Google Teams With Hip Partners For Chromebook Sampling Opportunities

Ace Hotel New York and Google have teamed up to put the brand new Chromebook in the hands of guests and lobby visitors at Ace Hotel New York.

“For the savvy travelers who stay at the Ace, the speed, simplicity and security of Chromebooks are an ideal tool to keep you always connected no matter where you are,” said Caesar Sengupta, Director of Chrome OS at Google.

Between July 1 and September 30, 2011, Ace Hotel New York is putting an Ace Chromebook in every guest room and behind the front desk for lobby visitors.

In related news, Virgin America passengers who are flying on Virgin America between the airline’s home airport in San Francisco and either Boston, Chicago O’Hare or Dallas airports between July 1 and September 30 will be able to check out a Chromebook at the gate. During flights, passengers can test the Chromebook using a free in-air WiFi pass.
