W Hotels unveiled today their iPhone app. The W app not only holds hotel booking capability for W Hotels around the world, but also features an integrated music platform with exclusive content, a first for the hotel industry, as well as W Insider tips, fashion finds and more.
W’s Global Music Director, Michaelangelo L’Acqua, acts as the brand’s ambassador for what is new and next in music. One of his ongoing projects is the Symmetry Live series that brings emerging artists to perform in W Hotels, including such acts as Ellie Goulding, Cee Lo Green, Janelle Monae, and Neon Trees. L’Acqua now lends his expertly trained ear to curate music for the iPhone app and will continue to infuse the application with the newest DJ mixes, updated on an ongoing basis.
The W app uses the MIX.dj technology to offer exclusive music content.
Beyond music, other features of the W Hotels iPhone app include:
- Explore W Hotels Worldwide: Find, explore and book W hotels and retreats around the world.

W Hotels came up with a very cool concept for their iPhone app. Instead of just another boring hotel booking app, they added something that even people will like that are not staying at the posh W Hotels. You can download the free W app on iTunes.
