Rosen Hotels & Resorts has installed Sonifi Solutions’ in-room entertainment, which includes interactive TV solutions and over-the-top streaming via StayCast, powered by Google Chromecast. The system is offered at the 1,501-guestroom Rosen Shingle Creek, 1,334-guestroom Rosen Centre and the 800-guestroom Rosen Plaza.

Now, through StayCast, guests can stream more than 1,000 apps, from Netflix and Hulu to YouTube and international apps, from their cell phones to their guestroom flatscreen TVs, which avoids the need to disclose password information. 

“This new service is something we know everyone will enjoy,” Leslie Menichini, Rosen VP of sales and marketing,  said in a statement. "For our guests whom we value like family, the future is now.”

Virtual Roundtable

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

Sonifi Solutions also will provide a new group messaging system. This will allow meeting and event planners to send mass messages, photos and video to their entire room block. Additionally, guests can use the new technology to order roomservice and to make housekeeping requests. The system also provides functions such as in-room check-out, which the hotels had previously provided.

In addition to the installation of the Sonifi System, the three convention hotels recently completed upgrades and enhancements. All three hotels feature multimillion-dollar radio-frequency ID locking systems for state-of-the-art security in guestrooms, meeting spaces and ballrooms.
