“An amazing resort, one of the best in the Florida Keys,” says a TripAdvisor review. “Everything you’d want in an upscale Keys getaway…with high-tech gadgetry that will have you feeling like you’re living in an episode of The Jetsons,” says Fodor’s Travel.
The first new resort to open in the Keys in over 20 years, Marriott’s Playa Largo offers a pristine white sand beach, beautiful accommodations, outstanding restaurants, and sweeping views of Florida Bay. The service, reviewers say, is of a caliber that harks back to a more gentle age, and the place has an unhurried, luxurious feeling you might not expect from a brand new property only 60 miles from Miami.
Yet that location makes the Playa Largo ideal for a conference, wedding, business meeting, or party.
To make these events truly special, Think Simple integrated state-of-the-art presentation and entertainment systems in Playa Largo’s 40,000 square-foot banquet and conference center. Those include:
- Room combining/separating sound and video systems in the ballroom
- Superb, network-based video distribution using Crestron DigitalMedia
- Audio distribution using QSC’s Q-SYS platform, and
- Very simple-to-use Crestron controls.
Think Simple also designed and installed background music and paging in the restaurants, spa, lobbies and other public areas, indoors and out – even underwater speakers in the swimming pool.
To create these systems, we worked closely with the property owner, Shaner Hotels, and the developer, Prime Hospitality Group. These companies have teamed up to build, own and manage a number of exceptional resorts.
The reaction from guests has been striking. Of those leaving reviews on TripAdvisor, two thirds give the Playa Largo five out of five stars.
