Finding something to do or something you need, with ease, is the idea behind R.H. Donnelley’s (NYSE: RHD) DexKnows.com that launched this month in four cities – Chicago, Denver, Minneapolis and Orlando.

Doubling as an online search site, Dex offers direct access to its nationwide Internet Yellow pages through participating businesses’ Wi-Fi login pages.

Nearly 60 coffee shops, restaurants and hotels within these cities are participating, including: DoubleTree® Hotels, Wyndham Hotels and Resorts, Hilton, and Holiday Inn® Hotels & Resorts. Customers who log onto the Web at these locations will be able to click on the DexKnows.com logo and browse the site to find contact details, Web links, videos and reviews of local businesses. The site also features itinerary planning and mapping as well as a consumer rating system.

“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."
