For some time, Tablet has been established as a valuable resource when it comes to searching for the best luxury hotels and independent boutiques at a more affordable price.

Now, the company has announced a new merger with Michelin, and has unveiled an updated app that includes a Michelin Guide, making it easier than ever to plan a culinary adventure around the world.

Unveiled recently, the Tablet Hotels iOS app has been designed as an easy-to-use tool that helps travellers browse for unique accommodation around the world. It allows users to book hotels, manage trips and get in touch with travel specialists if they need help, while a dedicated Staylist function helps keep track of favourite hotels and experiences. Users can also create custom lists to share with other people. The membership programme offers special perks, including room upgrades, free breakfast, late check-out and spa credits. The app also acts as the membership id for travellers.

One of the most exciting aspects of the new app however is the inclusion of a Michelin Guide, thanks to the tyre company’s recent buyout of Tablet. This means that users can filter through Michelin-rated restaurants by their distance from current location, or if they’ve got an upcoming hotel stay, by their distance from the accommodation, which can be navigated by the app’s map. The Michelin Guide is available for all destinations except Japan, due to licensing reasons.

The app also features Michelin’s Bib Gourmand and Plate-designated restaurants, places that are sure to be more accessible to travellers. “These are restaurants of consistent high quality that are more attainably-priced, and that you don’t need to reserve months in advance. This is intelligence that can improve your travel experience immediately — and it’s travel experiences, not just hotels and restaurants, that ultimately motivate us,” Tablet CEO Laurent Vernhes said.

More information is available at the official Tablet Website.
