Why do Hilton Garden Inns have color printers guests can use freely, but more upscale hotels offer just free black white printing?

This is pure speculation on my part, but here is a very old press release announcing a partnership between “PrinterOn” and HGI to provide “guest printing services” for the entire HGI chain. The emphasis is on remote printing from a room, but it makes sense that PrinterOn would push color printers for the best possible experience.

Obviously, the HGI chain is positioned mid-market with a likely robust business traveler customer base. So, at the time this deal was inked, this probably looked like a smart, forward-thinking move by HGI to attract more business travelers. Why do I call it a “bad deal”? Well, as far as I can tell, PrinterOn did not manage to capture any more chains after this deal, if we can use the Google results for its website as any indication:

Google results for "printeron"

If you browse the website, you will not see any mention of HGI. The only mention I could find is the link highlighted by Google.

Obviously, this implies that other similarly positioned chains did not consider it a good investment, and declined to partner with PrinterOn. Probably, those chains watched the market for a while, noticed that remote/color printing was not really a differentiator, and thanked their lucky stars that they didn’t sink any money into a losing investment.

Now, the interesting question is, “Why is HGI still offering color printing?” Because it looks like they have been in this business for up to 17 years. If it really were not a market differentiator, I would guess that they would have downgraded to B&W after the first generation of printers went kaput and needed to be replaced. I highly doubt most of their original printers have been operating all this time. That implies that they have been replacing the color printers, along with maintaining this unusual, one-off relationship with PrinterOn.

All I can say to that is: “corporate inertia”. Perhaps this aspect of the business is such a small line item expense that nobody wants to bother tinkering with it. Customers have probably come to expect this unusual amenity, even if they are not a significant majority, so it is easier to just pass the costs on to the other customers, as noted in other answers.

Why do Hilton Garden Inns have color printers for guest use, but more more upscale hotels only seem to offer black white printing?

My colleagues and I had this question for long time. We’re not talking about color printers for staff in staff areas that guests can’t use, or how front desk can print in color for you if you ask, but the printers available in the “business center”.

Most hotels have just a black white printer guests can use freely. But every Hilton Garden Inn (“HGI”) we stayed at has a color printer guests can use freely. Every HGI has a color printer in their business center. we’re bewildered. HGI is upper middle scale, not upscale. I googled “Hilton Garden Inn” color printers and saw this on https://hiltongardeninn3.hilton.com/en/about/work-smart.html

  • Color laser printer and photocopy machine

I don’t know if this website constitutes official policy? Does this mean every hgi must have a color printer for guests to use for free?

HGI belongs to Hilton. I consider other fancier Hilton brands first. We’ve stayed at Conrad hotels, Hilton Hotels & Resorts with the blue Hilton logo on the building, Waldorf Astoria in business hubs, right in downtown core. They had just free b&w printing!

Other Hilton brands like Double Tree, Homewood Suites, and Hampton Inn only have free B&W printing available.

Even hotels more upscale than HGI have just free b&w printing. Many Four Seasons, J.W. Marriott, Ritz Carlton, and St. Regis hotels just have b&w printing.

Seeking SEO expert for adult sites (I offer 50% earnings)

I have been creating/managing adult sites for a few years now as a hobby/second job/test area.

For a few years the work was little and now covid lockdown has destroyed that little work was left, so these sites too have become a good opportunity to work.

There are about 50 websites all between 10 (new sites) and 1000 visits per day.

All the sites are fully customized, handmade, I’m a php-mysql programmer and I’ve written every single line of code, no wordpress, plugins, widgets or similar (I hate them).

The sites are of different types: gallery-TGP, tube site, blog, feed site, search sites, etc.

The sites are good, the test results speak for themselves.

But today this is not enough, need SEO, but SEO sucks to me and I have neither the desire nor the time to do it.

Everyone tells me I need backlinks, I’ve been trying to do link building for a few months, they’ve deleted my links, deleted comments, blocked and deleted accounts in forums and tube sites, etc. etc. etc. I hate SEO and it sucks me.

So I’m looking for someone (expert) who wants to take over the SEO of my sites, not for free, but not for millions.

The current economic situation of my websites is almost tragic, pop-unders earn about $30 a month, and I spend $25 for the server on vultr, the few affiliations pay for domain renewals.

So, the sites work and run on their own, but there is no serious profit.

So we start from scratch, and what I can offer is 50% of everything you can earn with your SEO. If you make websites earn $100, you make $50, if you make websites earn $1,000,000, you make $500,000.
SEMrush

I am looking for a “serious, transparent” and profitable collaboration, I want to know what you do, why you do it, how you do it, on which of my websites you are working on, etc, I want to understand/learn and have at least an idea of what you are doing on my sites, but I don’t want to do it… SEO sucks me.

I need someone to take care of SEO, and what I can offer are my websites and my skills and create tools and applications to simplify your work.

For example some of my sites are “search sites”, doing a search on one of these sites will show the results in all my other sites. The idea when I created them was to index these well and together with them increase the visits of all my other sites, but only with natural indexing it doesn’t work.
But it might be interesting to work on the SEO of these sites and working on one, work and increase the visits of all the others…

I have full access to databases, code, and I know every single line of code on my sites, so I can create any tool that is useful to increase results and simplify your work.

Here you cannot publish links, images or other references to adult sites, so if you are seriously interested, let me know, I will send you the complete list of sites organized by type, with statistics, seniority, domain authority, etc. etc. etc.

We can talk about it in PM or skype, etc, but I prefer to write because I’m Italian and my English sucks… and I often use translators to make sure I understand what you are saying and tell you exactly what I mean…
