Amalfi Hotel Connects with StayOnline
Atlanta, GA – May 12, 2004 –  Hostmark Hospitality Group’s first Amalfi Hotel, located in the heart of Chicago, will be adding to their guest’s unique experience by offering StayOnline’s 100% wireless and wired solutions as a complimentary amenity.

The 215-room upscale luxury independent hotel is the newest flagship brand for Hostmark. Designed with an Italian influence, the hotel stresses impeccable service and a superior level of business amenities . Says Chris Gutzler, Corporate Director of M.I.S., “StayOnline met our high standards for quality of product and service as well as pricing.”

“Entering a market with a new brand identity means you have to be on target every time out,” adds Gutzler. “StayOnline was able to engineer a wireless system to fit our particular needs and follows through in delivering a high quality experience.”

“Amalfi was created around the guest experience,” says Antonio DiMilia, President of StayOnline. “Wireless connectivity is a natural fit. Connection any time from any location – at their convenience. We are excited to be able to work with Amalfi to make that happen.”

Hostmark launched Amalfi earlier this year after retrofitting a building that once housed flight crews. DiMilia says the retrofit wasn’t difficult for StayOnline’s engineers. “When engineered to address a buildings unique needs, Wi-Fi is not only a viable, cost effective solution, we feel it is the only solution.”
