After a long day of traveling, many guests just want to sit back, relax, and turn on the TV. Equipping your property with the right resort and hotel entertainment systems is essential in the modern hospitality industry. Luckily, Foodbuy Hospitality’s category experts have advice on finding the right TV and entertainment systems for any hotel, resort, or leisure space.


Read on for 3 considerations you’ll want to take into account when replacing your hotel entertainment systems.


1. Understand the Preferences of Your Guests

A 2022 Hotel Business Reports study found that “three out of four hotel guests say a guestroom

TV is “essential” or “very important” to their hotel experience.” You want to make sure you’re choosing the right type of hotel entertainment system for your guests. That may mean choosing between basic and smart TVs, as well as choosing between QLED and HD options.

This choice comes down to the type of operation you manage. If your property goes to market as a more affordable option, you can stick with the basics. If you’re advertising a luxury experience – you’ll likely want to opt for a system with all the bells and whistles.


2. Make a Plan for Programming

A hotel entertainment system can’t provide much for guests without channels. That’s why you’ll want to make sure you have a plan for TV packages. Foodbuy Hospitality works with DirectTV to provide a variety of channels for guests to choose from. You can even bundle your DirectTV plan to include multiple rooms or your lobby and restaurant entertainment systems.


3. Account for Removal and Installation Services


How do you plan to handle the removal and disposal of old TVs? You’ll want to make sure you work with professionals for both removal and installation of your new resort or hotel entertainment systems.

Professional technicians can replace multiple systems more efficiently and without risking damage to your walls. Some TV programs – including Foodbuy Hospitality’s ODP Business Solutions Program – include these services. These can make the replacement process easier, limiting disruption to operations.
