Toast is coming to hotels, as the popular POS has added new features that will allow a more seamless experience for hotel restaurants looking to improve functionality.

A good POS is always evolving. Whether it be adding simple features to improve functionality or adding security measures to keep protecting users, the best POS systems are improving hardware and software on a consistent basis to make life easier for restaurant and retail business owners alike.

Fortunately, Toast POS is among those best POS systems, as it is officially launching some great features aimed at making life easier for hotel restaurants.

Toast POS Launches Hotel Restaurant Features

Announced in a company blog post, the popular POS provider is launching Toast for Hotel Restaurants, a new feature aimed at streamlining the unique operations of hotel restaurants around the country.

The new solution will provide a wide range of new features to POS, the most important of which is the ability to process room charges directly from the POS system. Whether it's the hotel bar or a full-service restaurant, you'll be able to easily charge drinks, food, and everything between to the room, an integral tool for any hotel restaurant.

Toast Hotels Square

“Hotels are adding more curated food and beverage experiences, but they often lack the ability to let guests order and pay on their own terms across hotel properties,” said Aman Narang, president and co-founder of Toast in the post. “The powerful combination of Toast’s cloud-based point-of-sale integrated directly with hotel property management systems will allow us to become the trusted technology provider for hotel food and beverage operations.”

Another function of Toast for Hotel Restaurant will be allowing the all-in-one POS hub to integrate with a wide range of hotel property management software (PMS). According to the post, Toast will now directly integrate with Stayntouch and Barefoot PMS, with other integrations like ClockPMS, Guesty, Infor Hospitality Management Solution, MEWS and SkyTouch Hotel OS being available through Omniboost, an accounting automation service for modern hotels and restaurants.

Is Toast a good POS system?

Toast is definitely one of the better POS systems out there. We found in our research that it offers a comprehensive platform providing strong menu customization and 24/7 support via phone, email, and live chat. Additionally, it's perfect for businesses operating within the Android system, as its branded hardware runs on the popular operating system.

Now, if you're the owner of a hotel restaurant, these features should make Toast a no-brainer. These hotel restaurant-facing features are a boon for anyone looking to implement these necessary functions, and they'll make it easy to keep track of everything without having to mix and match too many software options.

We don't believe Toast is the best POS for restaurants, however — our research found that Square POS was actually a better solution, thanks to its robust restaurant-specific hardware and notably lower price compared to competitors.
