Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is the big deal about Hotel TVs, Hotel Phones, Hotel Clocks…..?
A: Hotels are unique and hotel guests are unique too. As a rule, domestic or office products are not suited to a hotel. There are many aspects but one is the simple, yet very valuable “Single Day Alarm” on an alarm clock, no guest wants to be woken by the previous guests alarm.
Noise, hotel TVs, Hotel Speakers (including Clocks) have a maximum volume cap so as to reduce the risk of noise complaints.
Security – hotel guests do often like a souvenir, a discreet way to secure items is often wise so small electronics with a security lanyard and TVs with locking bracket are great ways to keep things there they should be.
Multiple pairings to Bluetooth speakers – at home, even with a pack of teenagers, not that many people want to pair to your bluetooth speaker but a hotel is completely different. Most domestic bluetooth speakers have a limit of around 20 unique pairings, ,if you are 21, best of luck.
Easy to Use – Hotel guests do NOT want to read instructions, all items must be esa to use and have the features clearly visible. A TV with 3 remotes and a complicated menu will not improve a guest experience, likewise, an office phone won’t make it easy for a guest to call for Room Service.
