This new gadget connects the customers with the local activities of Barcelona and its culture as well as offering all the amenities and services of the hotel in the same device

Hotel Claris 5 * GL, Derby Hotels Collection, offers to its customers, free of charge, the new Portier mobile device, with which they can get all the services of the hotel and experience the city of Barcelona to the maximum.

Developed by the company Portier Technologies, the service offering is built around a call-enabled 4G smartphone placed in every guest room, and the devices are customized for each hotel property, keeping guests connected to the hotel during their entire stay. Guests can engage with a hotel’s concierge and guest services department anytime, anywhere, whether they are in the hotel or exploring the city. The guest will also have information about Barcelona and its points of interest, access to newspapers and magazines from around the world and permanent telephony and data service. The Claris Hotel & Spa is the first hotel in Europe to offer this service, designed to meet the most common needs of travelers.

Through the agreement with Portier, Claris Hotel & Spa solves the extra cost for travelers to activate the Internet service on their personal mobile devices and allows them to stay connected during their stay.

With this service, the traveler will be informed of the most exclusive events that the city offers, in addition to accessing a series of offers specially designed for them. This application aims to integrate all the wishes and needs of the guests into an easy and intuitive solution, which helps both travelers and hotels. According to Joaquim Clos, Derby Hotels Collection general manager, "this system allows us to offer added value to the guests, to stay in contact with them during the stay and to offer them information of everything that happens in Barcelona".
