The Peninsula New York, a hotel synonymous with opulence and over-the-top amenities, has upped the ante for luxury again, and its latest offering sounds like something guests are going to love. The Peninsula, a brand already celebrated for state-of-the-art technological treats like bedside control panels, in-room printer/scanners and flat-screen TVs, is turning up the overnight experience again by teaming up with Beats by Dr. Dre to offer you complimentary access to the latest Beats audio products during your stay at its New York hotel.
When you enter your room, a Beats menu featuring some of the company’s most popular products awaits; the roster includes the iconic Studio Wireless headphones, Powerbeats2 Wireless earphones and the Beats Pill speaker. To borrow any of these items, you need only to dial the front desk and relay your selection. Mere moments later, as if his ears were burning to serve you, a sound concierge will hand-deliver your product (and provide an optional personal tutorial, making it easy for guests of any age to partake in the program). You can also request something from the fitness center staff, instantly upgrading your workout experience.
The program is meant to elevate your listening experience — no matter the reason for your visit to the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel. If it’s for pleasure, both the Powerbeats and Studio Wireless headphones are sweat- and water-resistant, making them the perfect companion for a walk or run outside. Of course, if your stay requires you to handle some business, the Beats Pill, with its built-in speakerphone and internal mic, makes setting up conference calls seamless. And when you finish sealing the deal, celebrate with the small-but-powerful speaker by pairing it via Bluetooth to play your favorite music off your phone. And don’t worry about experiencing any separation anxiety with the speaker or headphones once it’s time to check out, either; all products are available for purchase in the hotel’s spa.
“The ability to surprise and delight our guests with innovative new programs is a hallmark of The Peninsula Hotels,” says Robert Cheng, vice president of marketing for The Peninsula Hotels. “We believe our partnership with Beats by Dr. Dre will offer our guests access to an incredible audio experience that is arguably the most impressive available on the market.”
This partnership is the first of its kind for both companies. And while it may have launched in New York, the Beats products will be available at all 10 Peninsula properties later in the year. For details, click here.
