Spruce Point Inn App Gives Visitors Smartstay Insiders Guide to Boothbay Harbor Maine(May 17, 2011)
Boothbay Harbor, ME (PRWEB) May 17, 2011
Created by Spruce Point Inns marketing partner, ORourke Hospitality Marketing, the Smartstay app for Spruce Point Inn is a free download at the iPhone store from the Travel category: Download the Spruce Point Inn app in the iTunes store here.
The Spruce Point Inn/Boothbay Harbor Smartstay guide is also available as a free Android download.
On opening the app, guests see four options that make a visit to Spruce Point Inn and Boothbay Harbor more enjoyable, including:
-- Book a Room with a direct link to the inns online reservations function
-- View the Inn a gallery of great images that capture the essence of the Inn and its 2011 upgrade
-- Special Offers exclusively for Smartstay adopters
-- Plan Your Trip with insider tips on the best to see and do in Boothbay and Mid-coast Maine
In addition, Smartstay is a complete electronic pocket guide for the smartphone, with real-time news updates and an interactive map.
The idea is to give our guests an easy, portable way to interact with us and the destination, using their smartphones, wherever they are, said Angelo DiGiulian, innkeeper for Spruce Point Inn. When theyre on the road, before they get here, they can see pictures of our guestrooms and amenities, make a reservation at the Inn, respond to spur-of-the-moment offers and see what else is happening in Boothbay Harbor during their stay. Once theyre here, exploring Mid-coast Maine they can call us with one click on their iPhones or Androids, connect to other sites and attractions and make reservations, all with one handy electronic guide that happens to live on the smartphone they already have in their pocket.
The app is ORourkes Smartstay 2 product, the latest version of the leading mobile app for hotels, custom-designed for each hotel and destination in partnership with the property. Smartstay 2, an upgrade for the product created just last year, includes a customized welcome page to reflect the hotel brand, the ability to add completely new tabs, the integration of Google analytics, external RSS feeds, and multilingual functionality.
Tom ORourke, CEO and founder of ORourke Hospitality said, ORourke Hospitality Marketing is based in Newburyport, Massachusetts and we especially enjoy working with New England hotels due to their proximity and our knowledge of what their guests are looking for when they visit New England. We were very excited that after choosing us to redesign and enhance their website, that Spruce Point Inn decided to adopt our Smartstay app, too, with custom-designed content specifically for their hotel.
