When it comes to free in-room amenities, the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills is offering more than extra towels and tiny shampoo bottles. As of this week, all 285 rooms and suites have Apple Inc.'s iPad 2 tablet computers. But the tablets are not freebies. Guests can use the high-tech gadgets to order room service, call for the valet to have a car ready, make dinner reservations and call for housekeeping, among other services.

When it comes to free in-room amenities, the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills is offering more than extra towels and tiny shampoo bottles. As of this week, all 285 rooms and suites have Apple Inc.'s iPad 2 tablet computers.

But the tablets are not freebies. Guests can use the high-tech gadgets to order room service, call for the valet to have a car ready, make dinner reservations and call for housekeeping, among other services.

You can use the iPad to do all this free of charge, but if you want to use it to connect to the Internet in the room, there is a fee.

The hotel said it is the first Four Seasons in the world to put iPad 2s in the rooms. What's to keep you from walking off with it? If it's missing after you check out, the hotel will charge you $800.
