In the past, this hotel chain has been quick to adopt new technologies and incorporate them to suit their hospitality-based needs, and now you can make a hotel room booking simply by sending an emoji. Using Slack, you can book a room at Marriott hotels easily -- quite a feat for large groups traveling together.
Groups can input destinations and dates with the Marriott Rewards' Slack extension, and you will be given different options. Group members can vote on these options by sending the thumbs up emoji. This system also ensures you get the lowest possible rate.
Recently Marriott has also integrated chatbots and a Snapchat video series. Roomino also previously launched a group hotel room booking service utilizing Slack.
