MCCALL, Idaho, Feb. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The historic Shore Lodge has been a Pacific Northwest vacation hub for generations of families since 1948. After receiving a number of upgrades over the years, the now 65-year-old resort and spa is starting 2014 with a fresh new look. The 77 room hotel has undergone a full-property room renovation, adding even more comfort and style to the iconic mountain-lake retreat.
The renovation sought to blend the guestrooms with the rest of the lodge by incorporating the same rich, natural materials found in the surrounding forest and expansive mountains for which McCall has become well known. The design team drew additional inspiration from the region's luxurious mountain homes and the authentic spirit of the central Idaho town, creating an environment that is warm and inviting with a connection to the great outdoors. Deep purples, grays and browns accent woods and natural textures, seamlessly blending into the panoramic mountain-lake views that await outside the rooms' patios or balcony doors. These much sought-after views have become even grander as the metal and wood railings have been replaced with an all glass partition. Other additions to the rooms include rustic sliding barn doors to separate the living and sleeping quarters as well as finishes such as brushed copper, deep green marble and carpeting featuring a tree-inspired print to complete the natural, yet sophisticated, ambience.
Other essential updates center on convenience and comfort. New headboards, for example, have built-in reading lights, while both the nightstands and end tables are equipped with power outlets so getting down on the floor to plug in phones and small electronics is no longer necessary. 46" flat screen HD TVs supplement the 32" units already in each suite and feature programming by DirecTV's state-of-the-art "Residential Experience" hospitality solution. New mattresses and upgraded linens also add additional luxury.
System upgrades included an overhaul of the in-room HVAC as new heating and cooling units with INNCOM by Honeywell's integrated energy management system were installed in each room. Innovative Saflok RFID door locks were also added with integrations to both the in-room environmental system as well as the hotel's property management system, offering added security and peace of mind for guests.
"The room renovation has been an exciting, but delicate, process as we sought to add modern luxuries without compromising the historic charm that our guests know and love," said President and General Manager Dan Scott. "The final product is simply outstanding. We captured the natural spirit of McCall and blended it beautifully with the world-class amenities that continue to make Shore Lodge a much sought-after destination."
The Shore Lodge room renovation, which was completed by Boise-based McAlvain Construction, Inc., adds to the list of amenity upgrades at the resort and neighboring residential real estate community, Whitetail Club, in recent years. Committed to providing top-tier luxury in a charming, historic destination, the ownership opened The Cove, a full-service boutique spa in 2011. The following year, a number of upgrades were implemented at Whitetail Club including the addition of a community park, cafe and convenience store, as well as restaurant and amenity updates to the main clubhouse of the 1,300 acre private golf club and luxury residential community.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
