The OPUS Hotel Vancouver is Now Offering iPhones in Every Room
We like toys – especially high-tech toys that we get to use for free.
Yesterday, OPUS Hotel Vancouver gave us the scoop that they are now offering guests complimentary use of an iPhone during their stay at the hotel.
Now, besides being a nifty high-tech gadget to play with on the streets of Vancouver, why is this so much better than just that? Because, not only does the iPhone serve as the phone in your room, it’s programmed with a one-touch button that instantly connects you to all of the hotel's departments.
Plus, as an added bonus, all incoming and local calls are free, which means that you can save yourself those hefty roaming charges. And there’s more! If you book your stay directly through the OPUS Vancouver website, full Internet capabilities on the iPhone are yours at no charge. It just keeps on getting better and better.
Let’s say you’re walking down Granville Street in downtown Vancouver and you pass a great-looking restaurant you wouldn’t mind trying. You whip out that complimentary iPhone and make a quick call to the hotel’s concierge, who books you in for later that night after you’re all shopped and art galleried out. Or you realize that you've forgotten to ask housekeeping to leave you a pair of logoed slippers. Again, get out that iPhone.
Rest assured that when you check out, the iPhone is automatically wiped clean by a specially designed app to ensure your privacy.
So, thanks OPUS Hotel Vancouver. We thought the complimentary iPads with the virtual concierge were sweet, but this takes the cake!
Rates at the OPUS Hotel Vancouver hover around the $300 CAD mark throughout August and September.
