Mar 25, 2008 (08:03 AM EDT)


CARY, N.C., March 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Beginning this month, consumers in four cities -- Chicago, Denver, Minneapolis and Orlando -- will have no problem finding local businesses that suit their needs, even if they're enjoying a latte at the local coffee house or staying at a downtown hotel.

Today Dex announced that it has partnered with nearly 60 coffee shops, restaurants and hotels throughout these cities to provide customers with fast, direct access to DexKnows.com(TM), Dex's leading nationwide Internet Yellow Pages and online local search site, through the businesses' Wi-Fi login pages. Participating businesses include select DoubleTree(R) Hotels, Wyndham Hotels and Resorts, Hilton, Holiday Inn(R) Hotels & Resorts, Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar and more. Customers who log onto the Web at these locations will be able to click on the DexKnows.com logo and quickly take advantage of all of the features the site has to offer, all of which help city residents and visitors plan their day.

"We're making DexKnows.com available to people on the go throughout these cities," said Jeff Porter, vice president, R.H. Donnelley, owner of the Dex brand. "Now, a person grabbing a quick coffee at the local coffee shop can log onto DexKnows.com and find the closest movie theater, shoe store or other business. Conversely the person traveling to one of these cities can log on from their hotel's homepage and look up the highest rated local restaurants or plan their evening."

DexKnows.com includes detailed information about local businesses. In addition to phone numbers, Web site links and more, the site also features itinerary planning and mapping, online video of businesses, and ratings and reviews that help consumers make informed decisions as to which businesses to choose -- or even rate the business that they're currently staying in or dining at.
