Starwood Hotels & Resorts brand W Hotels has decided to install Envision interactive HDTV systems from LodgeNet at its hotels across the US.

LodgeNet has already started the installations, which will continue through the first quarter of 2012 and will upgrade more than 8,000 guest rooms across the US.

The installations will include LodgeNet’s eCompendium Application, which provides guests with hotel and local information on an interactive basis, reducing the hotel’s marketing costs and environmental footprint.

The application also includes the W Happenings Channel, which plays hotel-specific content with daily activities and events, as well as Wake-Up, which turns on the TV to wake guests at the chosen time.

LodgeNet will also install applications such as eCheckout and a web-based portal, LodgeNet PowerPortal, which allows each hotel’s staff to add, delete or update hotel-managed content on its Envision system.
