back over 6 years. This latest milestone of over 100 properties is a result of
Guest-Tek's proven ability to provide a consistent level of service to White
Lodging Services and its guests over that time," said Ken Barnes, VP of
Systems, WLS. As the availability, reliability, and performance of the HSIA
service has increased dramatically over the years, WLS has continued to rely
