At the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel, we understand the importance of staying connected. Whether you're planning a smaller group presentation or an international broadcast with thousands of attendees, our meeting spaces are equipped with a wide array of technology services with knowledgeable technicians staffed on site to assist with your data, voice and audio visual needs.
Internet Service Provider Capabilities
Our property is equipped with a 200 megabit/second circuit from our Internet Service Provider through Layer 3 switching technology on site with enough capacity to scale up bandwidth to an additional 800 megabit/seconds through logical provisioning on our trunk back to the Local Exchange Carrier's Metro Optical Ethernet core. For special bandwidth requirements above and beyond, our downtown location provides the option to provision as high as 10 gigabit/sec connections with advanced notice and additional coordination through our Local Exchange Carrier, as well as the addition of switching equipment to the hotel's demarcation point. Individual T1 and ISDN connections can be provisioned at any time for applications such as radio broadcasting and corporate point to point wide area networks. For high definition video broadcasting requirements, our Plaza Ballroom and Plaza Exhibit spaces are outfitted with dedicated single mode fiber optic cabling and we are aligned our Local Exchange Carrier's Video Broadcasting Services for convenient deployment of your broadcast.
Meeting Room Network Cabling Infrastructure
All Meeting Room spaces across the entire property can be networked with each other via our extensive multi-mode fiber optic cabling backbone and individual Category 5 copper runs to each room. The Meeting Room network infrastructure has flexibility with additional fiber and copper runs available throughout the entire meeting space should your group wish to bypass the hotel's meeting room network to set up a separate local area network.
Meeting Room Wireless
Wireless Internet access is accomplished through our strategically placed high performance 802.11n wireless arrays, which are specifically engineered for large conference environments where hundreds of wireless users need to connect to the Internet in one concentrated area or throughout the entire meeting space. Each array is outfitted with up to 16 individual access point radios integrated into a high gain directional antenna system providing events with solid wireless coverage, bandwidth and reliability.
The Sheraton Denver Downtown has the largest deployment of digitally interactive signage from Denver based Four Winds Interactive. Our public spaces, such as lobbies and common areas, contain 17 40" and 32" LCD touch screen signs. In addition to our public spaces, each of our meeting rooms is outfitted with a 15" LCD touch screen. Our signs display client meeting event time and location information, which is pulled real-time from our Sales and Catering event management system. Each event has an adjacent "Map it" button which allows clients to see a dotted line "way finding" map from their current location to their meeting destination. We are currently in the process of developing a mobile application which will allow groups to view their meeting schedules on their smart phone!
Along with event information, our interactive signage also displays hotel amenity information, such as restaurant menus. Guest conveniences, such as real-time Denver International Airport flight information, Microsoft Virtual Maps and breaking news are also available on all of our reader boards.
