Las Vegas, USA – Marriot International partners with Samsung and Legrand to introduce the world’s smartest hotel room at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018.
As technology continues to evolve, the way we think and feel about the things around us are changing. We live in a world where we want everything to be personalized – our phones, our cars, our clothes. So, why not our hotel rooms, too?
To answer this demand, Marriott’s Innovation Lab at their headquarters in Maryland created the IoT Guestroom Lab. It allows multiple responsive IoT (Internet of Things) systems, devices, and applications to communicate with each other to better serve guests and optimize the room’s operations. The futuristic room explores new concepts that have major potential to reinvent the customers’ experience.
It delivers a more efficient hotel room design and construction, and at the same time, it contributes to Marriott International’s global sustainability efforts and goals.
“By teaming with best-in-class partners, we are leveraging mobile and voice-enabled technology to give our guests the ability to set up the room to best meet their needs…” said Stephanie Linnartz, global chief commercial officer, Marriott International.
Marriot International continues to innovate the global experience across its 30 brands by developing a more intuitive system. For example, the IoT Guestroom Lab provides virtual assistance that may be used for a morning alarm, to start a yoga routine, or to turn on the shower at the desired temperature – all done by voice or app.
“At Samsung, we aspire to make life easier and better for our consumers, whether they’re at home or their home away from home,” said James Stansberry, senior vice president and general manager of ARTIK IoT, Samsung Electronics.
Ken Freeman, senior vice president of demand creation, Legrand said: “Legrand is partnering with Marriott to improve the guest experience in a cost-effective and intuitive manner.”
Marriott’s goal is to redefine the hotel experience wherein guests would have a seamless, transparent, and flexible end-to-end solutions that require minimal equipment. Customers are promised an integrated experience with access to their personal data, as well as accessible voice and mobile-optimized controls.
Marriott says that consumers will begin to see elements of this technology in hotel rooms within the next five years.
See you in the future!
