Top 6 Unique Hotel Check-ins

If you love making a grand entrance, these hotels check-ins will surely lure you in. Theyre personalized, fun, high-tech, and seamless. They just spell top service from the doorstep-and sometimes, even from the airport. Below is a list of check-in worthy hotels across the states you shouldnt miss out on.

Peninsula Beverly Hills

Top 6 Unique Hotel Check-ins

Created by James Northcutt, the Peninsula Beverly Hills boasts of its impeccable service. Just like its customized room scent and the monogrammed pillowcases, this Los Angeles hotels check in is just as flawless and personalized. From the minute you step in, their guest relations manager will know your name, hand you your registration papers and keys, and escort you to your suite, room, or your private villa in the garden.

That was 18 months ago. Today, theyve actually stepped up their game. They now welcome their guests from the Los Angeles International Airport itself. A total of five concierges are deployed to greet the newly arrived guests. According to one of the Peninsulas Managers Gareth Brooks, at least 45 percent of their guests book chauffeured cars through the hotel.

For $134 to $280 added to their bills, they can have a Lincoln Town Car, a Mercedes-Benz, a luxury SUV or a BMW take them to the Peninsula. The concierge in charge will also take care of their luggage and lead them and their companions to the rented car parked at the curb.

Brooks proudly said that their check-in system is seamless. Their guests do not need to line up at the reception to wait because even the front-door staff already knows whos arriving at what time.

Andaz Hotel

Top 6 Unique Hotel Check-ins

While the Peninsula Beverly Hills certainly tops the most interesting check-ins across the United States, the new Andaz Hotel which sits at 75 Wall Street downtown in Manhattan is not far behind. You dont have to worry about long queues when you book for a room here because they have an efficient alternative to the usual conventional check in desk.

From the lobby, you will be greeted by a host who will then offer you a seat and a cool glass of wine. S/he will then type in your name using an electronic tablet which resembles an iPad, swipe your credit card, and hand you your room keys.

The host will then escort you to your room, which costs around $245 on average. The room is just as impressive, with high ceilings, dark oak floors, and a transparent window which separated the bathroom from the bedroom.

If you prefer the faster lane, though, and you wish to skip the pleasantries, you can also check in at the elevator through your indifferent but efficient host. The 253-roomed Andaz Hotel is owned by Hyatt and designed by David Rockwell. News has it that this will be followed by another Andaz Hotel at 5th Avenue, this time, designed by Tony Chi. This will also have an e-tablet holding host instead of the old check-in booth.
