Book at Ease with Ascott’s New Web and Mobile Reservation Features
CapitaLand’s wholly-owned serviced residence business unit, The Ascott Limited, has launched new web and mobile booking features to enhance guests’ search and reservation experience.
Search more quickly and conveniently
Searching for the preferred property and apartment has become faster and more convenient. Instead of having to check the availability of individual properties for a stay period, a citywide search function enables guests to view a list of all available properties in a city. If guests have a certain budget, a filter will help them to narrow down the available apartments that meet their needs, starting with one that offers the lowest rate. There will also be collapsible sections for easy reading and to enable guests to compare the various apartment types and rate categories.
Book more easily with flexible booking options
Guests will enjoy greater ease of reservation with flexible booking options. If they are travelling to different places, require multiple apartments of different sizes for different number of people, or wish to book multiple apartments for different stay periods, they can now perform a multi-city, multi-property or multi-apartment booking within a single reservation process. For example, a guest can book two apartments in Shanghai and London in a single reservation instead of two separate bookings, saving half the time.
Besides being able to view a complete list of the serviced residences that Ascott has in a city, guests can now view the properties on a map for a better idea of their location and the nearby landmarks and attractions. Before confirming a booking, guests will also be prompted on apartment upgrades and supplementary services which they can opt for to enhance their stay.
To experience Ascott's new web and mobile booking features, guests can visit any of its three brand websites –www.the-ascott.com,www.citadines.com or www.somerset.com, and their mobile versions. With Ascott's Best Rate Guarantee programme, guests can be assured of getting the lowest Internet rate for Ascott's properties each time they make a booking through the company's websites. Ascott will offer a 50% discount off the first night of stay and a matching rate for subsequent nights if any guest finds an online rate lower than what is offered on Ascott's websites.
