  1. we have had several complaints from guests who received an email notification when we took payments from an OTA vcc. This is completely unacceptable not only because it creates anxiety with the guest, it also now shows them the real cost of their stay!
    yes, the cc number is not their own, but they should not receive the notification at all.
    there is no way to add the vcc to the PayMaster as our bookings come in via a channel manager and are thus showing on the reservation.
    Please investigate and fix or alert us how to prevent this from…

  2. Online check-out emails are currently sent at 5pm day before arrival. For properties with high focus on a relaxed luxury experience this has caused negative guest reactions. Ex a guests checks-in at 4.30pm, for a 1 night getaway and on their way to the spa 30min later they get a an email prompting online check-out. Whilst it may seem efficient it might not be a relaxing guest experience. In addition, properties with a high capture rate for dinner would not want to push their guest to take actions before dinner charges has been added to the bill. The ability to…

  3. When sending a confirmation to a booker, the name of the guest does not appear on the confirmation letter but only the reservation number. This does not look professional at all and we receive many complaints by our guests. They feel like they are a number and not a guest.

  4. In the before start email the closing is not customizable. At the moment the closing is "Kind regards", which is pretty formal and not suitable for many brands. Therefore the introduction of an customizable footer would be great.

  5. In France, it is now mandatory to give the postal code of the guest when you want to close the bill. So it would be very convenient to make it mandatory when the customer makes the reservation. Or to leave us the choice to add it as a mandatory information or not.

  6. 99% of guests in the US and Canada do not travel with their passport. Therefore Mews ID scanner doesn't work in this region. Properties are looking for ways to automate their check-in and checking ID/Driver's License is absolutely crucial.

    Scanning IDs and DLs is a needed feature in North America.

    Properties should also be able to make this a mandatory step if a guest wants to check in on a kiosk.

  7. It would be great to be able to customize the requirements for a Kiosk Check. This would allow us to collect information that is not part of any legal environment based on our location.

    Right now we ask guests to utilize the kiosk but when it cannot collect all the information we need for a check in it sits unused.

  8. Under Internals there is currently only one Classification to select and that is 'Loyalty program'.

    This is too generic, and doesn't indicate which program the member belongs to (Accor has three distinct loyalty programs) as well as which membership tier or level the guest is currently at (are they entry-level or a mega VIP platinum or diamond member)?

    I would like to recommend that on the Profile screen that Files and Merge be moved down and a dedicated section for Loyalty be added, that can be fully customisable to the hotel's needs. This way we can have all programs and…

  9. When people fill in the online check-in they reach the last step and are required to fill in their credit card details. In our country (the Netherlands) it's not customary that people own a credit card and are therefore often stuck at this step of the online check-in and don't know what to do next. It would be helpful to put a custom message at this step of the online check-in like "To proceed with the online check-in you're gonna need a creditcard. If you do not want to leave your creditcard details here or you don’t have one: no…

  10. We're facing difficulties in some properties where under aged guests are checking in online. There should be a way to stop those online check in. At the moment they could just pick up the key on the operator kiosk and go to the room. Therefore we would accommodate them, without knowing they are under the allowed age, which is against the law. We do have the responsibility to control the age of the guest. This already happened and cause complains and frustrations on hotel and guest side.

  11. Question: online check-in.

    Can a different background be placed per hotel there?Now guests see large buildings. This has nothing to do with our company!

  12. When you are in the booking engine, the property logo appears at the top left. On most websites, when you select the logo it brings you back home. In the Mews Booking Engine it does nothing. There is an "X" Box at the far top right corner that accomplishes this but with some users the "X" may mean to close the window. It would be a nice feature to be able to click on the logo and return to the home screen where ever you are in the booking engine.

  13. Turn navigator in a complete concierge, where guest can, on top of what's already available:
    - View all details of the reservation: PRICE, info about the space selected, ...
    - manage the reservation (change dates, cancel it, add or remove guests, ...)
    - purchase stay services (already present in the be) in advance

  14. It would be great if guests would receive an automatic e-mail after departure to review their stay and if we could choose to show these reviews to other guests in the distributor when choosing/booking a room.

    Alternatively, guest can be asked to provide review during online check-out as well.

    Hello from the Mews product team,

    Thank you for your suggestion, we have updated your request and set it as one to be upvoted by the Mews Community.

    Remember you can share a link to your request so that your colleagues can also upvote your suggestion.

  15. Currently, if we set a restriction of 3 days (weekend) and guests search for a stay of 2 days the system offers the guest the next weekend where there is no restriction instead of offering/showing the restriction.
    So, show the guest the restriction so they can change their stay to 3 days to book at our property.

  16. If you have set certain restrictions (MLOS / CTA / CTD / ...) in Mews, it would be nice if the guest can see them in the Distributor. Right now the guest only gets a feedback of no availabilities, which is incorrect in most of the times.
    If the guest could see active restrictions in the calender it would result in not loosing business by showing no availabilty.

  17. Currently customer added email can be disabled only in GA, for all guest. If a property is using a third party integration for guest journey (for certain guests), it would create duplicate emails and guest will receive too many mails.
    Would it be feasible to decide for each reservation if customer added email should be sent?

  18. Please allow properties to disable the online check-in function at the guest portal.

    It is great that guests can access the guest portal, use the chat, see the reservations and fill in personal details as well as personal details of the other members that are traveling.

    We would like to keep the "chat with us" placeholder in the confirmation and prearrival email templates so guests can access the guest portal, check their reservations, chat with our reservations' team and fill in personal information, but deactivate the online check-in option.

    By default the online check-in is not activated when the reservation…
