“Our guests are experienced business travelers with Research Triangle Park companies. Time is valuable to them and they appreciate our EventBoard’s real-time airline flight information to keep them on schedule,” said Brian K. Morgan, general manager of The Hilton Raleigh-Durham Airport. “EventBoard displays airline times from nearby Raleigh-Durham International Airport with property events and weather. Guests quickly check schedules and get meeting information in one place to save time.” Flyte Systems is the only full service flight information display vendor that provides real-time departure information.
“I used FlyteBoard at a property near San Francisco International Airport. I wanted it at our Driftwood Hilton Raleigh-Durham Airport hotel because it is so valuable to guests,” Morgan said. “Our front desk team tells guests where the EventBoard is and what it shows. It brings people together to talk about flights or where they live and creates a sense of community. Guests often ask for an earlier airport shuttle if they see their flight is moved up. This is an opportunity for us to exceed guest service expectations. EventBoard is also part of our property’s sales tours because it shows our attention to guest needs.”
The Hilton Raleigh-Durham Airport at RTP is in the midst of an $8.5 million renovation to convert it from a full-service Hilton to a full-service DoubleTree. The conversion will make it one of the newest properties in its market and enhance its Southern Plantation image.
