Within five miles of Four Seasons Hotel Silicon Valley stand three technological landmarks that serve as constant reminders that you are at the tech helm and “birthplace of Silicon Valley” – the first Apple computer on display at the Computer History Museum, the famous Googleplex, and the Hewlett-Packard Garage. Combined with many guests in the technology industry, it’s no surprise that Four Seasons Hotel Silicon Valley is the first hotel in Silicon Valley to implement Foli, a new iPad app that gives guests access to complimentary magazines for their iPads during their stay.

Four Seasons Hotel Silicon Valley is the first hotel in the valley to offer Foli for their guests. “We are proud to be technology leaders,” says Tracy Mercer, General Manager of the Four Seasons Silicon Valley, of the new Foli app. “It was the perfect opportunity to demonstrate that we can be high tech, innovative and improve the guest experience by providing something new.”

Foli allows hotels to create a digital magazine rack that guests can access from their iPads. Guests who download the free Foli iPad app have unlimited access to premium magazines, in addition to the Four Seasons magazines. However, as soon as guests check-out and leave the Hotel, the content cannot be viewed. It’s a powerful way to distribute content to guests during their stay such as in-room services and dining menus.

“We are excited to offer Foli because it enhances the guest experience and leverages geo-fencing technology, which is pretty innovative,” explains Mercer. “Foli is a perfect fit for the Four Seasons Hotel Silicon Valley, especially given we are in the heart of Silicon Valley.”
