The Lanesborough Offers Complimentary In-Room Laptops
PC people, rejoice: we know we've sort of got it bad for iMacs in hotels (yeah, yeah, we know; we're those Mac people), but now we've got hot news for the PC folks who get psyched when they hear the Windows startup sound: The Lanesborough (a St. Regis Hotel in London) has announced that they're placing Sony VAIO Laptops in all guestrooms, and they're free for guests to use.
According to the press release, there are actually other hotels in London that "charge as much as £200 for Laptop rentals" (um, ew), but The Lanesborough is fo' sho' the first London hotel to give them to you for free.
Oh, and yes: WiFi is also free (woulda been a pretty lame-o sneaky trick if it wasn't, huh?)
Room rates at the Lanesborough start at £355, or $582. Other free amenity goodies included with that room rate: unlimited movies on demand, fresh fruit and mineral water, tea and coffee on arrival and with wake-up calls, and a "digital music library with extensive playlist."
