In October, we reported that Las Ventanas al Paraiso resort in Los Cabos, Mexico is offering its guest loaner iPods. CNet is now reporting that two more luxury hotels, the Crescent in Beverly Hills and Dream in Manhattan, have followed suit and are offering their guests iPods, too. From the article:
The music players, available from the concierge, come with a special cable that plugs into the Bose speakers in each room, he said. The rooms also feature 37-inch plasma televisions, digital cable and 300-count Egyptian cotton sheets. The luxuries donit come cheap of course. The Dreamis rates range from $275 to $575 a night. A 20GB iPod costs $299.
Out West, The Crescent in Beverly Hills features an iPod Music Minibar in each room. The 40-room hotel, which has a lounge-bar theme, introduced the gadgets, and installed speakers, last year. The devices there also come preloaded with music, with a focus on jazz, lounge and electronica.
