ADVANCEMENTS IN TECHNOLOGY BRING ALL THE COMFORTS OF HOME TO HOTELS

Innovative technology trends surged through the hotel market in 2016. And many of these digital advances were built on the premise of giving hotel guests a comparable— if not superior—technological experience to the one that they get at home.
Hoteliers are doing everything they can to keep up with cutting-edge technology trends and keep guests returning to their properties.

The largest technology trend in 2016, according to Trevor Dowswell, CTO of Hotel Internet Services, was the proliferation of the internet of things (IoT), or making household items network-dependent. Even something as “unplugged” as drapes can now be programmed to open or close depending on the time of day with the press of a button.

Florida’s Canada House Resort Banishes Internet Connectivity Issues with Hotel Internet Services’ Wi-Fi Solution

HU2_logo

 

 

logo2April 11, 2016 – Hotel Internet Services (HIS), a full-service provider of Internet services and solutions for the hospitality industry, has been credited with completely revamping the speed and quality of guest Wi-Fi at Canada House, a timeshare resort in Pompano Beach, Fla.

Due to the use of an outdated network and obsolete equipment, the property frequently suffered from common troubleshooting issues such as poor connection and reception to many of its rooms. Since implementing this new Wi-Fi system from HIS, the timeshare has experienced not only the total elimination of guest complaints, but a marked surge of unsolicited praise regarding the high quality of its Internet capabilities.

Since the main structure of the resort is built with thick concrete walls, many rooms at Canada House previously received weak Wi-Fi signals, while some received none at all. As a result, Canada House sought out an updated solution that would allow it to cost-effectively cater to guests bringing multiple devices that required more robust Wi-Fi access points to connect efficiently. With that in mind, the primary motivation for the Internet project was the desire to improve guest satisfaction, knowing that a majority of today’s guests consider functioning Internet to be as critical as running water, and that they take that into consideration when making a W-Bldg-4reservation decision. To fully remedy Canada House’s issues, HIS implemented its Wi-Fi service with a Zebra VSDL solution using the resort’s phone lines, allowing guests to finally enjoy a seamless Internet streaming experience in all rooms, as well as the lobby and swimming pool area.
