|SALT LAKE CITY, Utah - (Jan. 16, 2007) – iBAHN tm,
the leading provider of secure and reliable broadband services to hotels
and meeting sites, announced an agreement with Marriott to offer Internet
PCs with printers in 250 Courtyard, Residence Inn, SpringHill Suites, and
TownePlace Suites properties.
“We are very pleased with the reliability and functionality of the Internet PC and are excited to provide this amenity to our guests,” said Tim Sheldon, senior vice president for CRST Managed Hotel, North American Lodging Operations. “The Internet PC has provided business travelers easy access to the full suite of productivity tools necessary to be able to travel without a laptop. In addition, the unit ensures the confidentiality of guest information through enterprise grade security features.”
The Internet PC wipes out hard drive and session information after each user. This ensures that guests’ private data is protected and that all users start with a “clean” PC.
Standard office applications are provided, so users have the programs vital to the completion of their work, as well as an Internet browser. If a user needs to retain a file they created on the Internet PC, the information can easily be saved to a CD, floppy disk or USB drive for later access.
In addition, Internet PCs enable business travelers to use the system to printout driving directions, or access local information as a free service of the hotel.
iBAHN’s Internet PC is ideal for business travelers -- and those leisure travelers who find it difficult to remain “unplugged” -- and need a PC. Because of its familiar structure, ease of use, dependability, automated maintenance, and security measures, guests quickly accomplish their goals and maintain productivity while on the road. Marriott guests interested in using an Internet PC may inquire at the property’s front desk.
