Choice Hotels launches hands-free hotel reservations for Ford vehicles

Choice Hotels International, Inc. has launched hands-free hotel reservations for Ford vehicles. Drivers of Ford vehicles equipped with SYNC AppLink can download Choice Hotels' Android app, which will enable them to use voice commands to search for available rooms at nearby Choice Hotels, hands-free. The same functionality for iPhone users will be made available in the near future.

More than 1.5 million Ford vehicles in North America are equipped with SYNC AppLink. By 2015, Ford will have more than 7 million SYNC AppLink-enabled vehicles on the road globally.

"In today's rapidly evolving market, it is important to stay ahead of the latest ways guests search and make reservations,” said Robert McDowell, senior vice president, global distribution and marketing, Choice Hotels International. “We see an explosive growth in the connected car market, which is why we are thrilled to provide our Choice Hotels guests with this new mobile capability. Now that the Choice Hotels apps support Ford SYNC AppLink, drivers can make quick and easy reservations, while staying safe on the road using the hands-free technology."
