Hyatt has introduced the industry’s first customized iGoogle page for its hotel guests. Guests can use Hyatt’s complimentary Wi-fi to access Google’s most popular tools while viewing relevant, local content! A simple and smart idea that gives travelers information at their fingertips and in a user-friendly manner. With the content overload of web 2.0 and the proliferation of sites promising everything from a-z, web users need to make sense of things – fast and easy! Few companies serve up information better than Google! Hotels occasionally operate under the assumption that visitors have had all the time to research a destination and its myriad attractions. In the age of weekend vacations and last-minute-getaways, the traveler is looking for info on the go or on site!
