Fontainebleau goes paperless and puts an iMac in every room

As part of the hotel's renovations, the Fontainebleau is going paperless (not including toilet paper) and putting an iMac in every guest room. By using the room iMac, guests can get information about their stay, book a spa, order in-room dining, create virtual postcards, get the day's weather forecast, get dining and entertainment recommendations... all the basic room necessities are accessed through the computer.

The Miami Beach renovations are scheduled to be finished in the Fall of this year, and Las Vegas is scheduled to be finished in the Fall of 2009.

To watch a demo of what guests can do on the in-room iMac, download the file below. I hope this is something we'll see in many more hotels soon:
