Connection in Douglas County
.Six Flags Fairfield/Pineapple Management Selects
StayOnline as Wireless HSIA Provider
|Atlanta, GA, Nov. 17,
2003 -- StayOnline, the nation’s only 100% wireless high-speed Internet
access provider for the hospitality industry, has added the Six Flags Fairfield
Inn to its portfolio.
“This property is the first that we know of in Douglas County to have fully wireless high-speed Internet Access,” said Matt Carlson, President & CEO of the Douglas County Chamber of Commerce. “This gives us a distinct competitive advantage when it comes to both business and leisure travelers who don’t travel without their laptops.”
“Douglas County is a growing destination, not only for visitors to our area attractions, but for business travelers doing business both here and in the metro Atlanta area. We are very pleased to add StayOnline’s high-speed wireless Internet capability to our portfolio of guest offerings,” said Nancy Slaughter, General Manager of the Six Flags Fairfield.
All of the Fairfield’s 81 guest rooms, as well as its common areas, including the pool deck, are enabled so that guests can use their laptops wirelessly.
The Six Flags property is one of 12 owned and managed by Pineapple Properties that now has StayOnline’s high-speed wireless solution installed. Pineapple struck the deal with StayOnline following the wireless provider’s super-successful showing at HITEC in New Orleans this summer, where the company announced marketing agreements with AT&T Wireless, Historic Hotels of America and Boingo. StayOnline has already completed installation of another Pineapple property, the Coral Bridge Best Western in Fort Myers, Florida.
“Because of our previous experience with StayOnline at our Fort Myers property, their completely wireless access was very attractive to us. It’s the right solution for us because of the cost, its ready availability to our guests, its security features and the fact that StayOnline is an approved Marriott vendor,” said Glenn Pedersen, President of Pineapple Management Services.
“Pineapple has an excellent reputation and is an award-winning developer and management company. We are extremely pleased that they have chosen our 100% wireless solution for this group of highly desirable Marriott properties, including the Six Flags property right in our own backyard, “ said Antonio DiMilia, President and CEO of StayOnline.
Each of the hotels offers amenities specifically geared to business travelers, many of whom are growing more and more dependent upon a fast, accessible connection to the Internet while on the road.
Guests of any of the Pineapple properties will find StayOnline’s ‘plug and play’ capabilities simple to use, enabling them to bypass wires and local area access numbers for their ISPs. StayOnline also provides added layers of encryption (128 bit WEP) through its EZAir(sm) device, and enterprise level VLAN switching, enabling a more secure connection for even the casual user.
“The best thing about our agreement with Pineapple is that many of their hotel guests are repeat customers of the Fairfield and Courtyard brands within the region. By offering StayOnline at all these hotels, the guests are given a consistent and reliable way to access the Internet across state lines, from Florida all the way to Texas. It’s a win-win for everybody,” said DiMilia.
