Today Sheraton Hotels & Resorts and Microsoft Corp. announced that Microsoft Surface would be featured in the lobbies of select Sheraton hotels in Boston, Chicago, New York, San Francisco, and Seattle.
Sheraton will be the first hotel to offer Microsoft Surface, creating a new Sheraton brand experience that will bring interaction, connectivity and a social setting to the lobby, providing guests with a new way to explore local tourist highlights and enhance their hotel stay.
Microsoft announced the multi-touch table dubbed Surface over a year ago. Microsoft Surface is a 30-inch display in a table like form factor that several guests can use simultaneously. The user interface works without a traditional mouse or keyboard, allowing people to interact with content and information in a more natural and familiar way, by using their hands and gestures.
Applications running on the Sherton Surface are CityTips, Sounds of Sheraton and Sheraton Snapshots.
