Today everyone is geeking about the new iPhone 4.0 but come September hotel geeks will be geeking out over the iPads in each room at The Plaza.

Earlier this week, the hotel announced a new partnership with Intelity, a hospitality software solution company, to create a custom iPads for guests that will control their entire hotel stay from room service orders to concierge requests and wake-up calls. Again, the iPads won't arrive until September but we scored a snapshot of what this custom iPad will look like.

The iPad will also come loaded with newspaper services and destination guides and also having the internet on the iPad will allow guests to satiate all their web browsing urges. (Just because you stay at The Plaza doesn't mean you don't read TMZ!)

The hotel has already offered iPads available to guests in their Palm Court for casual use but having the iPads in the guestrooms will be so much sweeter. (And nearly worth the steep room rate.) Even better, The Plaza promises that come September guests can download a special Plaza app to their iPhones, Blackberries or Androids that will allow them to make requests (again, wake-up calls, room service, even spa appointments) all from their phones.

Now, is it so wrong to want an Eloise-themed skin for this iPad?
