Text It, Get It - New Hotel Room Service With Emojis

Room service is one of the greatest things of staying in a hotel and to make the experience even more fun Manhattan's Aloft Hotel just announced a new way to order room service via emojis. You can finally use your emojis for more than hashtagging your Instagram photos.


On arrival, guests are presented with a menu of "packages", which they can request by texting a specific emoji to hotel staff. Text it, Get it (or TiGi for short), a service that allows you to request things simply by sending an emoji.
