HITEC 2016 is here! You couldn’t ask for a better spot for the largest hospitality technology show of the year than New Orleans. We’re looking forward to the week of innovation, fun, and connecting with friends, new and old!
Finally, a bar you will want your employees to work in! Kimpton’s Eventi Hotel has implemented the “Business Bar” at their Chelsea, New York location. In exchange for drinks or Apple Genius’, this bar supplies guests with a number of gadgets for them to borrow during their stay. The best part? There’s no “open-gadget law” to speak of. You can wander all over the hotel with your borrowed laptop, tablet, Kindle, or GoPro without feeling shame from scornful eyes. Surf the web, print your boarding pass via wireless printing, or catch up on Netflix in your room. The possibilities are endless with this guest-pleasing amenity.
With the rise of hospitality technology, comes the rise of guest technology demands. Mobile check-in, mobile room keys, and fast Wi-Fi are just the tip of the iceberg. Hospitality Technology reported the top IT-driven steps to meet the needs of travelers. Here’s what you need to know to satisfy your guests:
“We should never get to the stage where we replace human interaction. Technology should enable and make processes that have taken too much effort become seamless, or connect us globally to make us better service providers.”
