Samoset Resort Goes Wireless with Guest-Tek
WiFi Internet Capabilities

Rockland ME (September 23, 2004) -- Guests at the Samoset, a 178-room AAA Four Diamond resort on 230-oceanfront acres overlooking Penobscot Bay, now have state of the art Internet connectivity to add to the resort's amenities of championship golf , tennis, full service Health Club and the Wine Spectator Award-winning Marcel's Restaurant.

Thanks to Guest-Tek, the world-class provider of broadband technology solutions for the hospitality industry, guests have complimentary, wireless internet access throughout the hotel, from guestrooms to public spaces to the 21,000 sq.ft. of meeting space. Guests can even gain WiFi Internet access from the flagstone terrace patio outside the Breakwater Cafe so they can surf the Internet while watching players navigate the golf course above the blue waters of Penobscot Bay.  The new WiFi service is the first step in an overall guestroom upgrade being planned this fall.

“Our new complimentary WiFi access is the latest service designed to keep guests efficiently connected efficiently with their homes and offices,whenever and wherever they choose,” said Connie Russell, Samoset’s General Manager, in making the announcement. “We have seen an increase in use by our guests -- both business and leisure travelers -- of our Business Center with PC access, document printing and other computer services. Advancing our Internet access capability from dial-up to wireless was the next obvious step; and we're pleased to be able to extend this service, free, to all of our guests.”
