Staycity Greenwich sits amidst the leafy parks and maritime history of South East London's Greenwich, a short stroll from the Cutty Sark, the Royal observatory, Greenwich train station and London's DLR line.
The building is set across 3-storeys, and contains 68 studio, and one bedroom apartments.
"Think apartment + hotel. That means all the comfort and flexibility of home" - Staycity.
Key to Staycity's product proposition is the provision of a home-from-home experience, and on that basis, Airwave was approached to provide a TV entertainment system to provide exactly that.
Key to this home-from-home TV experience is the provision of OTT content, such as streaming services (Netflix, Amazon Prime etc) and catch-up TV (BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub etc).
This content is provided via hospitality certified Google Chromecast, embedded within an Otrum Mirage guest entertainment platform. Staycity asked Airwave's interactive design team to implement a simple, but intuitive interface, featuring three options:
- Watch TV
- Connect to WiFi
Staycity's guest entertainment platform (due to be rolled out soon at Staycity properties in Birmingham, Liverpool and Edinburgh) was fronted by wall-mounted 43-inch LG662H hospitality TVs, all enjoying the splendour of a new headend.
