DENVER, CO – May 06, 2009 – Roomlinx, Inc. (OTC: RMLX - News) announced that guests at the Grand Bohemian Hotel in Asheville, NC have unlimited complimentary access to its Interactive TV product which includes: HD Hollywood movies, high speed internet, HD specialty content, international and U.S. television programming, music, business productivity tools, concierge services, games and more via the in-room flat screen television.  Roomlinx completed the installation of 110 systems in March of this year.  Last year, Roomlinx signed an agreement to be Kessler’s (www.kesslercollection.com) exclusive in-room entertainment and HSIA provider for all 13 properties.   The Bohemian Hotel in Savannah, GA is scheduled to be installed this coming June.

The Grand Bohemian Hotel in Asheville, located at 11 Boston Way, is owned and managed by Orlando-based Kessler Collection, owner and operator of 13 luxury boutique, four and five star hotels.  The property had its grand opening April 1st. 

“Our guests were delighted to turn on the TV and be greeted with a very classy interface and have unlimited access to all the Roomlinx features including HD VOD.  Roomlinx has absolutely done it right,” said John Luckett, General Manager. 

“The Grand Bohemian in Asheville is a beautiful property and we are thrilled to have Roomlinx in every room,” said Mike Wasik, Roomlinx CEO. “With our unique branding ability, Kessler and the Grand Bohemian are now providing a seamless brand image to the guest via our Interactive TV product.  Business and leisure guests alike are blown away by the in-room entertainment experience that Roomlinx offers.” 

Scott Schreiber, President of Kessler Collection, added that “Roomlinx provides guests with information and entertainment at their fingertips.  It not only exceeds what our guests have in their homes, but it gives them another reason to return to the Grand Bohemian.  We are thrilled to be rolling out Roomlinx to all of our properties.”

“Having Interactive TV installed at the Grand Bohemian Hotel in Asheville again proves that our product and business model is successful at any property level,” Wasik added. “The Kessler Collection is a luxury property and we are proud to be a part of their image.  Their company branding is present throughout our product in each and every guestroom at the Grand Bohemian.” 

“Both the core Roomlinx team in Denver and the on-site team were very professional and went above and beyond to ensure our new Roomlinx Interactive TV product was installed properly and represented a one-of-a-kind experience for the guest,” Luckett said. “I was impressed with the knowledge and experience of the Roomlinx team and look forward to working with them more in the future.” 

The Grand Bohemian in Asheville features 104 luxurious guestrooms and suites and is just steps away from the gates of the famous Biltmore Estate.  It is a Tudor inspired, boutique hotel with authentic Old World, rustic ambiance while still providing all the modern luxuries synonymous with a contemporary Kessler Collection hotel experience.  This property features 5,000 square feet of exceptional event space, a fitness center, valet parking and the Grand Bohemian Art Gallery.  Guests can dine on-site at the Red Stag Grill with a menu including a masterful blend of chops, game and traditional favorites - all with an emphasis on the freshest local ingredients complimented by an extensive wine list.  Also on-site is the Poseidon Spa where guests will find a myriad of ways to relax and rejuvenate.
