First hotel company to provide hands-free hotel reservations for Ford vehicles
Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH), one of the world's largest hotel companies, announced today that it has launched hands-free hotel reservations for Ford vehicles.

The same functionality for iPhone users will be made available in the near future.
"In today's rapidly evolving market, it is important to stay ahead of the latest ways guests search and make reservations. We see an explosive growth in the connected car market, which is why we are thrilled to provide our Choice Hotels guests with this new mobile capability," said Robert McDowell, senior vice president, global distribution and marketing, Choice Hotels International. "Now that the Choice Hotels apps support Ford SYNC AppLink, drivers can make quick and easy reservations, while staying safe on the road using the hands-free technology."
To use the application, if your Ford vehicle is equipped with SYNC AppLink, visit Google Play to download the newest version of the Choice Hotels application at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.choicehotels.android.
