Roomlinx, Inc. has entered into an exclusive five-year agreement with The Kessler Collection to install its new In-room Media, Entertainment & Business Solution and high-speed Internet access application to all new Kessler Collection hotels moving forward.

The first two Kessler luxury properties to go live with Roomlinx are the 104-room Bohemian Hotel Asheville at Biltmore Village, Asheville, N.C. – scheduled to open winter 2008; and the 75-room Bohemian Hotel at Savannah Riverfront – scheduled to open 2009.

Roomlinx is “Redefining the Guest Experience” by providing guests in-room access to media, entertainment, concierge services and office-suite tools through the flat-panel television, proprietary Media Console and software to the portfolio. Roomlinx delivers customized hotel, local and travel information, unique HD on demand content, music, iPod connectivity, games, HSIA, business tools and much more.

The Kessler Collection, owned by Richard C. Kessler, is a portfolio of boutique four- and five-diamond quality hotels, spas and art galleries located in Florida, Georgia, Colorado and New Mexico and now with an office located in Vienna. Known for its luxurious, art-inspired atmosphere and décor, each hotel is uniquely designed and focuses on providing the highest level of service and attention to detail.

“We are pleased to be in partnership with Roomlinx to introduce cutting edge in-room technology to our new luxury properties that is far advanced from any other solution on the market today. This will undoubtedly further enhance our guests’ experience,” says Scott Schreiber, president of Enterprise Hotels, The Kessler Collection. “We are especially intrigued with the Productivity Suite, which allows guests to utilize Microsoft® compatible business tools and Internet Explorer, as well as having the capability to print, burn CDs/DVDs, perform videoconferencing, and participate in instant messaging on the guestroom television.”

Schreiber says that the Roomlinx system – which eliminates the need for Kessler properties to print in-room directories in the future – is also a great vehicle to market onsite property offerings and each hotel within The Kessler Collection, as well as further reiterate its commitment to preserving the environment.

Through solid partnerships, Roomlinx provides every room with a unique system that includes: an optional 32-inch HDTV, a Windows©-based media console, a wireless keyboard and remote both with an integrated mouse, a Roomlinx Proprietary Media & Entertainment Software Package, 24/7/365 help desk support and a complete HSIA network upgrade if requested.

“The Kessler Collection provides the ideal scenario for our new In-Room Media, Entertainment and Business solution,” says Mike Wasik, Roomlinx CEO. “Its core competency is providing quality accommodations that are designed to entertain guests while making them feel comfortable and at home. When you combine this environment with our Media, Entertainment and Business Solution, together we are changing the face of hospitality by delivering a one-of-a-kind guest experience – which, in turn, offers exceptional financial benefits.”

The technology and infrastructure required to support the Roomlinx system is installed with no capital outlay. Roomlinx provides a complete in-room technology overhaul to the property and seamlessly integrates its solution with a hotel’s existing property-management system. Revenues will be generated through on-demand content, advertising, e-commerce and business services; all of which are tailored to fit the needs of the property and its guests.
