Marriott International has begun testing mobile wireless check-in at its technologically sophisticated Marriott Town Center hotel in Redmond, Wash., the world headquarters of the Microsoft Corp.

During the test, Marriott guests can use Microsoft devices and Marriott software to connect to the hotel's property management system and check in while in transit to the hotel.

Based on the test results, Marriott said it will develop a further mobile wireless check-in rollout plan.
