Valencia Group hotels are upgrading their guest experience in all of their cities and providing the Foli app for free. This app allows hotels to give guests a digital magazine rack that they can experience from their tablet, smartphone, or other mobile device and enjoy unlimited access to multimedia, interactive, full–length premium magazines as well as eBook downloads during their stay. Upon departure, the publications can no longer be accessed because this is an upgraded service specifically designed for Valencia guests.
The three Texas hotels, the Hotel Valencia Riverwalk in San Antonio, Hotel Sorella CITYCENTRE in Houston, and Lone Star Court in Austin, are the first hotels in Texas to offer this free app to traveling guests and the Hotel Sorella Country Club Plaza in Kansas City, Mo. is also a pioneer in this effort as well as the first hotel in Missouri to offer.
“We think this is a service that today’s traveler is coming to expect with the latest technology trends,” said Roy Kretschmer, VP of Operations for Valencia Group. “Our primary objective is to always encourage guests to leave their rooms and enjoy our ambiance and offerings in each of our cities, yet we realize that for those traveling alone, dining alone, or for down – time in the evenings, this app is a wonderful addition to our amenities.”
Foli’s partnership with Hearst Magazines, a magazine publisher with more than 20 titles give guests a variety of magazine options such as Food Network, Car & Driver, Cosmopolitan and more. The ebook publisher with Simon & Schuster is providing its best-seller full-length ebooks to give guests the option to enjoy the most popular titles during their stay.
