While ideally situated near San Francisco’s famed Union Square and able to offer a wide range of enticing amenities including many nearby restaurants, cable car, world famous shopping and theaters, Hotel G San Francisco leadership sought out a means to further stand apart from nearby competing properties by providing guests with the ultimate in-room entertainment experiences. This significantly included providing each guest with the means to instantly access virtually any personalized content of their own choosing on guestroom televisions.

After considering several options, the property selected HIS and its BeyondTV GuestCast solution due to providing the latest in content casting functionality along with the company’s expertise in accommodating specific hospitality market needs. With BeyondTV GuestCast, Hotel G San Francisco property leadership was significantly able to discontinue the need for costly premier channel subscriptions while still providing guests with the option to access such content on guestroom televisions using their own personal accounts.
With more guests demonstrating a preference for personal streaming subscriptions versus more traditional in-room television offerings, BeyondTV GuestCast provides guests now staying at Hotel G with the ability to effortlessly cast their own content to guestroom televisions hassle-free from personal computers, iOS or Android-based devices. Compatible with more than 1,000 mobile-based apps, the solution also ensures that Hotel G guests are able to instantly access the ever-increasing number of content streaming services to ensure that viewing preferences can always be catered to on a larger guestroom television screen.


“Hotels always seek out ways to stay competitive using technology but this is particularly true within the San Francisco market with its overall younger guest demographic, where offering an advanced casting solution such as BeyondTV GuestCast can make a notable difference in attracting guests who are accustomed to such services and expect to find them in the guestroom,” said Steven Rizzo, General Manager at Hotel G San Francisco. “BeyondTV GuestCast ensures that we can offer a far wider diversity of viewing options to match any guest preference while at the same time allowing us to save revenue from costly premier channel subscriptions that may or may not offer a lineup of desirable content. While standing out for its ability to deliver on precisely what our niche needs were, HIS further stood apart to us due to the company’s expert knowledge and for providing a positive implementation experience that was both seamless and quick.”
