SoBro Guest House adds StayNTouch PMS, adds mobile check-in

One hundred percent of guests at the SoBro Guest House in Nashville use the mobile check-in feature.

SoBro Guest House in Nashville has deployed StayNTouch’s Rover PMS and Zest solutions. One hundred percent of the hotel's guests use the mobile check-in feature and therefore has eliminated the need for a front desk.

“From the start, we had a goal of creating a unique kind of service experience at SoBro Guest House,” GM Kim Rittenberry said in a statement. “StayNTouch provided a platform in which we could design and curate our operation in order to achieve that goal. We successfully achieved a virtual front desk and concierge at our hotel where 100 percent of the guests use StayNTouch mobile check-in. The front desk is now in our guests’ pocket. ”

“Not only were we looking to create a new experience for guests but also a new experience for hotel managers. By eliminating the need for a front desk, our management team can operate the hotel anywhere at anytime by using the Rover PMS and is not locked to the confines of a traditional hotel set-up. Our team is able to work from home or remotely around the city. This type of freedom in the job has restored a true sense of work-life balance for our hotel managers, and we are proud to have achieved this for our employees.”
