Tropicana Las Vegas Upgrades Guest Rooms with Advanced Cable TV and Internet Solutions from Cox Business/Hospitality Network
LAS VEGAS – Cox Business / Hospitality Network, a full-service, facilities-based provider of advanced voice, video and data solutions as well as a leading source of in-room video and data technology services to the hotel-gaming industry, is deploying upgraded technologies that will deliver free-to-guest cable television, video-on-demand services and wireless Internet connectivity to 1,658 guest rooms as part of Tropicana Las Vegas’ transformation.
Mike Bolognini, vice president of Cox Business and Hospitality Network-Las Vegas notes, “The guest room technologies we’re deploying at the Tropicana will be on par with many of the other major properties found along Las Vegas Boulevard. And when it comes to accessing the Internet, the wireless infrastructure we’re building here will now allow users to get to their virtual destination from their room, pool or public area as fast as from anywhere else.”
”At Tropicana Las Vegas, we’re changing everything,” said Tropicana Las Vegas’ Vice President of Hotel Operations, Arik Knowles. “Bringing Cox Business / Hospitality Network to Tropicana helps to enhance not only our new, best-in-class rooms but also our guests’ experience.”
The video on demand storage system at Tropicana Las Vegas will be upgraded from a tape-based to a digital-based system. This higher-level technology offers much more depth of content than the tape-based systems in addition to offering a more user friendly guest interface and is more visually appealing and intuitive than the previous system: features that allow a more pleasing user experience.
The free-to-guest video offerings include 36 of the most popular news, sports and information cable television channels in standard and high definition as well as major local television networks in addition to six channels of commercial free digital music from Music Choice. Hollywood blockbuster and adult features as well as pay per view programming are also available.
