The Aloft New Orleans Downtown has announced the launch of RoomCast, powered by Chromecast. The streaming system will allow guests to cast content from their devices to their television, all in the comfort and privacy of their own guest room.

RoomCast gives each guest room a wireless personal area network with a password and streaming device. When guests enter their room, they can join their own secure network. Guests will see a cast button on all cast-enabled programs on all iOS and Android devices. RoomCast allows guest to use their favorite apps with ease. No extra downloads or personal information is necessary for use. Additionally, after each guest the password will be reset for the next guest.

The hotel is located in the central business district in New Orleans and only steps away from the French Quarter and Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Aloft offers many modern and tech-savvy amenities and updated, flexible meeting space.

Sitting at the corner of Chartres Street and St. Louis Street, the Napoleon House exudes and exhibits French history in a way that “suspends you in time,” says Executive Chef Chris Montero. The historic building’s first occupant was New Orleans Mayor Nicholas Girod from 1812 to 1815, notably offering refuge to Napoleon Bonaparte, from whom the building gets its name, during his exile. Though he never arrived, the name stuck.
