Langham Hotels International launched Langham Touch, a hotel iPhone app that offers voice-enabled travel phrases, promising the guests will never get lost in a city where there's a Langham property. Langham Touch allows guests to search and view vital city locations and information without ever going online. Its voice-enabled travel phrases, which include directions to the hotel from virtually anywhere in the city, can be accessed at the touch of a screen, allowing users to see and hear the phrases in the city's local language, including Chinese, Mandarin and Thai. A miniature city guide feature also can be accessed through the app, which includes cultural insider tips and recommendations for attractions, restaurants and bars in international cities. The app also includes key hotel information; toll-free hotlines for room reservations; and the option to order room service, ask for a wake-up call and make restaurant reservations. The app may be downloaded for free from the iTunes App Store.
