Four Star Boutique Brings Mobile Charging to Guestroom

Following a $15 million renovation and rebranding, the four-star, luxury boutique Hotel Eastlund in The Lloyd District of Portland, Ore., is attracting seasoned travelers, business professionals, and urban adventurers alike with its trendy design, state-of-the-art technology and uncompromising guest service. To complement the designer furnishings in its 168 guestrooms and suites, management set out to find phones that 1) mirror the property’s classic style and modern sophistication, 2) have a small footprint, and 3) provide the best user experience. Bittel Americas delivered across the board with its UNOMedia 5 and NEO series.
"There were several requirements on my wish list when shopping for in-room phones, and I was beginning to think I would have to settle for less than the best – until I met Bittel,” said Jenifer Whang, Hotel Eastlund Director of Operations. “Bittel phones are small enough to give our guests more space on the nightstand for their mobile devices; they are great to look at and come in a range of colors that I have never seen before for guestroom phones; they provide convenient mobile device charging that our guests demand; and they even combine the alarm/clock/radio and telephone in one unit.”
With UNOMedia 5, Hotel Eastlund guests can recharge their smartphones, tablets or other devices and listen to their personal music. It’s equipped with four USB ports, a high powered rapid charger and wireless NFC-enabled Bluetooth speakers.
UNOMedia 5 also features Bittel's patented EasyCharge multi function cable to connect guest's mobile devices for easy charging and playing. Supported devices include Apple lightning (iPhone 5 and 6 series, and new iPad), Micro USB (Android, Blackberry and Windows), Apple legacy (iPhone 4s and older), and audio 3.5mm (for music).
NEO also blends design with mobile device charging but in a more trimline package. It offers more style choices, more color choices and a smaller footprint than most devices in the market. NEO features two USB ports and Bittel's patented Multi function charging cable to connect guests' Apple legacy (iPhone 4s and older), Apple lightning (iPhone 5 and new iPad), Micro USB (Android, Blackberry and Windows) and audio 3.5 (for music) mobile devices for easy charging and playing.
The NEO Series comes in analog, SIP and DECT cordless models and is available in silver/black, blue/black, red/black, silver/ash, golden/ash and red/ash color combinations. Each offers up to 10 programmable guest-service keys and a full-length faceplate for hotel name and logo plus phone instruction printing. The NEO series is compatible with all major PBXs for message waiting indicators.
