Travelclick announced that it has teamed with Mobiata, the developer of today’s best-selling mobile travel applications, to launch a new free mobile application called StayHIP. The partnership aims to combine mobile app design from Mobiata with hotel search expertise and   booking technology from Travelclick to create an app designed exclusively for a niche community of travelers. The first bookable app for boutique hotels, StayHIP caters to travelers who want to search for and book a more stylish or chic hotel stay experience. It features hundreds of hotels across more than 170 cities in 45 countries worldwide and is available for free download to Apple’s iPhone and iPod Touch, as well as Google’s Android.

With a sleek, engaging, ultra-friendly interface, StayHIP offers mobile guests multiple ways to search for the coolest, chicest, most unique hotels in the world, including search by city name, price, or keyword (for example, “contemporary, luxurious, urban”). And for exceptional convenience, the “Hotels Near M”feature on StayHIP instantly finds the nearest boutique hotels using guests’ GPS location.

Each hotel listing features property details, including a description, photo gallery with images viewable at full screen with one touch, as well as streaming video. StayHIP users can also choose to view rates, room types, and availability-”all accessed in real-time directly in the application. When a guest decides to book a stay, the booking is completed 100 percent within the application. Email confirmations are sent based on the user’s personal contact information. Guests have the option to quickly share their booking information with friends on Facebook and Twitter. For future reservations, user information is stored on the user’s device for a faster, more efficient booking process.

“StayHIP is the future of mobile travel applications,” said Robert Post, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Travelclick. “We expect the emergence of more and more targeted mobile apps like StayHIP-”enabling consumers to find and book the perfect stay, and at the same time, hotels can stand out from the crowd while engaging directly with their target guests in a highly personal way. All with a secure, time-saving booking experience from the consumers’ preferred device.”
