ADVANCEMENTS IN TECHNOLOGY BRING ALL THE COMFORTS OF HOME TO HOTELS
Innovative technology trends surged through the hotel market in 2016. And many of these digital advances were built on the premise of giving hotel guests a comparable— if not superior—technological experience to the one that they get at home.
Hoteliers are doing everything they can to keep up with cutting-edge technology trends and keep guests returning to their properties.
The largest technology trend in 2016, according to Trevor Dowswell, CTO of Hotel Internet Services, was the proliferation of the internet of things (IoT), or making household items network-dependent. Even something as “unplugged” as drapes can now be programmed to open or close depending on the time of day with the press of a button.
