Unlock your stay more quickly at select Hyatt hotels with Apple Wallet.
We’ve transformed your stay at select Hyatt hotels by simplifying the digital key experience on iPhone and Apple Watch—leveraging Apple Wallet for seamless entry to guest rooms, fitness areas, and other common areas at participating Hyatt hotels and resorts.
As the first hotel brand to offer room key in Apple Wallet on your iPhone and Apple Watch, our new feature complements the Hyatt digital check-in experience, which enables members to personalize their stay from room upgrades and selecting housekeeping preferences, to early check-in and late checkout for elite members and more, all available through the World of Hyatt app.
The convenience of bypassing the front desk and entering your room by simply holding your iPhone or Apple Watch near the door lock means that you have more time for you—and our colleagues can have more time to dedicate to making your stay memorable.
