Malibu Beach Inn is worlds first iPhone Inn
Apple geeks have another reason to enjoy their stay at the Malibu Beach Inn. The hotel is a haven for Apple (iPhone or iPod) users because they incorporate a swanky app called Hotel Evolution to your device. An Apple enthusiast but don’t own one? No problem, this is after all the service industry, the hotel happily obliges you with a 16GB iPod touch preloaded with the app. All the guest needs to do is punch in the room number plus security.
Code for access to hotel services like ordering room service, set a wake up call, request dry cleaning, extra blankets or replace forgotten toothbrushes, check messages or set the room to do Not Disturb. Cost to the hotel is about $10 per room, but whether the guest need to reimburse this cost is not known.
