didn’t work. Perhaps emojis will become a new international language.
Hotels is doing its part to enable guests to communicate using only the little
icons (there are over 700 of them now) that have become a ubiquitous part of
new Text It Get It (TiGi) initiative launched by Aloft allows guests to
order room service using just emojis – no phone call, not even a text with
words, just a simple icon.
new service began rolling out at Aloft properties in the U.S. and
U.K. just before Christmas.
for the “hyper-connected” global traveller, guests can request a
toiletry kit, snacks, a phone charger and other items by texting
the relevant emoji and their room # to the hotel’s dedicated TIGI # from
their mobile device.
Perhaps they could be used for
non-revenue services as well. Is there a blocked toilet emoji?
