Scenic 5-star Swiss Alps hotel upgrades guest rooms with 127 Philips MediaSuite TVs as part of grand reopening.
Ahead of its grand reopening, the iconic Grand Hotel Kronenhof – set in one of the world’s most stunning locations – has installed 127 x Philips MediaSuite professional TVs from PPDS inside all 112 rooms, bringing advanced entertainment choice and capabilities.
First opened back in 1848, the Grand Hotel Kronenhof is one of Switzerland’s most iconic and luxurious hotels, carefully balancing modern comfort with holistic wellbeing and outstanding architecture, all set within a natural paradise at the heat of the Swiss Alps.
Part of a major restoration program, reinforcing its commitment to providing unparalleled luxury throughout the hotel, the owners turned to PPDS to bring its guests – which have previously included a number of leading celebrities, such as the late Sir Sean Connery, as well as royal family members – an advanced, connected TV entertainment solution that is befitting of its high-end reputation.
Working with Swisscom and PPDS to deliver a full RF and IP upgrade with hybrid Wi-Fi connectivity across the entire premises, 127 Philips MediaSuite TVs were installed (ranging from 43”- 55”), bringing unrivalled entertainment choice to every guest room, including linear and nonlinear TV and radio channels, integrated Netflix, Chromecast built-in (allowing guest to effortlessly enjoy their own content on the big screen), as well as access to thousands of apps via the Google Play store.
This new entertainment upgrade has also been futureproofed to enable fast content and software updates via the exclusive PPDS CMND platform, allowing new features to be quickly added without additional costs, as well as creating personalised messaging for guests and feedback opportunities via the TV. The TVs can also be upgraded to the latest Android software (when available), adding all the latest features, capabilities, and security patches, ensuring a modern and consistent experience in every room without the added expense.
