Unlike Tryp Times Square, where the app made its worldwide debut last month, the Lungarno Collection has the advantage of having multiple hotels in one city. So it would follow that the conversation stream is actually larger. Right?
When guests check into the hotel and opt to "check into" LobbyFriend, they are only able to "see" other guests at the same hotel. But with Lungarno's four properties (Hotel Lungarno, Hotel Continentale, Gallery Hotel Art and Lungarno Suites), the daily stream of comments, suggestions, and deals would conceivably be drawing from a larger pool.
Here's what Lungarno's Web Marketing Manager, Pierfrancesco Coscarelli, had to say about the new tech service:
"[LobbyFriend is] a useful tool to ensure that guests never miss out on any activities or shows, whether it's a wine tasting event at Borgo San Jacopo or an opening of the new art exhibit at GALLERY Hotel Art."
A little cross-promo never hurt anyone.
