Today's New York Times contained an very intriguing article about hotel check-in automation. The article discusses how hotels around the world are changing how the typical check-in process works and are moving from a traditional front desk to automated systems. Guests can now book online and receive entry codes that they enter at kiosks located in hotel lobbies and thus effectively bypass the hotel front desk. Here at House 5863 Chicago bed and breakfast we gotta ask: Where Have You Been? That is because we have had in place an automated check-in process from our inception in 2006. Guest can make a reservation online and once confirmed, the guest receives two codes that allow for entry to our front door and to their room. We have found that this system is preferred by most travelers as it allows for flexibility of arrival times and travel weary guests that arrive to Chicago on a late flight can get directly to their room for some needed rest and a hot shower rather than waiting at a desk to be escorted to their room. We remain on site and available for guess that require additional assistance but fr the most part, the system works like a charm. We are proud that our B&B here in Chicago can be such a trendsetter for the world's hospitality industry.
