U.S. Hospitality Corp. announced the acquisition of 51% of Uniguest of Tennessee, Inc., a leading provider of business center solutions for hotels across the country. The companies will work together to make Uniguest the dominant provider of business center applications and leverage the advertising synergies between both companies.



Uniguest President and CEO Shawn Thomas, in disclosing the development, indicated the strength of U. S. Hospitality combined with the solid business center product of Uniguest will combine to make an incredible partnership that will greatly enhance the technology options that hotels are able to offer their guests.



Thomas built Uniguest from scratch, and has developed more than 160 different installations across the country of the primary Uniguest product, known since 2002 as the Concierge Station(tm). Those 160 locations are located throughout the country, and currently represent over 15 hotel brands. Uniguest will continue to focus on hotels, with a goal of increasing the number of Concierge Station installations to more than 500 by the end of 2005.



Most hotels have had to adopt high-speed Internet access, says Thomas. While that amenity is growing, the conventional desktop PC has developed as a `must-have` in the mainstream hotel lobby or business center-and not just the big business/resort hotels. He goes on to share, Not everyone travels with a laptop computer and when they do, they don`t always work well. Also, some people need remote printing capability. Our Uniguest product delivers a top line PC to the hotel, along with software that prohibits guests from changing the settings, protects children from adult websites, prohibits downloading unwanted files or programs, and has a remote printing feature that allows guests to print to the business center from anywhere on the hotel`s high-speed network. Back that up with Uniguest`s superior customer service and our solution is the most cost- effective solution available to hotels of any budget.



Mark Oldham, CEO of U. S. Hospitality, is equally excited about the acquisition. We provide information to travelers, and have been focused on this mission for 20 years, says Oldham. Now, with Uniguest, we can take the mission to the next level. Our reps have been asking for something new and exciting. With the advertising possibilities with the lobby based or business center computer, we`ve found a great fit with Shawn Thomas and Uniguest.
