Hilton's Digital Key on the Fast Track

In August, Hilton Worldwide introduced Digital Key, an all-new feature of the Hilton HHonors app, allowing frequent guests the option to bypass the hotel check-in counter and access their rooms, as well as any other area of the hotel that requires a key, directly via the Hilton HHonors app on their smartphones. Now, a month later, Hilton expanded the service, making Digital Key available for Android users on the HHonors App, which has already been downloaded more than 584,000 times, according to the company.
 By early 2016, HHonors members will be able to use their smartphones as their room key to enter more than 170,000 rooms at 250 U.S. properties within the Hilton Hotels & Resorts, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, Conrad Hotels & Resorts and Canopy by Hilton brands.
 Digital Key provides guests with an additional convenient and secure way to access their room. Beginning the day before arrival, HHonors members who booked directly with Hilton may select their desired room on their mobile device using digital check-in and will be asked if they'd like a Digital Key during their stay. If the guest elects to use a Digital Key, it is issued as soon as the guest's room is ready the day of their arrival.
 When Diamond, Gold and Silver HHonors members arrive at the hotel, they can head straight to their room - without stopping at the front desk - since they already digitally checked-in through the HHonors app. When the guest approaches their hotel room, they can simply press the virtual "unlock" button on the app to unlock the door.
Hilton Digital Key is currently available at 17 property hotels.
