Westin was looking for a solution that would allow them to control 716 loads distributed in the Lobby, Restaurants, Spa, Ballrooms, Meeting Rooms and Presidential Suite. They had been provided with a specification from a dominant competitor. The Vantage specification needed to provide additional functionality to overcome this strong competition.
The Vantage system offers the ability to control all types of lighting technologies, while also providing simplified or complex control and integration. For example, in the lobby area the system was only required to offer automatic and automated control over the lighting, while in the new Gallery area lighting control, full AV integration and mechanical integration were required. Vantage gave the client the varying levels of control they needed without having to employ a separate control system. This really simplified things for the client, who only had a single system to operate..
The hotel management team rolled out a new hotel management system to optimize the quality of the guest experience. In combination with the Vantage system this enables automation of room amenities such as lighting and curtains and allows related relevant information to be passed on to the staff. The InterContinental Group chose the Vantage InFusion system on account of its performance and stability. The team also was enthusiastic about the elegant style and high-quality finishing of the keypads. In each of the 43 luxury suites there is a compact equipment compartment, concealed from the guests, that houses the necessary dimmers and relays. This keeps the cable lengths short, and it allows maintenance staff to perform their tasks without blocking the corridor.
