The Ritz-Carlton, Cancun Unplugged: Introducing New PCMCI Card Amenity

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–June 12, 2002–For business and leisure travelers who need to remain involved in critical decisions, important net events and daily communication while out of the office, The Ritz-Carlton, Cancun now provides wireless Internet access via laptop or PDA with the PCMCI card.
Introduced at the resort this week, the card allows hassle-free Internet access from anywhere on property. Guests are already using the card at the pool, beach and during meeting breaks to check e-mails, the stock market and read the newspaper online. The card is available to rent for $35 per day.
In their continuous mission to fulfill guests' needs, the hotel's systems department tested several card models before selecting the PCMCI card as the newest guest amenity. To utilize this service, the hotel's technology butler simply installs the card and driver on the guest's laptop or PDA and they are then free to use the service for the day. The service is also available to guests at The Ritz-Carlton Rose Hall, Jamaica.
A big supporter of this new service, Rooms Executive Jackie Volkart at the Cancun property remarked, Whether it is the need to execute a priority trade or respond to an important e-mail, our guests will never be out of touch. Best of all, they don't have to be confined to their guest room to check e-mails, but can have the turquoise water and white sand beaches of Cancun as their backdrop.
Located on more than 7.5 acres along the Caribbean Sea, The Ritz-Carlton, Cancun features balconies overlooking the ocean from its 365 guestrooms and suites. The resort is the first and only property to receive triple honors from AAA since the association introduced the diamond rating system in 1977, receiving Five Diamond Awards for the resort (five consecutive years) and its two fine dining restaurants, The Club Grill and Fantino. The resort also features more than 27,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor special event and meeting space.
