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.

The latest Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) Business Travel Recovery Poll revealed that business travel is surging forward and international travel is returning alongside the challenges of rising fuel prices, inflation, supply chain disruption, and the war in Ukraine. In addition, corporate travel policies are undergoing a revamp, and a large majority of employees indicate they are willing to travel for business. 

 

The hospitality and meetings and events industries are known for their generosity. Even after a couple of tough years courtesy of the COVID-19 pandemic, helping others has remained a priority. Here are a few examples from around the country. 

 

On May 4, Knowland, a provider of meetings and events intelligence data, released its monthly report for April 2022. The data showed a significant increase in meetings activity, with a 323% increase over April 2021, including a 3.7% recovery of events from March to April 2022.

Additional information included:

•     In April 2022, the average number of attendees per event was 118, compared to 63 in April 2021 and 74 in April 2019.
