SPRINGFIELD, Ill. - President Abraham Lincoln Springfield - A DoubleTree by Hilton, part of DoubleTree by Hilton's fast-growing global portfolio of upscale, full-service hotels, announces that they are the first hotel in the Springfield region to offer Digital Key technology for guest room check-in. After downloading the Hilton HHonors app on a smart device, guests will be able to choose a room, check-in and enter their guest room, all from their phone - allowing them to skip the front desk entirely.

"We are committed to continuously improving the guest experience and utilizing cutting edge technology" said General Manager Robert Sabin. "Digital check-in and Digital Key are great ways for us to continue to offer our guests the best service in the Springfield area."
