The InterContinental hotel group made it into the news twice last weekend – once with a good idea and once with a rather stupid one.
To start with the good one: The InterContinental Berchtesgaden introduced a new gadget called the InterContiButler. It is GPS device that guides you around the picturesque national park of Berchtesgaden.
