Lush forests, tree-lined lanes, a regal ambiance — and completely up to date with a super-modern, gorgeous AppMachine app. These days, this old-world, four-star hotel — the Tjaarda Oranjewoud — communicates with its guests by way of their smartphones and tablets.
Tjaarda’s free app provides a great overview of all the luxury hotel’s amenities: its beautiful surroundings, its elegant sauna and wellness facilities, epicurean cuisine in the hotel’s restaurant and grand café, its cultural packages and — lest we forget — impressive hotel rooms.
Guests can reserve the room they want right from their app — simply and easily. Are there rooms available in the peak season? The app shows you in real time. Want to get a taste of the atmosphere before you arrive? Just look through the photos of their interior and surroundings. Need driving directions? You can find them with a tap or a swipe. What is there to do nearby? The app tells you. Want to stay apprised of news, special offers, or promotions? Guests can choose to have the latest new sent directly to their device through the app. Messages come in, even when the app is turned off. How?
Hotel Golden Tulip Tjaarda Oranjewoud made its app using AppMachine’s build-it-yourself software. Push notifications are one of our many features. So anyone who has installed the hotel’s app will receive their notifications directly. That makes Hotel Tjaarda’s app a perfect example of just how the hospitality industry can make the most of modern customer relationship management.
