Reading in Bed Goes High Tech at THE DAUPHINE ORLEANS
French Quarter Hotel introduces Sony Digital Readers

New Orleans, LOUISIANA- (February 2, 2009)- While one of the newest trends popping up in hotels are bookshelves filled with everything from the classics to the hottest, new bestsellers, the future of literature has arrived at the Dauphine Orleans Hotel. The historic French Quarter hotel will unveil the latest addition to its list of tech-friendly amenities to guests of the Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival, March 25 – 29, 2009. Sony Digital Readers, will be available to guests on a first come, first serve basis to be used in the hotel library or in the guest rooms.

“This newest amenity is an unexpected luxury for business travelers making the Dauphine Orleans their ‘home away from home’ and leisure travelers who are just here to relax and soak it all in,” says Dawn Ledet, Director of Sales and Marketing. “Unveiling the Sony Digital Readers during the Tennessee Williams Festival is no coincidence. We are committed to supporting our local festivals while giving our guests the best possible experience.”

The Dauphine Orleans recently completed a multi-million dollar renovation of its guest rooms and public spaces in the summer of 2008, including other high tech upgrades such as flat panel televisions and complimentary WiFi connectivity throughout the property. “We have to stay ahead when it comes to technology in order to remain competitive in today’s economy,” comments Craig Hulford, Dauphine Orleans General Manager. “It is our goal to provide our guests a 21st Century experience within a 19th Century era property – the best of both worlds, which will keep them coming back.”

The Tennessee Williams Festival is an annual five-day celebration that showcases national and regional scholars, writers, and performing artists. Attendees will enjoy panel discussions, theatrical performances, a one-act play competition, lectures, literary walking tours, musical performances, a bookfair, and more. Rates at the Dauphine Orleans Hotel during the Tennessee Williams Festival are $99.00 per room, per night March 25, 26 & 29; $159.00 per room, per night March 27 & 28.

The Dauphine Orleans Hotel is located in the heart of the historic French Quarter at 415 Rue Dauphine, just steps from the bustle of Bourbon Street and antique shops on Royal Street. A multi-million dollar renovation of the 111-room hotel in June 2008 has created a new era of elegance in this 18th century landmark. Perfect for both business and leisure travelers, the Dauphine Orleans offers modern amenities such as wireless internet, Tempur-Pedic™ bedding, fitness and exercise room, and a saltwater pool.
