News for the Hospitality Executive
Orlando, FL – May 10, 2011 – The Hilton Inn at Penn, Philadelphia’s smartest hotel, is aptly living up to its reputation by installing Intelity ICE (Interactive Customer Experience™) Touch on iPad in each one of its 238 guest rooms. This in-room guest feature, part of a $10 million renovation project designed to make this savvy, new hotel more eco-friendly, will allow guests to order up to 30 guest services from the convenience of an iPad. The benefit? The Hilton Inn at Penn provides guests with the best service in Philadelphia while reducing its printing costs by up to 90 percent.
During their stay, guests at The Hilton Inn at Penn will bask in the luxurious comfort of ordering room service, making spa appointments, coordinating local transportation, making restaurant reservations and more all with the touch of a finger on their in-room iPad. Beginning this summer, the hotel will also be offering complimentary Internet to its guests.
“Intelity’s ICE Touch on iPad will be a great instrument in helping us achieve our sustainability goals,” said Greg Stafford, general manager. “Not only will we be able to drastically reduce our paper consumption and printing costs, but it also serves as a tool to show our Hilton Inn at Penn guests that sustainability and luxury can easily coexist.”
Technology such as Intelity ICE has rapidly started playing a major role in helping the hospitality industry provide more sustainable options for consumers. Included among the hotel’s other renovations are the installation of an Evolve energy system, which helps to reduce guest room electricity consumption by as much as 45 percent and low flow toilets which reduce water consumption a third.
“When Intelity ICE was conceived, it was done with the purpose of providing simple solutions for real challenges in the hospitality industry,” said David Adelson, CEO, Intelity. “The idea that our product can be an essential part of something that is much bigger, like helping hoteliers to significantly lower their carbon footprint, is one of the best rewards of using our technology.”
Intelity, headquartered in Orlando, Florida, is a hospitality software solution company focused on the self-service marketplace. Its ICE software with guest interface and “ICS” (ICE Control System) backend management was the recipient in 2011 of the industry’s “Most Innovative Hospitality Technology” award in a global vote by hoteliers. Intelity designs its software/hardware products with a focus on generating higher hotel revenues, reducing operating costs and increasing guest satisfaction.
