Four Points by Sheraton, Gatwick Airport
08 April 2021 11:15
The Four Points by Sheraton London Gatwick Airport, is the first of the Four Points Sheraton brand to touch down in the UK.
Located just two miles from Gatwick Airport, the newly refurbished site boasts onsite parking, a gastro pub, bar and gym facilities.
Each air conditioned room features a comfortable bed, rainfall shower and a specially designed workspace - perfect for business travellers.
"Airport hotels typically attract one-night-stay guests" said Head of Hospitality Sales, Wayne Bowring "who don't have much in the way of local attractions to visit! With this in mind, a top quality TV entertainment system is a real priority."
Airwave commenced proceedings with the implementation of an IPTV headend and broadcast signal equipment. 104 x Samsung 55ET690U Series SMART hospitality TVs were then wall-mounted on low profile BTech BT8421B brackets.
Otrum's Enterprise Cloud information system was implemented on each TV, featuring a home page and a number of additional pages, including: channel guide, radio, hotel information, Internet TV, bluetooth audio share and a Chromecast interface.
The Chromecast interface allows the guest to use a smart device to cast content (such as Netflix, BBC iPlayer, Amazon Prime etc) onto the guest-room TV.
Recognising that not every guest has access to a smart device, Airwave implemented the cloud-based movie app, Airtime, on each TV. Airtime offers on-demand multi-language blockbuster movie & programming content - a perfect option for that pre-holiday treat!
