Wyndham Indianapolis West Hotel Enhances Guest Experience with Flyte Systems Real-Time Airport Flight Display
April 16, 2013 ??The Wyndham Indianapolis West Hotel provides guests at the busy group convention property with an amenity that makes a tangible difference in their travels. ?Many of our guests have never seen airport flight schedule displays at a hotel, and they are impressed that we think enough of their convenience to provide one in our lobby,? said Craig S. Toby, the property?s Director of Sales and Marketing.
The Wyndham Indianapolis West Hotel is a busy 407-room group convention property with 35,000 ft of meeting space located near the Indianapolis International Airport. The property provides free 24-hour airport shuttle service. ?Most airport properties do that,? Toby said. ?But, when guests enter our lobby they instantly see the same FlyteBoard airline schedule display they trust at airports around the world. Nearly all our guests fly here, and most of them go straight to the FlyteBoard and comment on how it shows their gates, and delayed and cancelled flights for all airlines that come to Indianapolis.?
Toby noted his property also offers the FlyteChannel guestroom television service and FlytePass boarding pass printing near the FlyteBoard where guests print their boarding passes before getting on the shuttle.?Flyte Systems?supplies the Wyndham Indianapolis West?s travel services. Flyte Systems is the leading provider of?airport travel information?displays anddigital signage?content for the hospitality industry, digital signage, convention centers and related businesses.?Click here?to request information on Flyte Systems’ airport travel and guest information services.
?We have 5 to 10 corporate site-visits a week, and my sales team points out our FlyteBoard and other travel services as soon as they begin their tour. These services set our property apart,? Toby said. ?This past winter many guests who saw on the FlyteBoard their flights were cancelled by storms, extended their stay. This is much easier while they are on property. If they learned about the cancellation at the gate, they might end up at another property. The system costs a nominal monthly fee and its value to the Wyndham Indianapolis West far outweighs its cost.? Flyte is the only?full service?flight information display solution that provides real-time departure information.
