Your Wi-Fi Is Hot! Better Get a Cold Drink out of the Minibar
June 26, 2017 1:26pm
Most minibar installations today are cutting the cables and going wireless.
Minibars have officially become unplugged. It’s about time! Many minibar installations today are cutting the cables and going wireless. Hotels are happy to have the flexibility to install minibars anywhere in the guestroom, without being restricted to the traditional armoire. This is one of the newest trends in guestroom design – put the minibar in the entryway, snacks on the desk and spa tray in the bathroom. “Having all these in-room retail devices operating wirelessly creates a nice sense of space and access to cold drinks, snacks and sundry items”, says Walt Strasser of Rockville, MD based Minibar Systems.
SmartCube, the world’s leading automated minibar and all of the various SmartTray snack displays are available wireless to meet the demands of hotel designers and operators. “In addition to the various sizes and available finishes of SmartCube, Minibar Systems assists our client hotels to implement best practices menus, operations and technology to guarantee a successful in room retail operation”, says Strasser.
For more information on SmartCube automated minibars and our wireless SmartTray technology be sure to visit us at HITEC in Toronto in booth # 135 June 26-29.
