Fontainebleau Resorts will utilize Apple technology to create the first "paperless" hotel room at its Miami (fall 2008) and Las Vegas resorts (2009). The combination of Fontainebleau's rich legacy with Apple's expertise in open innovation and accessible/ personalized media, will allow Fontainebleau's guests to experience a new hotel standard.
Specifically, simple and intuitive options for booking and pre-planning will be offered online at Fontainebleau.com, interactive programming will be available throughout the resort, and the highlight of the program - a personal iMac in every guest room assisting guests in customizing their vacation; inspiring them to share memories; encouraging personal expression and creating immediate actionable guest feedback. As a result, Fontainebleau has unlocked the potential to cut back on more than half a million pounds of saved newspapers alone.
Using a simple and consistent interface, Fontainebleau.com will provide guests access to many of the same information and planning features from their own home, laptop or mobile device. Customer information will be seamlessly integrated with the on-property devices so that check-in kiosks will recognize details about a customer such as a prior request for a hypoallergenic pillow or an outstanding newspaper preference selection.
