St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) March 30, 2007
The St. Louis Airport Marriott Hotel is one of the first Marriott International properties to offer the new HDTV and connectivity panel as in-room technology.
Business travelers and computer-savvy guests can now use the digital devices they need in addition to laptops and high-speed Internet access to contribute to their productivity on the road.
"Our Executive Room technology package is unlike anything offered in the metropolitan St. Louis area," said Doug Dean, director of sales and marketing at the St. Louis business hotel. "The 32-inch LCD flat panel television is a big differentiator in the guest experience, and the ease of connectivity to laptops and other digital devices enhances the satisfaction of our guests."
According to Marriott, the Marriott Hotels & Resorts, JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts, and Renaissance Hotels & Resorts will become the first lodging brands to offer high-definition, LCD televisions with a digital connectivity panel in all its guest rooms. The new plug-in panel lets guests connect a host of digital devices to view on the flat panel, high-definition screen, including laptops, camcorders, digital cameras, video games and more. The standard 32-inch televisions are also equipped with a 25-watt stereo speaker system so guests can listen to the tunes on their MP3 players and iPods; no headphones required.
For example, the screen can be split so guests can watch TV while checking e-mail or researching on the Internet. Or, they can relieve stress playing a video game while listening to an iPod at the same time. With the new HDTV, the number of television channels is also increasing from the current base of 28 to as many as 64 stations in the U.S. and Canada. These include the popular NFL Network and the Science Channel, as well as great family choices, such as Disney, HBO Kids and the Cartoon Network
"The response from our customers toward the in-room technology has been very positive," said Area General Manager, Joe Uhl. "Our St. Louis hotel guests have told us that it has provided them with unbeatable entertainment capabilities while also helping them get their work done."
