Porter & Sail is designed to be the modern day answer to the hotel concierge. Now, rather than meet in-person with a concierge, Porter & Sail seeks to offer users all the benefit of local, in-house knowledge right from their mobile device. The Porter & Sail platform is exclusive, and only those staying at one of their partner properties can get access to the full range of content available on the platform. The service purports to deepen the engagement between the hotel and the guest, and to help provide the guest a better, more satisfying stay at the property.
Through the mobile app, guests at Porter & Sail partner properties have access to expert guidance on what to do and see in the area. The app gives guests access to special tips and promotional offers that aren’t publicly available, giving the platform an exclusive, insider vibe that aligns perfectly to that of the properties it works with.
The app has a very modern feel. Large, full-bleed photography is used throughout and gives the app an immersive quality and a strong aspirational pull. Users can explore hotels recommended by Porter & Sail. Navigation within a property detail page is innovative. Users can move between different key elements of the property -- from overview and location, amenities, room info, neighborhood overview. Within each element, users scroll through a series of full-bleed images to discover what more the property has to offer. Slick line illustrations are used to represent categories iconographically.
Curated content is presented in a manner that makes it easy and enjoyable to consume. Plentiful white space gives the eye room to rest, while the lightweight typography lends a contemporary, elegant feel that reminiscent of a high-end magazine. Overall, Porter & Sail is a useful (and gorgeous) resource for those lucky enough to stay at one of the high end properties the platform partners with.
Porter & Sail is a best app design in the hospitality, luxury and travel industries.
