Mews powers The Neighborhood Hotel to a fully digital guest journey

Verified case study Hotel Tech Report has reached out to hoteliers at The Neighborhood Hotel to verify this case study.
The Neighborhood Hotel operates apartment-style hotels that combine a modern guest experience with an authentic local experience in vibrant areas. Their properties are completely contactless, with no full-time staff on-site, therefore smart, automated technology is essential. The brand’s first hotel opened in March 2020, with 153 hotel apartments in total.
Why it matters: More revenue through direct bookings
  • Completely staffless online check-in

Top 3 Core Objectives: The Neighborhood Hotel wanted to prioritize direct bookings, as it allows them to generate more revenue through upsells and cuts down on lost commission. The US Aparthotel brand operates without any full-time staff onsite, so all guests need to be able to check in and access their room by themselves.
  • Prioritize Direct Bookings: Mews Booking Engine is a high-converting reservation portal that makes it fast and easy for guests to make a booking. It’s simple for the hotel’s team to add images and extras, including upsell options like pet fees, karaoke and conference room bookings.

  • Completely staffless online check-in: The Neighborhood Hotel operates without any full-time staff onsite, so all guests need to be able to check in and access their room by themselves.
