InterContinental Barcelona updates its Guest Technologies

Nonius updated the Wi-Fi system to IHG Connect standards and installed our HTNG TechOvation winner Cast solution in all the guest rooms.

Located in Barcelona’s Montjuic district, InterContinental Barcelona is the second brand-new property in Spain established by IHG Hotels & Resorts. After a complete refurbishment of the Crowne Plaza Barcelona, the hotel is ready to exceed expectations of the modern luxury traveller.

The sophisticated facilities include Quirat and Arrel restaurants, Gebre Cocktail bar, an award-winning Spa brand Natura Bissé, 173 Rooftop Terrace with magnificent views over the city, and 273 elegant rooms.

IHG Connect solution

With a long-time partnership with IHG hotels, Nonius is the preferred vendor to offer a reliable Wi-Fi experience and Managed Networks services, following the IHG Connect standards and specifications.

Main benefits:

  • A faster and consistent Internet experience across the property;
  • Higher bandwidth combination with the most advanced cloud-based Wi-Fi technology;
  • Specialized 24/7 NOC in-house technical helpdesk to support the hotel;
  • Auto-recognition for IHG Rewards Club members where guests only need to sign in once to access Wi-Fi at all IHG Connect hotels.

Nonius Cast

Empowering guests by allowing them to choose their favourite TV entertainment is now easy and simple: just connect to the hotel Wi-Fi, scan the QR code, and start casting!

After this flexible pairing, our Cast supports multiple devices and ensures stable connectivity by streaming the preferred content and media of guests on a bigger and higher-quality screen. The guests have now available a wide variety of content from apps including Netflix, Disney+, HBO, YouTube, Spotify, among others. It’s secure for guests like it is at home since all account credentials are automatically cleaned after the check-out.

The Nonius Cast solution is compatible with the existing TVs and the hotel can increase revenue by sharing exclusive promotions on their amenities through the Chromecast Portal during the guest stay!

“The new InterContinental Barcelona brings to Barcelona all the international experience of the brand, based on modern luxury design and service, the combination of local cultural knowledge and international know-how with the continuous commitment to provide luxury hospitality, designed for the high-end traveller. We found Nonius the right partner, aligned with our high-quality brand standards, helping us to increase the guest satisfaction index. Going digital with our services within the hotel with the advice and industry expertise of our Tech partner, Nonius, has been essential to ensure a memorable experience for the most discerning guests.”

Enrique EscofetGeneral Manager at InterContinental Barcelona
