ABOUT THE PROJECT
The historic Britannia Hotel in Trondheim, Norway, is welcoming guests once again after a three-year, top-to-bottom renovation. Built in the late 1880s, the Britannia is the city’s oldest hotel and has served as a primary hospitality hub for almost 150 years. The five-star hotel is a member of the prestigious Leading Hotels of the World, features six restaurants and bars, a spa and fitness center, conference facilities, and 257 guest rooms. The renovation transformed the hotel to meet modern expectations while maintaining the historic character of the building. Early on in the project, hotel management knew that updated audio throughout the hotel would be critical to creating an exceptional experience for guests. They needed an audio solution that would create a welcoming and comfortable experience and also integrate seamlessly, supporting the hotel’s unique aesthetic and historic charm.
THE BOSE PROFESSIONAL SOLUTION
Bose Professional partner Kinly provided the Britannia with a comprehensive audio solution that supports the overall guest journey and creates a unique identity throughout the hotel. The installation included a wide variety of Bose loudspeakers selected both for their sound quality and ability to blend into the hotel’s various spaces. The Britannia’s new sound system includes Bose FreeSpace loudspeakers, EdgeMax in-ceiling loudspeakers, the Panaray MSA12X digital beam-steering loudspeaker, and RoomMatch Utility loudspeakers.
