What will the hotel room of the future look like?
Ecole hôteliere de Lausanne, which has been promoting blue-sky thinking on innovation and the future of hospitality, staged a contest last year and then produced an impressive video based on the two winning concepts. If EHL’s vision on YouTube is anything to go by, we’ll check into our room in 2033 and then be able to select – courtesy of virtual reality or VR – our preferred location, whether it’s, say, Lake Geneva or perhaps the Seychelles.
Nowadays, we have wi-fi, a telephone and probably a flat-screen TV. But as hotel guests become increasingly tech-savvy, they are likely to expect to have the latest technology on hand.
