“We opened our Embassy Suites in February this year and it is already a favorite of people coming to Akron for business, sporting events, reunions, weddings and other activities. Our FlyteBoard hotel information display will provide guests with airline schedules and gate information for nearby Akron-Canton Airport and be an attractive reader board for property events. We offer a personalized guest experience and FlyteBoard is part of that,” said Julie Karam, Director of Sales and Marketing for the Embassy Suites by Hilton Akron Canton Airport.

Karam noted the property is the newest Embassy Suites format with a smaller footprint and pampers guests with free 24-hour airport shuttle service, a hot breakfast and evening cocktail reception. “Since we have 6,000 feet of conference space, FlyteBoard’s hotel information display will be valuable to guests for on-property activities. The system will be mounted in a high-traffic area between the front desk and our elevators for convenient visibility. The Doppler Radar will be a valuable addition because changing weather in the mid-west often affects air travel.”

“The Embassy Suites by Hilton Akron Canton Airport is unique. It has a balanced guest mix of business, corporate and social guests that keep the hotel busy seven days a week,” said Scott Triphahn, Flyte Systems Vice President. “FlyteBoard is the perfect addition to its list of travel amenities because it lets guests relax and have confidence in their travel plans.”
