The technology, provided by Roomlinx Inc., welcomes guests with a personalized greeting and mood-setting music. It also gives the guest access to hotel services, local information, social media sites, room service orders, housekeeping requests and more.
“Imagine a world where you can use your hotel room television to place your room service order, book a local tour, stream a movie from your Netflix account and download a document to be printed at the front desk,” said Pete Sears, senior vice-president of North America operations for Hyatt Hotels and Resorts.
Roomlinx has already been installed in 1,800 guestrooms in Hyatt Regency New Orleans, Andaz 5th Avenue in New York, and Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center. Over the next two years, the technology will be installed in 60,000 guestrooms across Hyatt North America properties.
No news yet as to whether the new technology will be available in Hyatt hotels in Canada.
