Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced the introduction of room keys in Apple Wallet across the first six participating US hotels: Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort, Hyatt Centric Key West Resort & Spa, Hyatt House Chicago/West Loop-Fulton Market, Hyatt House Dallas/Richardson, Hyatt Place Fremont/Silicon Valley and Hyatt Regency Long Beach. Looking ahead, the technology is expected to be rolled out across Hyatt’s global portfolio. With the availability of  room keys in Apple Wallet, Hyatt’s World of Hyatt loyalty members can now “seamlessly and securely” tap their iPhone or Apple Watch to unlock guestrooms and key card-protected common areas like gyms, pools and elevators. There is no need to open an app or handle a traditional plastic room key. Julia Vander Ploeg, senior vice president and global head of digital and technology for Hyatt, said the Apple Wallet feature is “an easy, convenient and secure room key option for our guests when they travel.”
