Best Practices for Improving Guest Technology Experience
The minute they step into their guest room, kick back in
the lounge, or work up a sweat in the gym, hotel guests are
seeking access to power and connectivity. Their technology
expectations are high and are only increasing. To keep up,
project stakeholders are challenged with delivering solutions
that address guest connectivity needs with progressive
technology that leaves a distinct impression.
Working with our partners in the hospitality design and
management sector, Legrand has developed advanced
solutions that reflect individual brand identity through
beautiful integrated designs, elevating guest experience
to drive revenue and increase profit margin.
VOICES FROM THE FIELD
INTERSECTING STAKEHOLDER PRIORITIES IN HOSPITALITY PROJECTS
“In a hospitality setting, technology
should be accessible for every guest
and help him or her easily achieve the
end goal - whether it’s turning a light
on/off or powering up a device before
a critical presentation. Put succinctly,
when it comes to technology, simple is
good, and quality is critical.”
JOE ERICKSON, COOPER RILEY
“Plugging in and charging is done with
great frequency and yet it has remained
a mostly mundane interaction. In order
to excite guests during this ‘routine’
procedure, there needs to be a special
‘ooh’ factor that can create a uniquely
memorable experience. If a guest has
a positive experience that stems from
well-thought design features, they’ll be
more likely to remember your property
and return.”

Switches, Outlets & Dimmers for Varied Budgets

During the specification process, decision makers should
actively engage with the outlets, wall plates and switches
to fully understand the differences in experience between
commodity-grade options and elevated offerings. Once these
products are approached from the guest perspective, it is
clear that quality of design, construction and functionality
should not be sacrificed to save costs in the short term.
When specifying for hospitality projects, products that create
delightful interactions and experiences are worthwhile for
their long-term returns.

QUALITY MATTERS
It’s important to specify
high quality receptacles.
Inexpensive options often
wear down over time,
resulting in plugs that
can slide and fall out.

Build Power into Furniture in Guest Rooms
Traditionally, the only electrical products found on headboards
in guest rooms have been sconce or reading lights. However,
outlets, switching, dimming and USB charging are now being
introduced at the headboard, offering a convenient place
for guests to charge their phones and tablets. Some guest
rooms are even being equipped with a master switch at the
headboard, allowing the guest to shut off all non-essential
power from the bedside as they retire for the night.
Delivering charging or lighting control in the headboard,
without compromising elegant designs, can be made possible
by retrofitting existing casegoods or through adorne Furniture
Power Centers. It’s critical to comply with national and
local electrical codes, regardless of the installation method
employed, so all projects should involve perspective from
local code experts.
