The Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile, previously called Hotel Concorde la Fayette, is one of the most symbolic buildings in Paris Located within the Palais des Congres, this 4 star hotel contains 950 rooms and suites. It also has 34 modular meeting rooms capable of accommodating up to 4,000 people and spans over a 2,900 square metre area.
Whilst managing a large site with multiple suites, maintaining a high level of cleanliness within each washroom can be a challenge. The reputation of a hotel can often rest on the appearance of its washroom facilities.
To preserve the cleanliness of the washrooms, the hotel installed several WHISPER XL hand dryers, also known as the Mitsubishi Jet Towel. The hotel chose these drain tank-equipped hand dryers in order to avoid water spilling on to the ﬂoor, to eliminate paper towels and to save on running costs compared to traditional electric hand dryers.
With the WHISPER XL, hands are dried in seconds in an economic and hygienic way. Using a powerful air jet to blow water oﬀ hands, the WHISPER XL is more eﬃcient than traditional electric hand dryers that rely on evaporation. The unit is activated using touchless hand sensors to maintain a high level of hygiene.
