Parkroyal Hotels & Resorts has partnered Sydney-based social publishing platform Townske to launch a mobile application offering access to over 1,000 curated guides of cities with a Parkroyal property.
Accessible via the hotel group's website (parkroyalhotels.com) and available as a complimentary download on iOS and Android devices, each guide in the app, Parkroyal Picks, compiles useful tips on best-kept secrets and hidden gems privy to locals ¬- think hole-in-the-wall bars or quaint streetside restaurants.
Said Kevin Croley, senior vice president of marketing, Pan Pacific Hotels Group, "We are constantly looking for new ways to strengthen the connection between our guests and the local community by connecting them with authentic experiences... Our brand promise of being 'a trusted local companion' is perfectly aligned with Townske's mission to empower travellers with truly amazing experiences that only the locals know about."
Parkroyal Picks also offers location-based recommendations to help guests navigate the local area. In addition, guests can create a list of saved places to refer to while on the go, while drawing from guides like "Things to do when it gets dark in Singapore" and "Sydney's Perfect Picnic Spots".
