Hershey Entertainment & Resorts recently updated its in-room entertainment and guest internet with Sonifi Solutions. The features of the new system allow the Hotel Hershey and Hershey Lodge, both in Hershey, Pa., to provide modern guest conveniences such as fast guest internet access, onscreen property information, in-room streaming via StayCast powered by Google Chromecast and more.

The Hotel Hershey, originally built during The Great Depression, maintains its historic charm without ignoring the modern and innovative. Guests on the property enjoy everything from playing croquet to Segway tours—and, of course, roasting s’mores or visiting what is affectionately called the “chocolate spa,” The Spa At The Hotel Hershey. Sonifi’s DOCSIS solutions allowed the hotel to use coax cable for both TV and guest internet upgrades eliminating the need for rewiring construction or damaging any of the hotel’s historic ambience.

Hershey Lodge features an indoor pool complex, recreation center, and lots of activities and dining options for families and other guests. The customizable hotel channels make it easy to communicate property amenities, area attraction and shuttle information to Hersheypark, as well as specific event details.
