Interactive Entertainment have been selected by Elad Properties owners of New York’s landmark Plaza
Hotel, and by operator Fairmont Hotels to provide Guest-Tek’s OneView
Media platform.The platform will provide the Plaza Hotel with free-to-guest
Internet protocol television with high-definition
programming, and HD video-on-demand entertainment services.
The Plaza Hotel will be opening soon after a $400 million lobby to roof
renovation, including the restoration of its defining landmark public
spaces such as The Palm Court, Oak Bar and Oak Room. The Plaza also
includes private residences and an elegant multi-level retail collection.
Each of the 282 hotel rooms and suites can receive 60 channels of
high-definition along with a large library of high-definition
video-on-demand movies. Guests can use AMX touch-screen control panels to
control their entertainment system, room lighting and temperature, and to
order theater tickets, room service or restaurant reservations.
The guest experience at The Plaza will be seamless, a hallmark of
Fairmont Hotels. All guest facing screens on the televisions, phones, and
AMX panels will provide the guest with harmonized, Fairmont branded, easy
to navigate menus.
“As part of the Plaza experience, we wanted to deliver a
state-of-the-art entertainment system for our guests,” said Miki Naftali,
President and CEO of Elad Properties. “The Guest-Tek system provides a
stunning high-definition experience second to none in the world.”
“The ability to shape every aspect of the guest experience was critical
to us for the reopening of The Plaza. We wanted to be able to define each
component of the system to match the unrivalled service our guests receive
at every touch point throughout the hotel. Guest-Tek was the only clear
choice for us to be able to achieve our goals at The Plaza,” said Shane
Krige, General Manager of The Plaza Hotel.
“We are of course extremely proud to be a part of this historic
project. We are always ecstatic to be able to meet the entertainment
standards set by so demanding a hotel as The Plaza,” said Arnon Levy, CEO
of Guest-Tek. “Where hoteliers are passionate about every component of the
guest experience, we find a very strong fit with our ability to provide a
robust and flexible solution to meet their goals.”
