Built on the new smarter and more advanced v4 enterprise Guest Experience platform, My Web Valet boasts redefined technology to power all guest service applications. Designed to deliver content, analytics, integrations and the highest level of security for brands, the GXP also features a new user interface, more guest service features - as standard - and delivers greater flexibility to promote more revenue generating opportunities.

The solution is also accessed directly from within the AccorHotels mobile application giving AccorHotels' guests access to a wide range of services offered in hotels during their stay.
