PSAV is the company.  I just installed about 20 Cisco WiFi radios at the
Doubletree (a Hilton prop) at Sea-Tac.  These covered only the convention
space, conf rooms, ball rooms, whatnot.  It would seem that the hotel is
running their own system in the other public areas such as check-in, coffee
shops and bars.

Mostly they were well placed, often in the same spot as the existing
radios.  But I'd never throw a geek-con at that system.
