Experience Your Dublin is a new “concierge-style web-app” for the 5 Star Marker Hotel in Dublin.
Developed by Dublin-based digital agency LikeWhere, the Experience Your Dublin web app aims to give guests to The Marker a personal concierge service tailored to their interests.
You can try the app, without booking a room at The Marker, so the app also acts as a potential sales tool for the hotel.
The app works like this: Once a user has accessed the app they “pick the cities they are most familiar with i.e. London, New York, Paris. The user will then pick the area in the city that they like, for example Notting Hill in London, and the app will gather the places most similar to that area in Dublin including restaurants, bars and attractions offering rich destination content which normally lies within travel websites, blogs and review sites”.
While interacting with the web app on The Marker hotel’s site, users remain on the website for significantly longer, increasing the likelihood of hitting the ‘book now’ button.
“Independent hotels need to view their websites in light of a user’s expectations and demands. We have been working hard to create a digital product that enables hotels to offer a meaningful resource to their users and guests,” says CEO of LikeWhere Simon Dempsey.
