The Westin New York at Times Square is
First U.S. Hotel to Launch iPad App
Travelers Can Preview Hotel & Amenities


New York, NY- Oct. 8, 2010- The Westin New York at Times Square is proud to announce the availability of the hotel app for the iPad, providing a sneak peek of the property and the ability to book reservations, just as hotel bookings completed over smartphones are rising ramatically.* While hospitality brands have iPad apps, The Westin New York at Times Square is the first hotel to offer this service to travelers. With just a few taps, users can see information on the various types of rooms and amenities available, an array of vibrant photos, and a video that showcases the New York City hotel, its services, and local attractions.

“We strive to keep the hotel ahead of the curve,” said General Manager Terry Lewis. “After the launch of our iPhone app last year, an iPad app was a natural progression.”

Visitors who do not have their own iPad, and are staying in one of the new Atrium Club Rooms, can test-drive the app on the hotel’s iPad available for guest use in the Atrium Club Lounge.
