“Four Seasons guests seek exceptional quality at every turn, and
technology and entertainment are an important part of their experience
with us,” said Ben Shank, general manager of Four Seasons Hotel
Philadelphia at Comcast Center. “Today’s luxury travelers want
customized, personal experiences with fantastic and intuitive amenities.
X1 is simple and user-friendly allowing guests to navigate and discover
the programs they want to watch. With the voice remote, finding a
channel, show or movie is now as easy as the click of a button and a
simple voice command. We believe X1 will help elevate our guests’
in-room experience and create a truly world-class visit.”

Comcast made today’s announcement at The Hospitality Industry Technology
Exposition & Conference (HITEC),
booth #2219, and the launch follows a series of successful X1 for
Hospitality trials at select hotels across the country.

“Comcast has the potential to disrupt the $3 billion United States
business TV market with X1 for Hospitality,” said Greg Ireland,
multiscreen video analyst at IDC. “Products and solutions that have
generated excellent results on the residential side can help businesses,
particularly in the hospitality industry, gain an edge in attracting new
and returning consumers.”

The X1 product that will be featured at the Four Seasons Hotel
Philadelphia at Comcast Center will include:

“X1 has changed the game for millions of people when it comes to
watching television and now hotels can bring that same experience to
their guests,” said Denice Hasty, Chief Marketing Officer, Comcast
Business. “Few brands know more about the importance of experience than
the Four Seasons and we look forward to making their Four Seasons Hotel
Philadelphia at Comcast Center a premier destination with the very best
technology and amenities, all tuned to the unique needs of their guests.”
