Bittel's new Jacob Jensen HT series trimline guestroom phone has been chosen as a standard for the U.S. launch of the urban lifestyle brand AC Hotels by Marriott. The first AC Hotels by Marriott opened in New Orleans in November at the Cotton Exchange Building and features the Bittel HT20 phone. The AC Hotels by Marriott Kansas City, Mo., Westport will follow suit when it opens next month, and installations will continue at properties in Miami and Chicago early this year. More than 30 AC Hotels by Marriott are scheduled to open within the next three years throughout the U.S. and Latin America.
Designed specifically for the hotel space, Jacob Jensen HT20 was originally developed in Denmark through a close partnership between Bell Xpress A/S and the Jacob Jensen Design Studio. As of May, Bittel has been named the exclusive manufacturer for the hospitality market. The HT20 handset can be freestanding or mounted on the wall.
The HT20 features a sleek small footprint; single line trimline; keypad in handset; flash, redial and volume control; and a five-year warranty.
