The hotel room of the future may look very much like those at The Peninsula Hong Kong. After running an innovation workshop, in 2013 the 300-room luxury hotel introduced completely wired rooms in which every selection, from the TV to the drapes to the temperature, is controlled via tablet computer. (Several of the devices are distributed throughout suites for easy access.) The technology will be introduced at The Peninsula Chicago this fall. In addition, room designers have taken steps to relieve small pains by custom-fitting every drawer, cabinet and closet and labeling each with its contents, so there’s no more wondering where the blow dryer is hiding. Starwood Hotels and Resorts, which previously announced Botlr, a prototype robotic butler, has developed concept rooms across its portfolio of business-travel-friendly properties. Starwood’s Aloft Hotels plans to allow guests to control room temperature, lighting, alarms and even coffee-making via their own mobile phones. Element is planning smart lighting that automatically illuminates a path to the bathroom when guests get up in the middle of the night, as well as lighting options that will enable jet-lagged travelers to adjust their circadian rhythms. Four Points Hotels will have touchscreen-enabled “smart mirrors” that display news, weather reports and sports scores while guests primp in the morning. Personalization may also lead to custom minibars, as well as other guestroom spaces. French clothing company Pimkie is selling women’s wear through the closets of Antwerp’s Banks Hotel. Guests who decide to take an article of clothing (or the entire wardrobe) can pay for it during checkout. Get the full story at Entrepreneur
