Downtown Berlin Marriott Hotel Fit for Guests of the Future

1,000Mbs of High Speed Internet, Convenient Mobile Check-In, and a Flexible 4K LED Video Wall to Address the Needs of Both Business and Leisure Travelers

BERLIN, GERMANY -- (Marketwired) -- 07/17/14 -- The Berlin Marriott Hotel is now the most modern hotel in the capital. Offering the latest in leading-edge technology, guests of the Berlin hotel at Potsdamer Platz now have the option to easily check-in or out on their mobile devices, communicate in real-time with event planners via the new free app "Red Coat Direct," and experience faster internet service. The flexible 4K LED diagonal video wall stretches up to 4.19 meters and promises guests unlimited fun in the lobby. "With our innovations, we are well prepared for modern travelers who have high demands for technology savvy hotels and for those who work a lot on their smartphones, laptops, or tablets," explains Hansjoerg Schneider, General Manager of the Berlin Marriott Hotel.

The convenient mobile check-in and check-out services at the Berlin Marriott Hotel will spare guests long wait times. At 4pm, the day before arrival, guests will receive a push notification on their smartphone or any Apple or Android device, to notify them when check-in is available. Upon arrival, the fully coded key can be conveniently picked up at the express counter, saving guests' time. On the day of departure, the app informs guests via another push notification that they may check out on their mobile devices. The invoice will then be sent via email. All Marriott Rewards members can experience this new service with a new free app.

For even faster surfing, the Berlin Marriott Hotel now offers a broadband Internet connection with 1,000Mbs. It allows for larger downloads and it will not slow down in speed -- even with the simultaneous use of many guests. "We have seen our guests' growing need for a fast and powerful Internet and responded immediately," explains Schneider on the new offer. "Our guests work a lot with their mobile device. Thus, a fast Internet is of course indispensable," Schneider said. The new Internet connection is also used for communication within the Berlin hotel. Conference guests can now easier connect to their event planners by using the free conference app, Red Coat Direct. They can send requests to adapt their event in real time without leaving the meeting rooms of this forward-thinking Berlin hotel.

Furthermore, in the lobby, -- the 'Great Room' of the hotel -- innovations await guests. Four flexible HD 75-inch Samsung TVs deliver a top TV experience. Pushed together, the TVs provide a large screen of 152 inches -- the ideal screen for corporate presentations and videos. Public viewing and TV broadcasts are also available in 16x9 formats on three screens combined. To offer its guests this unique entertainment experience, the Berlin Marriott Hotel has brought in the support from the Cologne-based companies TASCAN System and atmosphere media. Both are responsible for the professional content production, project planning, subsequent implementation, installation of the screens, and the atmosphere4k system. The Berlin Marriott Hotel presents the world's first 4K Ultra High Resolution entertainment platform with music and movies. The selection includes live music shows, films of fascinating landscapes, and natural wonders as well as graphic animations -- all specially produced by the atmosphere4k system. The easy-to-use 4K multi-channel technology allows for a synchronous play on four separate video streams -- all four HD screens are from Samsung.

"Our new offerings in the technical field strengthen our position as one of the most innovative and most modern hotels in Berlin," says Schneider. The Berlin Marriott Hotel just completed last year's extensive renovations as part of Marriott's global campaign "Travel Brilliantly". The focus of the new campaign is the traveler of the future -- people that blend work and leisure together, and which particularly value style, quality and communication technology. Equipped with the latest technology and located in the heart of Berlin right at Potsdamer Platz, close to Brandenburg Gate and Gendarmenmarkt, the Berlin Marriott Hotel is ideally positioned for these brilliant master blenders.

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
