This is a new benefit is added value to Hyatt properties. One of the best benefits of Sonifi sounds to me that it “automatically disconnects guests at checkout.” I have forgotten to sign out of my Netflix account on occasion at hotel rooms and I have also traveled with my Apple Tv or Amazon Firestick before. So, I like this benefit. How about you?
