Olympic Hotel Uses Smartphone To Control Check-In, Room Service & TV
VIPs can use a Galaxy S III smartphone to control basic hotel services.
Samsung’s Galaxy S III is not only the official smartphone of the 2012 Summer Olympic games, but it is also a pretty nifty gadget to have if you happen to be staying in London’s Stratford Holiday Inn.
Guests staying in one of the 40 VIP rooms will receive a Galaxy S III smartphone with a customized Holiday Inn app capable of checking in and out, locking and unlocking doors, controlling the AC, ordering room service, and controlling the room’s TV.
Additionally, the app will be updated regularly with the latest Olympic event news, schedules and information, ensuring that all VIP guests are connected to the games no matter where they are.
The Samsung Galaxy S III was released on May 29th with over 10 million units sold to date.
