First look at the new Marriott Hotels app for Windows Phone due next week
Despite some apps disappearing from the Windows Phone, in recent weeks we have seen more official ones arriving. We can now add Marriott International to that list.
The large hotel chain is in the late testing stages of their Windows Phone app, and it should be in the Store by May 11.
According to our tipster, the app experience is so far superb:
Besides Marriott, Windows Phone and Windows 8.1 users also have the excellent Hotel Tonight and Hilton HHonors for booking rooms for their vacations.
We will keep an eye out for the Marriott Hotel app to go live, but it should not be much longer.
Thanks, Derrick H., for the info!
