One in three guests check in online


Changing travel expectations mean that many guests now expect to get to their rooms faster upon arrival, while also dealing with minimal admin.


Online check-in, part of Mews Guest Journey, allows guests to fill in all of their details before they arrive, including signing digital registration cards. This saves time for guests and staff, and means that their interactions don’t have to be primarily transactional. Guests who check in online are also typically more engaged in their stay, with a higher total spend.


• 33% of guests use online check-in
• 9% higher ADR for guests who use online check-in
• Up to an hour saved per day for the front desk team
