Embassy Suites by Hilton Portland integrated Flyte Systems real-time airline flight information into its digital guest information signboard display. The hotel’s lobby display now gives guests continuously updated airline arrivals and departures for Portland International Jetport.
“Our ownership wanted to give guests accurate airline flight information when it acquired the Embassy Suites Portland,” said Jeanne Carpentier, regional director of sales & marketing for the property’s management company Emerald Hospitality. “The property is directly adjacent to the Portland International Jetport and offers 24-hour shuttle service, ‘park and depart’ packages and a number of travel amenities.”
Embassy Suites Portland General Manager Stacy O’Reilly said many guests stay the night before their flight. They can easily check their departure time and relax for breakfast. “We are a short walk from the terminal and some travelers come to have a meal and wait for their flight,” O’Reilly said. “It is much more comfortable than a concourse and they can trust our FlyteBoard to keep them on time. There have been frequent departure delays this summer due to lightning storms. Flyte Systems keeps them informed. The display is easy to understand and always accurate.”
