The Hilton Hotel brand announced a project called “Connected Rooms”. This is a first of its kind high-tech room that allows guests to control every aspect of their room from their mobile device. Currently this project is in a testing phase but it is live in one Hilton hotel and will begin to be implemented in many other Hilton hotels in the United States in 2018.
Connected Room Experience
Guests who stay at “Connected Room” properties will soon be able to use the Hilton Honors app to manage most of the things that they would manually do in their room such as, turning on the TV, adjusting the temperature, controlling the lights and opening and closing their shades. Guests will also be able to personalize their room with technology that loads the most popular streaming media such as Hulu, Netflix and more on their TV’s. Plans for the future also include the ability for guests to be able to use voice commands to control the functions in their room. Guests will even have the ability to upload their own artwork to digital picture frames on the walls in their room.
This is definitely an upgrade from simply being able to unlock your hotel door from your phone! The future is definitely looking bright/
