Bangkok to get Apple-powered Sofitel
Bangkok, June 20, 2011
 

THE SOFITEL So Bangkok will open early next year, and is banking on its Apple-based digital hotel entertainment system and service directory to give it a competitive edge.

 

All 238 rooms will offer an Apple Mac mini computer, a high-definition 40-inch flat panel television, a wireless keyboard and trackpad, and high-speed Internet access.

 

The Apple Mac mini will function as a multimedia centre, giving guests access to digital television and radio channels, movies, a music library, a DVD and CD player, and the ability to sync with personal iPods, iPhones and iPads.

 

The hotel, located on the corner of Rama IV and Sathorn Road, will join a host of new upscale properties, including the 224-key The St Regis Bangkok that opened in April, and the 414-room W Bangkok, slated to open middle of next year.
