A collection of splendidly authentic hotels in America’s favorite city have recently announced a new, and very special amenity for guests.

The selection of this technology by the management of the Whitney Hotel and Hotel Le Marais of the New Orleans Hotel Collection reflects SONIFI’s status as the only solution that offers an enterprise-grade, fully integrated and secure guest experience that leverages the ever-growing ecosystem of more than 1,000 apps that Google has developed around Chromecast. This unique feature enables a guest to quickly and easily cast over-the-top content from their own iOS or Android mobile devices directly to the big screen, without the hassle of using a traditional remote control.
“SoniCast gives guests the ability to personalize their entertainment experience by enabling them to watch what they want, when they want. To date, over 130 unique apps have been cast, which further exemplifies the need to provide more personalized content options. SONIFI is the only provider with the full gamut of these options – from world class FTG programming to still-in-theater movies to SoniCast,” said Nick Clessuras, SONIFI’s Senior VP of Sales. “We are pleased that we’re able to provide all of these services to the fine hotels of the New Orleans Hotel Collection and their guests.”
“We’re excited to be on the forefront of this guest offering with two hotels within the New Orleans Hotel Collection installed with SoniCast,” said Craig Hulford, General Manager. “Giving guests access to this latest feature furthers our goal of enhancing the guest experience with distinctive amenities and services.”
