Hotel 1000 Announces Complimentary International Calls for Guests

SEATTLE  (March 26, 2013) – Hotel 1000, downtown Seattle’s premier luxury hotel and world leader in hospitality technology, announces complimentary calls to anywhere in the world for all hotel guests during their stay.  Guests are encouraged to call Canada, India, China or Europe on the hotel’s dime as often and as long as they’d like.  This offering is the latest on a long list of complimentary technology features along with two recent tech upgrades conducted by Hotel 1000 a mere six years after opening.

                “Our mission at Hotel 1000 is to provide the highest level of service and state-of-the-art technology to enhance the guest experience,” said Denny Fitzpatrick, general manager, Hotel 1000. “Part of the experience is to not ‘nickel and dime’ our guests, but to include as much as possible in the room rate.  We’ve done this in the past by offering complimentary, high-speed Internet since opening and are now continuing this with free calls to anywhere in the world.”

                This announcement comes on the heels of two recent tech upgrades at Hotel 1000. In late 2012, Hotel 1000 added 100 MB broadband to its already existing 100MB creating two 100MB load balanced bandwidth for fast and efficient Internet use.  Additionally, Hotel 1000 worked with AVI-SPL, nationwide leader in innovative audio visual communications, to install digital media capabilities and upgrade its multi-million dollar technology infrastructure. The upgrades featured full high-definition support, allowing guests to connect a high-definition computer, video or mobile device in any meeting room.
