With guests increasingly expecting the ability to receive instant service while being able to personalize their hotel stay in a way that meets their unique preferences, Hotel Carmichael leadership sought out an advanced in-room solution that could provide each guest with instant and hassle-free access to hotel services and information. As guests become overwhelmingly accustomed to personalized content viewing options such as streaming services, the property also desired a means to allow guests to seamlessly access their own content subscriptions via guestroom television. Lastly, with the industry and guests increasingly concerned over the risk of exposure to viruses by touching potentially contaminated surfaces, Hotel Carmichael further sought out an alternative means for guests to interact with and control in-room amenities without having to come into direct physical contact.

HIS and it’s cutting-edge solutions were selected by Hotel Carmichael after having established itself as a leading and trusted provider of connectivity technology with Coury Hospitality, the hotel management company responsible for overseeing the newly constructed property. By opting to implement BeyondTV along with its integration with Amazon’s Alexa and Volara, a leader in voice-based solutions for the hospitality industry, the property will be capable of providing guests with an instant ability to locate hotel information or make hassle-free service requests using only simple voice commands and without having to come into direct contact with personnel. Further catering to growing demands for instant convenience and a desire to reduce unnecessary exposure to surfaces, BeyondTV’s voice abilities also extend to providing complete control over guestroom television functions without the need for a remote control.



“In today’s hotel environment, guests are increasingly demanding the ability to have services readily available the moment they are desired and with a minimal need for physical contact, and BeyondTV with its virtual assistant capabilities will allow us to deliver on this expectation completely once our property opens its doors,” said Jamie Hopwood, General Manager at Hotel Carmichael. “With hotel guests also now accustomed to the full personalization of their content viewing options due to having multiple streaming accounts, BeyondTV with its casting abilities also ensures that guests can continue to remain in control over how their in-room entertainment experience unfolds. This is increasingly becoming a priority for hotels as guests expect to see the same sort of functionality that they now commonly find at home be mirrored within the guestroom.”
