Rocket Fiber Welcomes the Shinola Hotel
Rocket Fiber welcomes neighbor and partner, the Shinola Hotel, as the New Year commences and rooms are opened up to guests. The 129-room boutique hotel will serve as a landmark in Detroit’s Downtown, exemplifying the style—a sense of history and simplicity—that the brand has come to exhibit.
Shinola has partnered with Rocket Fiber and KODE Labs to bring hotel guests ultra-fast upload and download speeds on the fastest and most reliable gigabit internet. Rocket Fiber managed the initial design and installation of the internet solutions, and maintains support of the hotel network, including the Wi-Fi system and enhanced cellular service throughout the building.

Where Shinola has always seen itself as a lifestyle brand, the company has clearly sought out perfecting the details throughout. The hotel’s “living room” space that is open to the public and intended for collaboration is complemented by multiple dining spaces and adorned by art and books designed for spurring creativity.
And for the sentimental types that want to take memories home with them, Shinola allows guests the opportunity to purchase goods from the rooms; whether that is an indigo dyed terrycloth robe hanging in a clean-lined closet or Shinola Cola chilling in the minibar.
Using Rocket Fiber’s fiber network, KODE Labs integrated all physical building systems, networking and management tools into a single platform, making the Shinola Hotel one of the most high tech and innovative hotels in the country.
