Denver Hyatt's eCheck-In

Those e-ticketing kiosks at the airport changed my life—never waiting in line to check-in for a flight again. So, it only makes sense that the same idea is now being applied to hotels. The Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center, opening next week, will let guests swipe a credit card into a kiosk and retrieve the room key. The room has a 32-inch flat screen TV that can be used to order room service, and there is your own personal iPod provided as well. Now, about that free WiFi you've been requesting, I'm afraid... NOT.

CBS 4 Denver is also reporting:

The Hyatt's technology will also help the employees at the hotel.

A special high-tech radio allows them to communicate through text messaging and converts Spanish into English and vice versa.


Special high-tech radio? Let's see...two-way talkie, text messaging—sounds like a cellphone to me. The translation tech? Sounds like a human being. What am I missing here?
