Bose Professional has announced collaboration efforts with Hoist Group who selected Bose Professional as its preferred audio solutions manufacturer. Hoist Group is part of Planet, a global technology leader delivering the ultimate customer experience to the hospitality industry worldwide. With its commitment to the growing technology needs of the hospitality market, it was a natural step to standardise with Bose for a market-differentiating audio experience, regardless of the hotel style and the variety of amenities offered.
The recent opening of the Fairmont Windsor Park Hotel located just outside London celebrates one of the newest luxury, five-star hotels in Europe. Featuring spacious rooms, unmatched spa facilities, enticing restaurants and more, every aspect was designed to put the wellness of each guest at the heart of the experience. Located next to Great Windsor Park amidst 40 acres of green space and a tranquil lake, the hotel represents the ultimate escape from the city, within easy reach of Heathrow Airport and Central London.
“The quality of sound is so important, it’s a key part of our guest experience,” shares Surinder Arora, CEO and chairman of Arora Group. “I’ve been using Bose equipment for many, many years. I’ve always been so impressed with the quality. Their equipment is the best, and we like to have the best at Fairmont Windsor Park.”
Hoist Group specified and brought to life the audio experience with Bose technology throughout Fairmont Windsor Park Hotel. With 26 zones incorporating more than 160 audio devices throughout the property, and another 250 loudspeakers in the guest rooms, it is an intricate and robust example of how hotels can utilise sounds to create and enhance the complete guest experience.
“We knew that an expansive and in-depth audio solution from Bose would uphold the integrity of this luxury experience,” says Phil Campbell, Senior Vice President for Sales and Business Development for Hoist UK. “Bose quality and manufacturer support offered as a preferred pro partner enables us to guarantee the best and most reliable audio solution for all our clients.”
A combination of EdgeMax EM90 and EM180 loudspeakers with a variety of FreeSpace FS and DesignMax loudspeakers, driven by a selection of PowerMatch and PowerShare power amplifiers, ensured an efficient placement of equipment to deliver the ideal audio in each of the unique spaces. EdgeMax technology (which features proprietary Bose PhaseGuide technology with high-frequency compression drivers) creates a new type of audio experience. Engineered for high-quality performance in both background music and voice announcements, the FreeSpace FS and DesignMax loudspeakers easily integrate into a variety of interior aesthetics while delivering the ideal combination of performance and design.
Arora adds, “It’s about giving our guests that special experience, beyond the quality of the furnishings and the variety of spaces. The experience our guests will enjoy, in one word, is magical.”
