The W Chicago City Center and Sheraton on the Park Sydney are the first in Starwood’s global portfolio to showcase Cisco TelePresence. Further, Sheraton on the Park is the first in Australia to unveil a public Cisco TelePresence meeting suite. Now hotel guests and corporate clients can be brought together in a true-to-life meeting setting, despite more than 9,000 miles apart and a 17 hour time difference.
In today’s press event, media in both locations had a seat at the table and were able to meet “face-to-face” utilizing ultra-high definition video, superior audio and life-size imagery of all participants.
In addition to the W Chicago and Sheraton on the Park Sydney, inaugurated as part of this partnership with Tata Communications, other Starwood locations planned to open throughout 2010 include The Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers, Sheraton Centre Toronto, The Westin Los Angeles Airport and other key domestic and international business markets such as Dallas, San Francisco, Brussels, Paris, Hong Kong and Frankfurt.
