The Fiesta Americana Viaducto Aeropuerto Hotel in Mexico City recently opened its doors with the full suite of Enseo’s smart hotel room technology. 
 
Owned by FibraHotel and managed by Posadas Hotels, Fiesta Americana had a specific goal in mind: provide the guestroom of the future in their hotels to create a unique, connected in-room experience for its guests while also conserving energy usage. To enable this experience, Fibra turned to one of the fastest-growing private technology companies in the United States, Enseo. Enseo worked with long-term sister company and technology provider, Catapult Tech, for a comprehensive Internet of Things device-management platform and guest entertainment system, as well as guest remote applications.
 
When guests check into a room at the Fiesta Americana, they can use the traditional room remote control or their own smartphone to control the television, window shades, room lighting and the temperature with ease through Enseo’s Fido comprehensive IoT product. Fido turns any hotel room into a smart, energy efficient, connected room and elevates guest comfort and satisfaction.
 
Enseo’s versatile platform also provides the in-room entertainment system, including access to apps such as Netflix and YouTube and a highly customized user interface developed with Fiesta Americana to welcome guests into the hotel’s crafted experience.
 
Located inside the Via 515 mixed use project in Mexico City on Viaducto, Fiesta Americana Viaducto Aeropuerto is a modern full-service hotel near Mexico City's Benito Juarez International Airport. The hotel, with 260 full-service rooms, has modern public areas, meeting rooms, conference and event space with a terrace and features the Los Canarios restaurant and a bar.
 
“We are thrilled to be working with Enseo and hope that this is the first of many projects to come,” FibraHotel CEO Simón Galante said in a statement. “We have a strong desire to become the hospitality leaders in technology in Mexico. FibraHotel is in a technological transformation, and Fiesta Americana Viaducto is the best example of it.”
 
EnseoConnect allows guests to use their own mobile devices on any network to control their TV, room lights, window shades, thermostats and other connected devices in their room. This unified remote approach does not require guests to download an app, maintain a login or touch the guestroom remote at all. Guests do not even have to join the hotel Wi-Fi network. Instead, guests simply pair with the TV for instant access and control of their entire connected in-room experience.
