MGM Resorts International & Fueled announced Monday that guests can now check-in directly on their phones with the launch of a new resort app.

Guests at Bellagio, Mandalay Bay, Aria and the other 10 MGM properties can use the MGM Resorts app to check-in on arrival and unlock their rooms with the same app.  The app serves as a digital room key, so guests can unlock the door with just their phone. Or, you can scan the code at one of the key dispensers to print your room key. In a city that’s infamous for its hotel check-in wait times — some Vegas hotels take up two hours — the MGM app will definitely streamline the process. Guests can now go straight from the airport directly to their hotel rooms.  

The app also serves as a guide to attractions around Las Vegas. You can pull up dining and event suggestions based around current booking, in addition to allowing reservations to be made through the app.  

MGM’s check-in app comes amid a growing trend of hotels turning to smartphone technology to enhance customers’ experiences. Hilton also recently launched its “connected room” pilot, which allows guests to control the room’s features, such as room’s temperature, lighting, television entertainment, all through the Hilton Honors app on their phones.

The MGM Resorts app 5.0 update launches today and is available for download for iOS and Android for free.

If you’re itching to give the digital check-in a whirl, check out these Las Vegas discount packages as part of week four of the US Travel Association’s Daily Getaways promotion.
