Revolutionary move for the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company


Ritz-Carlton checks in to Foursquare and travels with you

Travel the globe, check in to locations and landmarks
in 25 countries, and you will find far more information than you were expecting
from a luxury hotel operator as The Ritz-Carlton introduces the World Concierge
on Foursquare. This is the first time a luxury hotel brand has extended their
exclusive services to a mobile public audience. Tips will be populated
regularly by concierges from all 75 Ritz-Carlton hotels around the world
contributing, with the knowledge-base growing and evolving every week.

There is not a mention to be found about the soup of
the day at a particular hotel; instead, the ladies and gentlemen of The
Ritz-Carlton have taken their phenomenal knowledge and expertise beyond the
four walls of the hotels in which they reside, providing insight into cities
such as Toronto, Miami, Berlin and Dubai to name a few. The result: hundreds of
tips and insights about local destinations and landmarks all over the world.

“Guests of The Ritz-Carlton have always enjoyed
the expertise of concierges who are the best in the business. Their local
knowledge, VIP access and incomparable contacts make them an invaluable
resource for travelers”, said Chris Gabaldon, chief sales and marketing
officer, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company. Foursquare enables The Ritz-Carlton
Concierge to travel with you. “It’s possible to access their destination
knowledge instantly as you check in to multiple global landmarks,” added
Gabaldon. “Starting today, Foursquare users across the globe are invited
to access knowledge and valuable tips just by following The Ritz-Carlton on
Foursquare. For the first time ever, the collected local knowledge of The
Ritz-Carlton is available in your pocket.”

Foursquare users are able to find local information by
visiting the profile of The Ritz-Carlton or by checking in to numerous
locations of interest around the world. To receive tips as they go live you can
follow The Ritz-Carlton on Foursquare. To start exploring, visit

Ritz-Carlton on Facebook and Twitter to see featured tips as they go live by
