  • October 20, 2006
AOL is getting into the hotel business--sort of. The Internet portal has created a co-branded site with Four Points by Sheraton, a budget hotel chain, that will give guests free access to AOL videos, news, music and other content. The new site is being tested at the Sheraton Manhattan Chelsea Hotel in New York before potential rollout. The co-branded site will appear as the Internet welcome page on computers in individual hotel rooms and on courtesy terminals in the lobby.
