TAMPA, FL - December 5, 2003 -- HotAir Network Group is pleased to announce that The Westshore Hotel, a Best Western property, has successfully implemented the HotAir solution for high-speed Internet access. The Westshore Hotel has 237 guest rooms and close to 8,000 square feet of conference space.

This will provide every guest and conference attendee with access to the Internet in order to check email, browse the Internet or connect to their corporate VPN.

"HotAir was a clear choice for our property. They quickly understood the unique construction of our property and our need to provide an initial capability that can economically grow to full coverage as demand increases," said Syed Raza, General Manager of the hotel.
