Canada leading the way in high-tech hospitality?

SoHo MetropolitanHigh-tech hotels are getting more and more sophisticated in Canada, in order to  secure the loyalty of  their visitors — especially the large percentage who travel on business.   Each room in the SoHo Metropolitan in Toronto, for instance, features state-of-the-art entertainment, heated marble floors, remote-control lighting, motorized drapes, laptop-compatible safes and wireless Internet access. Visitors to Vancouver’s  Pacific Palisades Hotel can reserve their own on-site office, complete with ergonomic furniture and Murphy beds for those who like to burn the midnight oil.

BrookstreetAt Ottawa’s high-tech Brookstreet hotel, guests who conduct business on the golf course never need worry about privacy because cart traffic is remotely monitored through LED screens and global positioning. And at the W Montreal, work-related technology — including infrared keyboards, high-speed data port connectivity and multiple phone lines — is balanced with advanced entertainment systems, in-room DVD players, flat-screen TVs and magnetic elevator keys for exclusive floor access.
