Los Angeles, April 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/— A single provider, SONIFI Solutions, met the needs of Mainsail Lodging & Development when they were looking for a technology partner for three new-build hotels that were all scheduled to open within a few months of each other.
In total, there are three distinct hotel brands under Marriott International, each offering a unique guest experience. Because of this, SONIFI was able to meet each hotel’s and its guests’ specific in-room entertainment needs.
Guests at Epicurean Atlanta, Autograph Collection, were looking for a TV platform that would allow them to stream content, watch movies on demand, and access premium programming, but also showcase the hotel’s unique culinary offerings and amenities. SONIFI’s next-generation interactive TV, SORA, and secure streaming solution, STAYCAST, were exactly what Mainsail was looking for to ensure the best guest entertainment experience.
A Tribute Portfolio Hotel, Hotel Forty Five, used the same SONIFI technology for in-room entertainment and promotional opportunities, but the hotel’s branding and personalization of the boutique hotel’s guests demanded a different approach. SONIFI also installed its guest internet network for the best Wi-Fi connections and streaming experiences in the room, all within Marriott’s GPNS brand standards for the Forty Five Hotel.
For the Residence Inn by Marriott Tampa Wesley Chapel, located on the Winegrass Ranch Sports Campus, SONIFI installed Marriott’s GRE and GPNS platforms for TV programming, live streaming, and Wi-Fi networking, which have been ideal for families, travelers, and sports enthusiasts staying at the all-suite hotel.
According to Tom Stoffo, Mainsail’s Corporate Director of Technology, “guests staying at these properties have high expectations, and SONIFI was able to help navigate the nuances and personalization needed to deliver great guest experiences with their technology.” Their products are able to meet guest demands for convenience and reliability while also providing the flexibility our properties need to promote their own content in simple and easy-to-use ways. With SONIFI as my sole point of contact, the deployment process went much more smoothly for me than it would have been otherwise. “
A senior vice president of sales at SONIFI explains, “We love working with management groups like Mainsail, who take great care of and pride in the properties they manage.” “We had a great time working with Mainsail on these three new builds, especially because of the strong relationship we have developed. SONIFI’s portfolio diversity is one of those fun challenges where we get to really customise the products with the properties looking for the best way to show their brand and amenities to guests. Our teams are eagerly anticipating what lies ahead for Mainsail. “
