The world is quickly evolving towards self-service technology. Hotel check-in kiosks are becoming more and more popular due to the continuing challenge of staff shortages. The CEO of Marriott says hotel labor shortage is the “most significant challenge” that hotels are currently facing. Luckily, the hotel check-in kiosk protects the guest experience, while being able to perform all the tasks a front desk concierge would normally do. Just because there is a staff shortage, doesn’t mean the guest experience needs to suffer. 


What is a hotel check-in kiosk 

A hotel check-in kiosk is a self-service automated high-tech system with a touchscreen feature that gives guests an alternative option for check-in, sign-up, and verifying documents without the help of an employee. A hotel check-in kiosk allows guests to check-in in seconds, making it convenient during the peak hours of check-in and check-out. They can also provide customers with a touchless experience, giving hotels and guests greater flexibility, productivity, and convenience.

As technology advances and evolves, consumers’ expectations are increasing. According to CXMToday, 81% of consumers say they want more self-service options.” The hotel check-in kiosk is a perfect contactless, self-service solution, and fits consumers expectations and needs.

How can hotel check-in kiosks benefit your hotel?

The hotel check-in kiosk gives your hotel lobby a modernized appearance while doing more than just checking-in and out guests. Benefits include: 

  • Reduce lines and wait times: Don’t lose guests due to frustrating long lines. Hotel check-in kiosks can shorten lines at check-in, check-out, and everywhere in between. Guests value the hassle-free, seamless processes for checking-in and checking-out of a hotel.
