In the steadily expanding hospitality industry, the guest experience is everything. As guest preferences change and competition increases among major brands, continued growth hinges on exceeding expectations with every stay and driving brand loyalty. Carrier is equipped to help hotel owners and operators meet these challenges and drive growth while improving energy efficiency and reducing operational costs.
The LEED Gold® Shanghai IFC consists of two towers that are approximately 250 meters tall, housing a hotel, shopping mall and residences. Carrier was selected to retrofit the building with new chillers and optimization systems in order to minimize energy consumption.
Since implementation, the plant energy consumption has been reduced 27%, resulting in annual savings equivalent to approximately US$1.6 million and the elimination of 11,200 tons of greenhouse gases.
The old Midland Hotel at St. Pancras Station in London was reborn as the five-star luxury St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel London after finding its rightful place on the English Heritage list. Marioff was selected to help the landmark implement an effective fire safety system with minimal structural impact.
Thanks to the narrow tubing of Marioff’s HI-FOG fire suppression system, existing spaces could be used to run the tubing into each individual room, and the system was fed by a water tank and pump unit installed in the basement, away from view.
The Wilshire Grand Center is one of the tallest buildings west of the Mississippi River, standing 1,099 feet (335 meters) tall. The mixed-use building features office space, a hotel and sky deck on the 73rd floor – along with a number of solutions from Carrier.
The iconic tower employs Automated Logic's WebCTRL building automation system to enable full control over HVAC systems and integration of a state-of-the-art hotel room control system, while the Edwards EST3 platform integrates more than 3,500 smoke detectors to support emergency systems monitoring.
The Taj Palace Hotel is a 403-room property in New Delhi, India. When the time came to replace the hotel’s original chiller plant, which consisted of six water-cooled screw chiller units, Carrier was there to help.
The consulting team at Carrier recommended and installed one Carrier 520-ton 23XRV chiller and Carrier’s chiller plant optimization controls. In the first five months alone, plant room efficiency increased 12% at a building level and 25% at a plant room level, providing savings in excess of 500,000 kWh. The hotel also reported a noticeable improvement in guest satisfaction as it relates to comfort.
