Classic Hotels & Resorts has added guest streaming and other interactive television features provided by SONIFI Solutions.

With its collection of luxury, upscale and boutique properties, Classic Hotels & Resorts offers distinctive properties. The selection of SONIFI’s STAY Interactive and STAYCAST solutions are meant to further enhance those qualities.

Guests can already enjoy the upgrades at the Arizona Grand Resort & SpaHotel Carmel and La Playa Carmel. Updates to The Scott Resort & SpaThe Inn at Laguna Beach and Laguna Beach House are in progress and should be completed by the end 2018.

SONIFI’s guest streaming solution, STAYCAST – powered by Google Chromecast – gives travelers who visit Classic Hotels & Resorts the ability to stream their own content to the in-room TV experience. “We recognized that more and more people use non-linear services to watch programming at home,” said Esteban R. Velez, VP of IT for Classic Hotels & Resorts. “Allowing guests to use the in-room TV experience for viewing their usual, favorite content creates the level of comfort and familiarity we want our guests to feel while enjoying their unique lodging experience. Technology and Innovation are the keys to keeping guests feeling at home by staying connected.”

The STAY Interactive system simplifies making customizations for the defined amenities at each property—whether that be renting private cabanas at The Scott or booking tee times at Arizona Grand Resort & Spa. The cloud-based, drag-and-drop property portal provides local access for real-time updates and convenient brand management.
