Self-driving vehicles and chatbots might
have seemed too far-fetched in 2010 but look at how fast technology has
developed all around us from that point in time. Today, in 2017, we are
ushering in Tesla self-driving vehicles, cool robot concierges, and many more
avant-garde techs that were considered a part of the fiction even only 5 years
Even Amazon is delivering their packages
via drones now to reduce the transit time in the best possible manner. So you
see technology is nothing but a revolution now; a revolution for the good. Right, now in this article, we’ll discuss
the future trends of technology in the hotels and hospitality industry. Are they
really keeping up with the blinding pace of innovation? Let’s see.
1. Robot butlers
Irona (the robot maid from the cartoon Richie Rich)
Remember her? Irona, the robot maid of the
popular Richie Rich cartoon. If you had been a 90s kid, you definitely would.
Who knows? Maybe we can have something similar in the hotel industry now, and
this time for real.
Robot butlers or concierges can be
pre-programmed with special skills, information, and languages to improve the
entire hospitality experience for the guests. You would be able to make your
guests feel more at home as a result of this intricate piece of technology;
something that can be considered an impressive upside, in itself.
Extensive language skills of this
technology can also curb the entire barrier of languages which plagues almost
every vacation spot in the world. If this doesn’t count as a benefit, what
so you know…
concierges aren’t really a part of the fiction anymore. They have already
become a part of the reality. The following video can be your reference.
2. 3D design and printing
Did you forget something at home? Don’t
worry. The 3D printing technology can come into your rescue. 3D printers, these days, can generate a
variety of items which are inclusive of the likes of toiletries, clothing and
even computers in real time. It might look too avant-garde to be true but trust
us; it is a fact.
Next generation hotels can seriously use
this technology to their benefit. Customers will be able to 3D print their
clothes or basic toiletries from their room themselves. Thus, “forgetting
things” will cease to be a problem anymore. Convenience you wanted; convenience, you’ll
3. Ultimate fraud prevention:
Confirming with DNA
DNA confirmation (along with biometrics)
will be used to make online hotel booking ,payments and real-time check-ins
safer in comparison to the way it was before. This is the ultimate fraud prevention
technology, and we can predict (with conviction) that most hotels would welcome
it with open arms.
4. No sleepless nights
Sleepless nights are a common issue in an
entirely new lodging environment. But this will be a thing of the past, once
the hotels start adopting advanced neurotechnologies for
DIY (do-it-yourself) brain programming purposes.
With the help of advanced
neurotechnologies, guests will be able to program their dreams exactly the way
they want them to be. They will be able to relax, learn or enjoy at will. If
this is not a benefit, we seriously don’t know what is.
5. Fully sustainable
Hotels will be able to provide a fully
sustainable hospitality experience to their guests using geothermal and solar
energy, coupled with various other non-toxic products to produce carbon-neutral
footprints for good.
Thus, we can predict that hotels will
become more eco-friendly and more sustainable in the upcoming years; something
that can benefit the entire humanity, on the whole.
few more possibilities…
- Customized interiors that can
change at will; thanks to the wonders of nanotechnology.
- Personalized spas to cater to
the needs of individual guests.
- High-tech hotel transportations
involving self-driving cars and all.
- Custom-designed meals.
- Immersive themed hotels and
So that sums up everything that we wanted
to tell you through this article. Hope you really had a good and enlightening
