VILANO BEACH, FL - January 3, 2004 -- HotAir Network Group is pleased to announce that Hampton Inn Vilano Beach has successfully implemented HotAir Network Group's solution for high-speed Internet access (HSIA). Hampton Inn Vilano Beach, owned by Hilton Hospitality Inc., features 94 upscale guest rooms and is rated as on of the top 10 Hampton Inns in the nation. HotAir completed the installation of both high-speed wired and wireless coverage in all guest rooms this month. Every hotel guest now has access to the Internet in order to check email, surf the web or connect to their corporate VPN.

"We were immediately impressed with the HotAir solution that allows us to seamlessly combine our existing wired solution with the HotAir wireless offering under one plan. HotAir has integrated the two solutions and offers comprehensive technical support, allowing customers to quickly connect with the solution with which they feel most comfortable," commented Vesko Ivanov, General Manager of Hampton Inn Vilano Beach.

The HotAir solution begins with the installation of a customized high-speed wireless network specifically configured to ensure the elimination of dead zones and provide secure, quality connections in every guest room. HotAir's solution includes a comprehensive set of marketing and sales support materials, 24x7 technical support and a wide range of equipment to support every guest's needs.

This site brings the total number of US HotAir hospitality properties to 25 in five states. In addition to Hampton Inn, properties currently using the HotAir service include Holiday Inn, Sheraton, Radisson, Jameson Inn, Signature Inn and Best Western.

"Hampton Inn has a very stringent brand standard, enforced by the parent company Hilton Hospitality Inc. The program, Hilton Honors, requires HSIA throughout the property," said Steve Gould, President of HotAir Network Group. "The Vilano Beach property offers both wired and wireless access in every room. HotAir manages the entire solution and provides service equal to the reputation of the property."
