Have You Been Invited To Use Smart Check-In at Starwood Aloft Hotels?



I just received this e-mail from Starwood letting me know about the Smart Check-In program for Aloft Hotels. I was intrigued with this program, so I looked it up on YouTube and found this video on how it works:

Congratulations — you’ve been specially chosen to participate in Smart Check-In, an exclusive program at select Aloft hotels. Sign up now to enjoy this innovative and convenient check-in process! Here’s how it works:

• You’ll be sent a special Aloft-brand SPG card that will double as a room key, allowing you to bypass the front desk and go straight to your room whenever you stay at participating Aloft hotels.

• On the day of your arrival, we’ll send a message to your mobile device containing your room number.

• When you arrive at your participating Aloft hotel, skip the front desk and go directly to your room. Just touch your Aloft-brand SPG card to the door to unlock it — you’ll be checked in automatically and have full access to the Aloft front desk throughout your stay.

To reserve your spot in the Smart Check-In program, please respond within 10 days. You’ll also be invited to fill out a short survey following each stay to tell us about your experience with Smart Check-In.

Thank you and congratulations on being selected for this exclusive program!


I thought this was a really cool concept. I’m not sure on how I got this invite, but it was probably due to my recent stays at Aloft hotels which I have been trying out more. I can’t wait to share more details with you about my personal experience with this special key card when it arrives in the mail.
