“Luxury and boutique meets personality and fun”, claims the website of the Opus hotel in Vancouver, Canada. It now appears that the hotel is living up to their lavish reputation
The hotel has been featured for its trendy location and stellar services in places such as Jetsetter Magazine and The Huffington Post. Opus Vancouver contains 96 rooms that include options such as heated floors and spa bathrooms. In addition to these commodities, The Opus hotel has now become the very first hotel to offer the iPhone for use in every room as opposed to its traditional landline counterpart.
According to Digitaltrends.com, the iPhone is situated on a clock radio and is available for guests to take with them around the city. The iPhone not only helps by providing the guest with a Canadian phone number to avoid international call charges, but it also offers navigational services for guests to explore the up and coming neighborhood of Yaletown (the hotel’s location). The phone is filled with the numbers of many hotel services such as concierge, housekeeping, and room service, as well. There is no need to worry about personal information being seen by other guests on the phone either. After the guest leaves, all of the personal data that has been stored on the phone is completely wiped to guarantee security.
Apparently for the Opus hotel though, this new service is not its only record setting feature. As of March of this year, it began offering the iPad 2 in every room, making it the first hotel in Canada to do so. Needless to say with this amount of technological buzz, it has been named the “trendiest hotel in Canada” amongst Trip Advisor users. "Technology is a way of life today, not just a perk, and that holds true even while traveling," told Nicholas Gandossi, the general manager of the Vancouver Opus, to USA Today.
