SuiteSpeed today announced that it will be installing wireless high-speed Internet access (HSIA) in fifty Marriott Fairfield Inns, managed by Sage Hospitality Resources, the seventh largest hotel management company in the U.S.
ÊÊÊÊFairfield Inn expects to provide free high-speed Internet access at approximately 500 hotels by the middle of 2004. Wireless high-speed Internet access will be available in hotel lobbies, meeting rooms and public spaces.
ÊÊÊÊSuiteSpeed is a preferred provider of high-speed Internet solutions for Sage Hospitality Resources which operates over 80 properties including brands such as Hilton, Marriott, Sheraton, Holiday Inn and Choice.

ÊÊÊÊ“We chose SuiteSpeed because of its flexible, upgradeable technology platform that can grow with the Fairfield Inn’s as new WiFi technology becomes available and enhanced security regulations are put into place,” said James Darter, vice president of operations of Fairfield Inns for Sage. “Plus, we feel that SuiteSpeed has the same commitment to guest service and support as we do - it’s top priority for all our employees and our vendors.”
ÊÊÊÊ“Proactive services, like SuiteScope: our preventive network monitoring, are critical to delivering the high level of guest service expected by Fairfield Inns,” said Michael Wasik, president and CEO of SuiteSpeed. “We are excited to be a partner with Sage Hospitality to deliver quality wireless Internet service and support to its guests.”
ÊÊÊÊThe Fairfield Inn properties managed by Sage will be implementing SuiteSpeed’s communication’s gateway, SuiteLink, and its advanced SuiteNet wireless technology for secure, free to roam Internet service throughout its 50 properties nationwide.
