Comfort Inn & Suites Boston Logan adds mobile device charging

Comfort Inn & Suites Boston Logan International Airport now offers guests portable mobile device charging from Kube Systems. By simply leaving a credit card or drivers’ license at the front desk, one of five charging Kubes can be taken to their rooms or the hotel’s lobby, function space, breakfast area, indoor swimming pool, Margaritas Mexican Restaurant, outdoor patio or onsite laundry to power up.
“At the Comfort Inn & Suites Boston, we are always striving to do something extraordinary that will help make our guests’ trips more seamless, memorable and stress free,” GM Meredith White said. “Making our customers happy and comfortable is extremely important, especially since most are staying for a quick airport layover. With guests frequently asking front desk staff if they can borrow a charging cord, we went on a search to find a product that all guests can use despite the type of device they want to power.”

The Kube 5 is sold as a set of five portable units and a recharging tray. Kubes can be strategically placed throughout the hotel or they can be made available individually to guests. Each Kube can be programmed with a variable timeout function to limit user time and avoid power squatting. The charging Kubes features three built-in connectors, two USB ports and comes with Qi wireless charging that enables guests to simply rest or “drop and charge” their mobile devices. Each provides up to nine hours of charge time at speeds comparable to those from wall outlets.

The Kube 5 portable is kept behind the front desk at the Comfort Inn & Suites Boston. When a guest requests a charging cord, front desk staff offer a charging Kube in exchange for collateral. On average, guests ask to use a Kube seven to 10 times a day, and each Kube is in use for approximately two hours and then returned.
