mobiLe InsIder knowledge Bottom: Scan the QR code below with The Ritz-Carlton App to learn an insider tip from President Hervé Humler. A As president and COO of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, I am fortunate to be able to visit all of our stunning locations around the world, and it’s always a pleasure to share my discoveries with family, friends and our guests. Now, with The Ritz-Carlton Mobile App, I can do it very easily and in real time. The new Ritz-Carlton App, downloadable on Apple iPhones and Android smartphones, goes well beyond basic hotel search and reservation functionality, allowing me to share my insider tips and recommendations — from a secluded garden in Sanya, China, to a one-of-a-kind Viennese crystal chandelier in Doha. In addition, The Ritz-Carlton App debuts with 20 hotels providing QR code experience tours on property, including The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong, where guests are able to learn more about wine pairings at the highest hotel in the world. In Germany, young guests at The Ritz-Carlton, Berlin may enjoy a digital scavenger hunt. And at The Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park, the hotel’s signature 10-year anniversary cocktail is served on a napkin that features a special QR code that downloads the cocktail’s recipe. GPS technology also allows the application to recognize when a guest has arrived at a Ritz-Carlton property and can provide location-specific advice, information and even exclusive offers. With the tap of a finger, guests can learn about local culture and customs, concierge tips or a hotel’s art collection. Plus, new destination and landmark tips are populated by Ritz-Carlton concierges and experts all over the world every week. Find, explore and reserve any Ritz-Carlton hotel around the world with one touch. Make reservations, check itineraries and even manage Ritz-Carlton Rewards accounts in a simple, convenient format. It’s all there. The Ritz-Carlton App is yet another invitation to “let us stay with you” — our ongoing effort to create lasting memories for our guests. Get started today by downloading the app at ritzcarlton.com/app. Scan the QR code on this page, and I will share a personal insight about The Ritz-Carlton with you.
