AccorHotels Group to install Samsung Smart hospitality technology

AccorHotels Group will roll out Samsung Electronics’ Smart hospitality display technology across AccorHotels' properties spanning 92 countries. As the preferred display provider for AccorHotels, Samsung's UHD displays will be available in guest rooms and common areas, including lobbies, bars and restaurants. This technology upgrade will provide AccorHotels' on-site staff with all-in-one tools and extended flexibility to deliver a tailored and visually compelling guest experience.

This partnership also enables AccorHotels' properties, including the Sofitel, Pullman, Novotel, Mercure and ibis global brands, among others, to have access to an array of intuitive and premium hotel solutions. Among them is Samsung's Lynk hospitality management technology, which creates a more convenient and pleasurable guest experience through home automation. Through the Lynk hospitality management platform, guests and staff receive greater control over different aspects of hotel and in-room environments, ranging from room lighting and energy use to personal services and workflow management.

Additionally, the partnership will facilitate the implementation of a cloud-based wireless printing solution as well as digital content including video-on-demand (VOD) and streaming platforms. The preferred supplier agreement further extends AccorHotels and Samsung's partnership to introduce modern and technologically-connected hotel concepts across the world. The two companies announced plans to design and build an experimental hotel in Seoul, South Korea, featuring state of the art technology and multi-point connectivity for a more interactive guest experience.
