26 Aug Marriott selects Otrum solutions for its first hotel in Serbia, the Courtyard by Marriott Belgrade City Center
The Courtyard by Marriott Belgrade City Center, Marriott International’s first hotel in Serbia, is conveniently situated in the heart of old Belgrade, steps from the Republic Square, National Museum and National Theater. In addition, the hotel is located 17km from Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport and within close proximity to the capital’s new state-of-the art metro system.
All bedrooms are equipped with the latest Smart TVs, running Otrum Enterprise Smart, allowing the hotel to connect with their guests, and the guests to connect with the hotel – what we call Otrum Easy Connect. Otrum Enterprise Smart gives the hotel a managed 2-way communication and marketing platform in the guest room, while also delivering a home from home TV experience, with fully digital TV services.
“Although we have many Otrum Enterprise installations with Ritz Carlton and JW Marriott properties, this is one of 3 Courtyard projects which has recently gone live. Thanks to our set top box free solutions, the commercial model allows Otrum Enterprise to appeal to all hotel categories who wish to connect with their guests.” states Nigel Bateson, SVP Products for Otrum.
