Another hot summer in St. Louis is wrapping up, and the Integriteam has been working up a sweat. With unlimited PTO being one of our biggest perks, it's time some of us scheduled a much needed vacation! Thanks to the new iOS app Integrity built for Drury Hotels, we can check out of the Lou and into one of Drury's luxurious rooms - all from our mobile device.
The focus of this project was to allow visitors to see available hotels rooms, rates, services and accommodations and book a reservation at any Drury location from the mobile app. Drury Hotels has won the J.D. Power highest satisfaction award among hotels in their category for 8 years in a row and our app was created to mirror that exceptional offline experience.
Our UI design team followed Facebook's navigation conventions so that users would instantly feel at ease using the mobile app. Another goal of the mobile app was to follow a simple UX, even though the functionality is fairly advanced. The swipe navigation is not something offered from any hotel chains currently, and a detailed search feature was also important to Drury. Integrity also set potential visitors up so they can filter through tons of options to find the right hotel room that meets all criterion for their getaway.
Download the Drury mobile iOS app to book your next getaway. We'll put in a good word with housekeeping to let you sleep in.
