For many years people thought that hotels would never change their standard way of doing things: travelers check in at reception desks, pick up room keys and transport their luggage to their rooms. So boring and old school.
Fortunately, one day the travel industry realized that frequent travelers would really appreciate an evolution and, nowadays, we can say that hotel technology is getting increasingly creative to provide a more seamless guest-friendly experience from check-in to check-out.
Just like the MagicBands of Disney World, a wristband that is used to get into your room, buy food and enter the park, among other things, many hotels are also giving their hosts a smart band to have it all within reach. In this way, people have in the same wearable device a key to the the resort room and a digital wallet that can even be used on vending machines. There’s no doubt that this idea makes it easier for you to spend money. Tui Group, for example, has designed a smartband connected to a room’s lighting and environment controls so that, when you walk out, the lights and air-conditioner turn off, saving on electricity.
