[VoiceOps] Hotel IP phones

Glen & Ernesto,
I’ve got sort of the same style phone, (Mine’s a Panasonic KX-TGP500) and the Vtech has a “Maximum number of call handling: 2”.  I’d have to imagine that to be a deal breaker for a phone selection.  Each of the above mentioned phone bases support 6 handsets.
The Panasonic can support 3 calls so that brings it from 1/3 to ½ of your phones, but I’d still be surprised if that isn’t considered  a deal breaker.  I’d be interested to hear if it isn’t a deal breaker for this particular service.  I love my Panasonic phones.  They take standard AAA batteries that are easy to source/replace when necessary.  Their hands free mode is easy to use and has nice volume and a good microphone for its size.  The display is large and easy to read.  My 80+ year old parents use them all the time.
Good Luck!

Since I haven't seen it mentioned here yet... you may want to take a look at the VTech cordless solution, specifically the VSP600 - https://businessphones.vtech.com/pd/2546/VSP600-ErisTerminal-SIP-DECT-Base-Station-and-Cordless-Handset
This one can have 6 phones per base, and can each be named room number, accordingly. Easy provisioning, and remote control.
In our tests this phone performs far better than the other cordless options around, including Grandstream.
Good luck,

Good day everyone, 
I was told that VoiceOps.org was a great place to begin discussions and conversations with other carriers about Voice Over IP subjects, and hope I am not breaking any rules for this forum.
I am being tasked with suggesting several models of IP phones for a small hotel in Texas in which we are providing it with their Internet Service. Each provider suggested one the following wireless IP wireless models:
* Yealink - W56P 
* SNOM - M65 
* Grandstream - DP720
Then Polycom suggested going with a touchscreen phone with web browsing capabilities, for room service convenience. (VVX 500)
I am a little lost as to what are the trending choices in IP phones for hotels and would like to hear your though on the matter and ideas around the use and setup of wireless IP phones or touchscreen IP phones.

Best regards,
