In case you missed the buzz, we were recently named one of the Best Geek Hotels in the World in 2010 by Hotel Chatter.
We are proud to be the first hotel in the United States to offer an all-access in-room media service, made possible by an Apple Mac Mini in every guest room.
You can now surf the web, view your bill, watch movies, and conduct business on the television in your room, all at the touch of a button.
In-room access will never be the same.

“While it’s no longer enough to outfit the hotel biz center with an iMac, it is another thing to put Mac Minis in the guest rooms which is what this Joie De Vivre Hotel in Sacramento has done. The “one-stop media portal,” called Joie Connect, allows guests to connect to the internet so they can check their email, Twitter or Facebook, download music from iTunes and stream movies from Netflix and Hulu. Guests can even order room service and check-out from this system. All rooms at the hotel have Mac Minis and JDV has plans to put more Mac Minis in select hotels by the end of 2010.”

“Apple fans will go for the Citizen Hotel in Sacramento, which has installed Mac Minis in guest rooms. The Mini is connected to a flat-panel TV, enabling you to e-mail, stream video from Hulu and Netflix, use Google to help you get acquainted with the city, order room service, and check out when you’re done.”

“Hotel Chatter, which published the list to celebrate Geek Pride Day, pointed to the Mac Minis in every room at The Citizen as a big draw to geeks. Joie Connect, as the service is called, “allows guests to connect to the internet so they can check their email, Twitter or Facebook, download music from iTunes and stream movies from Netflix and Hulu,” Hotel Chatter says. Want to take geekiness to the next level? Check in to The Citizen, turn on your Joie Connect and use it to check in on Foursquare. That ought to be worth a badge.”
