The Establishment Hotel in Sydney, Australia – a boutique hotel located in Sydney’s financial district – is touted as the world’s first to offer iPad 2s in every guest room. Apparently the hotel ‘acted quickly’ as soon as the iPad 2 launched in Australia on March 25th, and now has them deployed in all 31 of their rooms.
The iPads, which are provided free of charge to all guest rooms, include a selection of music, movies and apps. In particular the hotel includes a welcome video to the hotel, a broad selection of international newspapers on the iPad, travel applications such as Trip Advisor, a Merivale bar and restaurant guide and of course Angry Birds. The hotel also features unlimited free WiFi for all guests and an Apple TV with surround sound system in each of their rooms, letting guests AirPlay content from the new iPads to the TV or sound system in their rooms.
That’s a heck of a sweet setup if you’re an iPad fan. And if you’re not, that should be enough to make you one by the end of your stay.
Any of you planning a trip to Sydney soon?
