News for the Hospitality Executive
Phoenix (June 15, 2011) – The Westmont Hospitality Group, the largest privately-held hospitality group, installed more than 250 guestLINK™ connectivity panels into their guest accommodations at the Fairmont Palliser and Fairmont DC hotels this past March. guestLINK™ will also be installed in additional properties by year end.
The Fairmont Palliser, centrally located in downtown Calgary, is near the city’s business and financial district. Likewise, The Fairmont DC bodes well for business and leisure travel as it situated in Washington’s West End and adjacent to historic Georgetown. Both properties now welcome guests in style with the guestLINK™ PowerWave – known for its auto-sensing, plug-and-play capabilities.
Travelers crave access to cool technology and guestLINK™ is the answer for those who use various portable devices. For hotel guests, it means no more searching in vain for an elusive Ethernet connection or settling for tunes played on the clock radio. Through the guestLINK™ console, users plug in their laptop, DVD or mp3 player, iPad®, iPod®, Android™, Xoom™, personal gaming station, camcorder or digital camera, and enjoy their personal entertainment from the comfort of the hotel room.
"In our continuing efforts to provide guests with the most current technology, we are extremely excited to provide the guestLINK™ connectivity panels in our guest rooms for enjoyment during their stay,” said Ryan Kelly, Director of Purchasing Cadbridge at WHG. “The guestLINK™ product allows compatibility with a large variety of portable devices popular with both our business and leisure travelers."
“As one of the largest privately-held organizations in the world, Westmont Hospitality Group is amongst our proudest partnerships,” said J. Glynn Gross, CEO of Communication Integrators, Inc. and the manufacturer of guestLINK™. “Technology is a key component to enhancing guest experience and it’s fantastic to have the likes of WHG embracing the power of guestLINK™.”
In addition to enhancing the in-room experience, it stands to reason that guestLINK™ may help the hotel to boost its own bottom line. Research conducted in December 2009 reveals that 37% of hotel guests who use guestLINK™ will spend more time using their personal electronics during their stay, creating an opportunity for hotels to generate additional revenue streams by promoting room service and other onsite hotel amenities. Guests also indicated an overwhelming preference for guestLINK™ over other wannabe connectivity products available in the market.
