1. City Inn Hotels: City Inn hotels in the UK took a big leap earlier this year when they announced that all of their hotels would have in-room iMacs (pictured above.) The computers also double as the room's TV--even cooler. However, be forewarned: some guests report that the system kept crashing as they tried to switch from the TV to Internet. Rates start at $250 a night.
2. Fontainebleau Resorts: When the Fontainebleau Hotel reopens in Miami Beach after a stunning $1 billion makeover, all of the tricked-out rooms will include iMacs. Woot. This initiative by Fontainebleau gets incredibly impressive when you consider that the Las Vegas outpost of the hotel will have iMacs in all of its 3,889 rooms. Special opening rates in Miami Beach to start at $239 a night.
3. Tribeca Grand Hotel: This hotel's iStudio suite has been kicking around for a few years and even made our Best Geek Hotels List over a year ago, but the room is still bad-ass. Now if only the rest of the hotel would upgrade. Rates start at $299 a night.
4. Hotel Diva: This quirky hotel near San Francisco's Union Square boasts four older generation iMacs on site--one in every Diva lounge found on each floor. Also, its sister hotels Hotel Union Square and Hotel Metropolis have iMacs in their kids suites. Rates start at $150 a night.
5. Avenue Hotel, Chicago: This hotel offers "Tech Rooms" which come complete with an iMac computer, color printer and a "dedicated" T1 line. Don't forget about the hi-def LCD TVs and the iHome docking station. Rates start at $329 a night.
Seriously, if you are staying in Montreal anytime soon, stay at the aloft. This is the perfect hotel. AND, they run iMacs in their lobby! When you sit down, you are asked if you would prefer using Mac OS X or Windows. You select your system and voila, the iMac is ready to go (of course, WHY would anyone choose Windows???). If Steve Jobs ever designed a hotel, he would make it an Aloft. No doubt about it.
Actually, we sorta hope not, 'cause Jobs would be changing the hotel's design every two years and charging you more (zing!) Also, iMac presence varies from Aloft to Aloft. For instance, the Alofts we hit up in California and Massachusetts didn't have iMacs -- we're told that every Aloft provides computers, but it's up to the property as to which kind to provide. Rates start around $120 a night.
