News for the Hospitality Executive
Sacramento, Calif., August 31, 2011 – For the past 10 years, PSAV® Presentation Services has been providing audiovisual and event technology services and support to the Hyatt Regency Sacramento, located at 1209 L Street, adjacent to the Sacramento Convention Center and directly across from the State Capitol. Today, PSAV is also serving as the AAA four-diamond rated downtown hotel's sole provider of managed network services propertywide, including the delivery of wired and wireless High Speed Internet Access to its 28,000 square feet of function space and 503 guestrooms.
"Bandwidth is in high demand at all times and at all hours of the day," said Scott VandenBerg, Hyatt Regency Sacramento General Manager. "We experience heavy login usage in the evenings and mornings by guests, and more daytime usage by meeting clients when sold. By enabling PSAV to manage our broadband connectivity in addition to our event technologies, we now have a single point of contact for all things audio/visual and Internet related. Not only does this simplify the meeting planning process for clients, but it enables us to capture additional revenues with PSAV selling broadband packages for events.
"In addition, by authorizing PSAV to manage guestroom broadband, it minimizes guest challenges with logging in the first time," he said. "With a T3 line in place and PSAV as our in-house partner, bandwidth is no longer an issue, and we've barely scratched the surface of reaching broadband capacity."
At the Sacramento Hyatt hotel, all guests receive VIP treatment. Following a top-to-bottom renovation, each of the stylish guestrooms (including Regency Club & Business Plan rooms) feature Hyatt Grand Beds™, iHome stereos with iPod® docking stations, 42-inch flat screen TVs, wireless Internet service, spacious work desk with ergonomic work chair, oversized showers, and deluxe bath products from Portico. The facility sports a 24-hour StayFit™ gym, heated outdoor pool and whirlpool, and jogging trail. Business travelers enjoy the 24 hour self-service business center, Hyatt Fast Board™ PDA and Express Check-in, Concierge services and more. Vines Café for All Seasons and Dawson's restaurant provide great dining and room service options.
All for One and Plenty for All
In order to satisfy each individual or group's request for Internet connectivity, having more vs. less bandwidth obviously is better. What may not be so obvious, however, is knowing how to build a robust wired and wireless infrastructure that meets each diverse customers need for speed. PSAV is the leading supplier of audiovisual and event technology to hotels, associations, producers and meeting planners worldwide.
The company's extensive experience in the hospitality market gives hotel owners and operators a unique understanding of how to construct networks that deliver memorable events for event goers and exceptional stays for overnight guests.
"Guests of the Hyatt Regency Sacramento will find everything they desire and more," said Matt Harvey, PSAV director of event services. "That includes abundant Internet access at high speeds. PSAV combines an unbeatable breadth of technology expertise on staff -- who also happen to provide direct-to-guest services right on site. This enables us to control the availability of bandwidth around the Hyatt Regency Sacramento, whether it's needed by an individual in the guestroom or on a group basis in their ballroom or one of the 12 meeting rooms. Best yet, guests and meeting planners are only charged for what is needed to meet their needs and budgets, and make their stay extraordinary.
"We are delighted to expand on our existing relationship with the Hyatt Regency Sacramento and look forward to expanding our breath of propertywide technologies as well," he said.
