Country Inn & Suites Merrillville Signs Contract to Install Roomlinx' In-Room Media & Entertainment Solution

Limited-Service Hotel Starting With 10 Rooms and Plans for More to Follow

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - June 23, 2008) - The Country Inn & Suites, Merrillville, Ind., has entered into a 5-year agreement with Roomlinx Inc. (PINKSHEETS: RMLX), to provide Roomlinx' new In-Room Media, Entertainment & Business solution in 10 select guestrooms. Guests will have instant access to hotel services, movies, international and U.S. television programming, music, local news / weather / business / sports updates, shopping, business productivity tools, concierge assistance, and PC / Web-based games via the in-room television.

"The Roomlinx system is a true one-stop-shop guest service tool," said Sanjay Patel, property owner. "Everything a business or leisure traveler could need in the guestroom is provided directly from Roomlinx -- Web pages will link our guests to concierge services, local dining and entertainment spots, news, weather and more. Guests don't ever have to leave the room -- or bring their laptops while traveling."

Patel, who owns multiple properties in the Midwest, said based on the anticipated success of Roomlinx in Merrillville, he believes he will soon bring the solution to more properties.

"Roomlinx gives the Country Inn & Suites Merrillville the ability to generate revenues through e-commerce relationships, local and national advertising partnerships, business services and video on demand," he said. "As excited as Sanjay is to roll out our system, we are equally as excited to partner with a limited-service brand such as Country Inn & Suites by Carlson. Initial feedback from our beta hotel leads us to believe that Roomlinx will be installed property-wide in a very short time -- and in more hotels owned by Sanjay Patel."

The Contract term is for five years and will generate a minimum $150 per room per month.

"This contract validates our ability to penetrate the untapped 'Limited Service' hotel market," said Roomlinx CEO Mike Wasik. "We have also proven that we can generate over $100 per room per month in revenue through our solution. This is a significant increase from the $3 per room per month we currently generate through our High Speed Internet Services."

Installation is expected to be complete by mid-July.
