Westerville, Ohio – June 16, 2015 –Rosen Hotels & Resorts (Rosen Hotels) in Orlando has selected The SmarTV Company, LLC (SmarTV) to provide its guest entertainment and engagement platform at the three Rosen Hotels convention properties. The GuestSmarTV IPTV solution and interactive guest-facing technology will be installed at the 1501-room Rosen Shingle Creek, 1334-room Rosen Centre and 800-room Rosen Plaza to enhance the guest experience.

In addition, the three hotels will benefit from using the guest conference and messaging module to manage group messaging, to provide hotel event information and conference details and to feature hotel offers and services specials.
“Offering premier convention and vacation hotels in a dynamic city like Orlando with 62 million annual visitors, we knew finding a partner for Rosen Hotels & Resorts that had the technology that could grow in concert with our guests’ needs was paramount,” says Tamara Flores, Director of Information Technology for Millennium Technology Group, the technology company subsidiary of Rosen Hotels & Resorts. “SmarTV can provide the best experience and technical solution for our three convention hotels now, while also offering a technology platform that allows for future changes. As new technologies such as over-the-top streaming and mobile-anywhere features are required, this solution creates a formidable long-term advantage for us versus our having to spend the time and money to install additional technology to support future guest or hotel operating requirements.”
