…but the Hilton Alexandria Old Town? A different hotel property in a more convenient location could not have been chosen — and perhaps in an even more populated location? Why are there not more hotel properties equipped with this technology?
Anyway, earning those bonus points can be simple if you are staying at the Hilton Alexandria Old Town by following these steps:
Download the most recent version of the Hilton HHonors software application program, for which you must have an Apple iPhone 4S or later which is operating iOS 8 or later and has the ability to connect to the Internet — but Digital Key is coming soon for Android devices
Check in and select your room via the software application program
Select Digital Key in the software application program; and
Go straight to your room when you arrive – skip the front desk or counter to check in
Enjoy your room!
Even more constraining is that this software application program currently only allows one user to use Digital Key — meaning that additional guests will need to use a physical plastic entry key card. You can always ask the person at the front desk for a plastic entry key card if that is what you prefer to use after you fulfilled the requirements for this extremely limiting promotion.
So let me get this straight: only one member of the Hilton HHonors frequent guest loyalty program at a time with an Apple iPhone 4S or later using the latest version of the Hilton HHonors software application program can participate in this promotion at only one hotel property in the world; and only through September 30, 2015.
Don’t worry, Android users — the software should be ready for your portable electronic devices long after this most useless current promotion has expired.
