OPUS Vancouver Reinforces Technology is a Lifestyle, Not a Luxury
with Completion of Technolgy Renovation

April, 2012 (Vancouver, BC) – In this fast-paced, high-tech digital world, OPUS Vancouver is staying switched-on and tuned-in to the latest technology. This month, the boutique Yaletown hotel completes a multi-phase technology renovation, including the installation of TELUS Optik TV, the inauguration of a Virtual iPad Concierge program, an original lifestyle-driven website as well as a fresh and engaging mobile website; all reinforcing that technology is a lifestyle, not a luxury.

“Our guests are savvy and expect to encounter the most innovative technology at every touch point,” said General Manager Nicholas Gandossi “Through our technology renovation, which distinguishes us as the only hotel in Canada to offer mobile enabled iPads in every room and the first hotel in the world to offer TELUS Optik TV, we continue to deliver on our promise to remain “Uniquely Stylish and Always Fresh.”

Installation of TELUS Optik TV has already begun. With more than 30 HD channels, as well as access to HD pay-per-view events and the latest HD On Demand movie selections, Optik TV delivers an extensive and engaging IP-based home entertainment experience to hotel guests.

Setting the technology bar high, OPUS Vancouver presents every guest with a Virtual Concierge, a reinvented vision of the personal lifestyle concierge service by way of customized iPads in every room. The only hotel in Canada to offer v2 iPads in every room, OPUS Vancouver partnered with Travelvu to offer a fresh spin on the typical hotel iPad platform by allowing guests to roam the city with their hi-tech companion. A number of fan favourite apps and web links are loaded on each iPad, then further decked out to reflect the personality of one of the hotel’s five lifestyle concierge muses, pointing out their favorite places to shop, dine, exercise, relax and more.

Designed by Travelclick, the hotel’s easily navigable website splashes with vibrant colors  associated with the iconic boutique hotel while incorporating cheeky verbiage, truly evoking the flavor of experience guests can expect while visiting. Accompanying this roll out, the OPUS Hotels has also unveiled a new mobile site, ensuring the lifestyle-inspired website delivers the most impactful experience to mobile device and iPad users.
