WORLD’S FIRST EMOJI ROOM SERVICE ARRIVES AT ALOFT LIVERPOOL
8 years ago
Aloft Hotels, designed for the hyper-connected global traveller, is set to debut Aloft TiGi (Text It. Get It.), the world’s first emoji-only room service menu, at Aloft Liverpool. Kicking off from 18th January 2016, guests will be able to order a fun selection of items from room service via text from the Aloft TiGi Emoji Room Service Menu – an emoji-led selection of packages that will offer essentials to guests that can be easily conveyed via pictures.
Guests simply *text the corresponding emojis from the Aloft TiGi Emoji Room Service Menu to the hotel dedicated TiGi phone line, along with their room number, to receive their chosen item. Menu items include:
To celebrate the debut in Liverpool, there will be a total emoji takeover with Emojifest. Visitors will be able to participate in a three day Emoji-fest of activities during the month of January, which will include the world’s first Emoji Afternoon Tea, and an exclusive Live@Aloft event with local musicians and Emoji Exhibit, an installation that will showcase Liverpool artists’ creative interpretation of emojis.
Aloft’s TiGi Emoji Room Service represents the latest forward-looking milestone for Aloft, Starwood’s innovative, tech-forward incubator brand. Aloft made history in August 2014 when it became the first major hotel brand to hire a robot, Botlr, for both back and front of house duties at Aloft Cupertino and other US locations. Other innovations include SPG Keyless, the world’s first truly mobile, keyless entry system; piloting Apple TV services; mobile-controlled guest experiences, and more. Most recently, Aloft announced it is testing innovations such as mobile controlled lighting and wake up preferences as well as virtual reality experiences in its concept rooms, which will launch in 2016.
