Imagine yourself entering a hotel room and finding yourself smiling to a cozy ambiance that feels so welcoming, an environment that you have personally customized for your stay. Nowadays, smart hotel rooms are giving us a glimpse of great possibilities that the travel industry can offer in the future.
Although a few technologies are already available to make traveling more convenient, hotel industries are still looking for ways to improve their services using modern technology. Even small businesses are competing to develop smart hotel rooms that their digital-savvy guests would surely enjoy.
Mobile technology proved to be helpful to the hotel industry and it can’t seem to stop developing. This enabled different properties to create their own smart hotel rooms. Because travelers always have their smartphones with them, hoteliers made sure they impress their guests by making them feel that they are in control.
For example, some hotels install amenities that can be controlled by a smartphone app. Others let their guest make reservations, set the room temperature and light settings, as well as choose a TV channel they want streaming before their arrival by just using their mobile phones. Just recently, a new mobile app that allows travelers to control their hotel doors was launched.
It sure is not easy for hotels to remove all the old items and replace them with more interactive ones. But because luxury is now the new standard, this is an opportunity for hoteliers to become creative and embrace the mobile technology, the way travelers did.
By taking advantage of the unending capabilities of mobile technology, the hotel industry is slowly developing an environment where their guests will feel at home.
