The selection of Sonifi’s Stay Interactive and Staycast solutions are meant to further enhance those qualities.

Guests can enjoy the upgrades at the Arizona Grand Resort and Spa, Hotel Carmel and La Playa Carmel. Updates to The Scott Resort and Spa, The Inn at Laguna Beach and Laguna Beach House are in progress and should be completed by the end 2018.

Sonifi’s guest streaming solution, Staycast – powered by Google Chromecast – gives the diverse travelers who visit Classic Hotels and Resorts the ability to stream their own content to the in-room TV experience.

“We recognized that more and more people use non-linear services to watch programming at home,” VP of IT for Classic Hotels Esteban Velez said in a  statement. “Allowing guests to use the in-room TV experience for viewing their usual, favorite content creates the level of comfort and familiarity we want our guests to feel while enjoying their unique lodging experience. Technology and innovation are the keys to keeping guests feeling at home by staying connected.”

The Stay interactive system simplifies making customizations for the defined amenities at each property—whether that be renting private cabanas at The Scott or booking tee times at Arizona Grand Resort and Spa.
