Matild Palace


        As part of the Luxury Collection Hotel portfolio from Marriott International, Matild Palace is a historical palace intrinsically connected to its locale and boasting a distinctive ambiance representing its Hungarian heritage. Built during the Belle Epoque era in 1902, Matild Palace is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site and is under monumental protection. Today, the Budapest hotel is committed to inspiring guests with its rich history, culture, and epicurean excellence combining luxurious surroundings with authentic experiences.

        the challenge

        The task for Matild Palace was clear: The owners wanted an intuitive, reliable, and flexible solution. Since refurbishments in luxury hotels are done every eight to ten years, the solution also had to remain innovative and relevant for a decade.

        "Crestron technology offered the functionality they were looking for. The scalability was proven during installation when we were asked to include the control of the glass cover of the winter bar."
        Máté Kovács
        General Manager,
        C.E.H. Kft

        the solution

        Matild Palace turned to C.E.H. Kft as an AV integration partner to ensure the project would fulfill the highest demands on sound quality but also blend with the sparkling beauty of this historical building. C.E.H. designed a solution powered by Crestron that controls AV, lighting, shades, and more for their multifunctional spaces, which include a restaurant, bar, winter bar, an outdoor terrace, a cabaret, and a conference area.

        the technology

        Throughout the property, Crestron technology enables the manager to create the perfect scene for guests using background music, lights, and shades, either by using the designated tablet or a Crestron touch screen on the wall. The hospitality area consists of the Matild Café and Cabaret, where cabaret shows and functions take place, and features a historical rising stage controlled by Crestron technology. The Duchess rooftop bar is a place for lounging and cocktail parties and has a unique view of Budapest’s historical center and Spago by Wolfgang Puck, the first of this brand in Europe. The shading and lights at The Duchess, which doubles as the winter garden during the colder seasons, feature integrated control so that the glass walls and ceiling panels can also be managed. “To make it all come into its own, we divided the café into three areas, ranging from background to stage, each with a completely different setup, but the same intuitive Crestron control,” explains Máté Kovács, General Manager at C.E.H. Kft.

        The conference area is another essential part of the hotel with a total of five meeting rooms, the largest one built to handle a capacity of 100 people. As the rooms are booked by different people each time they’re used, it is paramount that the controls are intuitive. That’s why C.E.H. decided to outfit each meeting room with a 10-inch Crestron scheduling panel, making it easier to see where which meeting takes place and when the spaces are booked. A Crestron DigitalMedia™ Switcher accommodates any combination of digital sources, while the boardroom is equipped with a Crestron Flex kit. The other meeting rooms use Crestron AirMedia® wireless presentation and collaboration system to make it easy for every user to connect instantly from any device to any platform.

        "At Matild Palace we have extensively used Crestron technology. The lights, shades, and control solutions enable us to create a seamless guest experience in our public spaces and restaurants."
