WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- April 09, 2013

Comcast Business, a unit of Comcast Cable, the nation's largest video,
high-speed Internet and phone provider to business and residential customers,
today announced that Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham in West Palm Beach, Florida,
has selected Comcast Business Hospitality for data, phone and TV services for
its 112-suite property. The new Comcast services will increase Internet speeds
to 100 Megabits per second (Mbps) using Comcast Ethernet, giving guests faster
Internet access for business or personal use while staying at the hotel. The
increased speeds will also help the hotel staff to conduct their daily
operations more efficiently, and provide the convenience of a single provider
for data, voice and video service.

“Our guests expect to check into our property and conduct business day or
night,” said William Murray, general manager of the Hawthorn Suites – West
Palm Beach. “Because we are an extended-stay hotel, our suites are often used
as a remote office for traveling executives. The increased speed from the
Comcast service allows our guests to work in their rooms with connection
speeds that are the same as what they would have back at their office.”

Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham - West Palm Beach is an extended stay hotel that is
located a short distance from Palm Beach International Airport and is
conveniently located near many businesses and attractions. It caters to
business travelers that are staying in the area for multiple days and people
relocating to the area who are looking for temporary housing. The hotel has a
top ranking by Trip Advisor – it is currently ranked #1 out of 34 hotels in
the Palm Beach area.

Prior to working with Comcast, the hotel had a 3 Mbps service for all of its
guests, and 3 Mbps for back office operations, both from another provider.
With slow Internet connectivity, they decided to make a change in order to
upgrade their technology and remain a top-ranking hotel. After an extensive
review of available service providers, Hawthorn Suites selected Comcast
Business to provide Ethernet, voice and TV services, which are all part of the
Comcast Business Hospitality suite that is designed specifically for the needs
of hotels and motels. The additional bandwidth not only gives guests faster
Internet speeds, but the staff is able to process credit cards more quickly
and handle check-in and check-out faster as well.

“Business travelers want the same level of high-speed connectivity from a
hotel that they get at the office, because business does not stop when you are
out on the road,” said David Lynch, vice president at Comcast Business,
Florida Region. “The Comcast Business Hospitality suite helps top-ranked
hotels like the Hawthorn Suites – West Palm Beach to attract business and
leisure travelers with important amenities – superior technology and
entertainment services that are reliable, fast and backed by 24/7 service and
