Hyatt hotel keys now available in Apple Wallet app

Hyatt announced on Wednesday that it has partnered with Apple to make hotel keys available at select hotels.

According to the announcement, there are the following hotels that will support this feature: Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort, Hyatt Centric Key West Resort & Spa, Hyatt House Chicago/West Loop-Fulton Market, Hyatt House Dallas/Richardson, Hyatt Place Fremont/Silicon Valley and Hyatt Regency Long Beach.

What this all means is all users will have to do is use their iPhone or Apple Watch to open their hotel room door and other parts of the hotel as well. On the iPhone, verification to open the door will be done through Face ID or Touch ID.

Both the iPhone and Apple Watch will have to be on iOS 15 and watchOS 8 or above in order for this new feature to work.

Hyatt has stated that once the customer has completed their reservation, they can get access to their hotel keys through the World of Hyatt app. After the person has checked out of the hotel, the key will no longer work.

What are your thoughts on this feature being available at Hyatt hotels now? Comment below or let us know on Twitter at @appleosophy.
