Restaurants aren’t the only businesses using QR codes. Amid the pandemic, hotels are opting for QR codes to keep their guests safe and decrease contact points. A QR code is a matrix barcode that contains information about the item it is attached to, such as landing pages.
QR codes are beneficial for making dining reservations, browsing menus, making spa appointments, and more. By implementing this form of technology, hoteliers minimize the amount of contact on surfaces throughout the hotel.
Another benefit of QR codes is that hotels can make it their own. Hotels can create a QR code with their logos and brand colors while also leading guests to individual hotel landing pages that guests may not have visited before. This method establishes a QR code identity for hotels while also generating brand awareness. Creating professional-looking QR codes will also make guests feel more comfortable and more likely to use them.
Let’s take a look at a few hotels that are currently using QR codes for their guests.
Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort
