Hotel trends: iPad2 devices for all guests

All 285 rooms at LA hotel equipped with iPad technology

What has been termed hotels’ ICE technology, in which all hotel rooms are equipped with iPad2 devices that give guests the possibility to order rooms service, arrange airport transfers, book spa treatments or restaurant reservations, call valet parking and so on, has been implemented for the first time ata Four Seasons property – the 285-room Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills.
“Virtually any hotel service can be accessed through ICE, all wireless from the comfort of your guestroom,” the hotel’s GM enthuses. “Staying ahead of our guests is not easy as they are very sophisticated and tech savvy. ICE is the perfect tool to let them work at their speed.”
