The Waldorf Astoria Hotel Shanghai also installed the connectivity panel in its six meeting rooms to streamline presentation capabilities.
“As one of most vibrant hotels in the Shanghai area, we’re thrilled the Waldorf Astoria recognizes connectivity panels as a must‐have amenity to include in its suites and towers,” said J. Glynn Gross, CEO of Communication Integrators, Inc. and the manufacturer of guestLINK™. “Technology is a key component to enhancing guest’s experience and it’s fantastic to have the likes of the Waldorf Astoria embracing the power of guestLINK™.”
