The Infusion Beach and Hotel, slated for opening in late 2015 in Palm Springs, Calif., is a multimillion-dollar renovation and rebranding of the existing Garden Vista Hotel by the operators of the acclaimed Infusion Lounge and Hotel Fusion in San Francisco. Some of the high-tech features will be the in-room tablets, set to be installed in every guest room by Crave Interactive.
While its custom-made tablets are currently installed in prestigious hotels across the UK, IBH was the company's first North American signing, delivered in tandem with Crave's Strategic US partner Engineered Lifestyles.
The sleek tablets come preloaded with Crave OS, Crave's proprietary operating system created specifically for the hospitality industry, and allow for instant in-room food and beverage ordering, spa bookings, and guest communications, instantly updateable digital directories and menus, and limitless scope for additional sales and tailored in-room advertising.
The IBH installation will feature Crave T2, a new, updated version of the custom-made Crave tablet, which comes with a docking station designed specifically for use in hotel bedrooms, as well as various other unique Crave features. Crave's tablets are the first in the world to be designed specifically for in-room guest use.
