What’s that saying – better late than never? Just kidding Hyatt, I’m very happy you finally launched an iPhone app (the Android app is still in development)! I haven’t gotten a chance to use it too much, but it’s got really sleek graphics and shows current reservations, Gold Passport balance and has the ability to book, check-in and check-out of hotels.
I’d like to have the ability to scroll through my Gold Passport account activity, right now it’s simply a statement summary. Also, it doesn’t let you see what type of rooms you have reserved – it simply shows check-in, check-out and number of rooms (and has a cancel button). I like the Starwood app, because it’ll show you the current room type you are in – including whether you’ve been upgraded. I have an upcoming stay where I used a Diamond Suite Upgrade certificate, so it would be nice to see that reflected in the reservation.
Oh well, it’s at least a good start! Though I do wish companies would invest less in flashiness and more in functionality, but I’m sure the good folks at Hyatt are already working on an update.
