Future Hotels In The News
An article courtesy of Digital Trends explores how Marriott is their guest experience into the 21st century. It’s all thanks to the IoT Guestroom Lab, which is exploring concepts to “elevate the guest experience, create more efficient hotel room design and construction, and contribute to Marriott’s global sustainability efforts and goals.” The Lab is said to be integrating multiple IoT systems, devices, and applications to speak with one another, and better address the needs of guests and hotel operations staff.
An article courtesy of Digital Trends shares a new concept that Hilton is currently experimenting with. Soon, your Hilton room could be a “smart room,” capable of automatically adjusting the temperature to your predetermined liking, playing your favorite television shows without you asking, and chilling your beverage of choice in the refrigerator. Such a room depends upon a computer system that links a guest’s preferences to the various appliances found in a standard hotel suite, and it could be rolling out in the next year or so.
