Auto Room Assignment Based On Likes (Room Features & Preferences)

Configuration of Guest Likes (AKA room features and preferences) in Rover will aid with room selection for arriving guests, provided features are saved for the rooms. Once below configuration is done for room features, preference based room assignment will be possible. 

1. Manual Room Assignment by a Rover User: On the Room Assignment screen, a Rover user may search for and assign a room to a reservation that meets specified room features/preferences during the check-in process or pre-block a room prior to the guest’s arrival.

2. Auto Room Assignment for Zest Mobile Check-ins: At hotels using the auto check-in function, if a reservation with guest preferences (near elevator, high floor, etc.) does not already have a room pre-blocked, Rover will first search for and select an available room with those preferences. If a room with those preferences is not available, or if preferences have not been saved in Rover on all room numbers, a ready room without those preferences will be assigned in order to perform the auto check-in based on the guest’s arrival time.
