Vegas Hotel to Include iMacs in Every Room
by , 9:55 AM EDT, June 2nd, 2008
Apple's iMac is about to become a standard feature in one Las Vegas hotel's rooms. Fontainebleau Las Vegas, scheduled to open in the fall of 2009, struck a deal with Apple to include Internet-connected iMacs in guest rooms, and to include Apple technology in other parts of the hotel as well.
According to the hotel's promotional brochure:
Fontainebleau guests experience a new sensory landscape through an innovative relationship with Apple. The program includes intuitive and simple options for booking and pre-planning stays online and interactive programming throughout the resort. An iMac in every guest room inspires guests to share memories and encourages personal expression.
Fontainebleau has not said if it will be using Apple's AirPort Base Stations for wireless Internet access, or if it will use Macs and Mac OS X-compatible software in-hotel administrative work.
Apple sounds like a good fit for a hotel resort that is highlighting its innovative designs and hip looks, and the deal means that the all-in-one iMac will find itself in front of potential users that otherwise might not have considered using Mac OS X or a Mac.
