The hotel chain partnered with Samsung and Legrand to explore new concepts

Marriott has teamed up with Samsung and Legrand to launch an Internet of Things hotel room, with the aim of inspiring the ultimate hotel experience of the future. The IoT Guestroom Lab, powered by Marriott's Innovation Lab at the company's corporate headquarters, explores concepts with the potential to elevate the guest experience, create more efficient hotel room design and construction, and contribute to Marriott's global sustainability efforts and goals. The smart hotel room incorporates multiple responsive IoT systems, devices and applications to communicate with each other to serve guests and optimize hotel operations.

“We know that our guests expect to personalize almost everything in their lives, and their hotel experience should be no different. By teaming with best-in-class partners, we are leveraging mobile and voice-enabled technology to give our guests the ability to set up the room to best meets their needs—whether that is creating the ultimate relaxation environment or one that enables productivity for business travelers,” Stephanie Linnartz, Global Chief Commercial Officer at Marriott International, said in a press release.

The IoT Guestroom Lab features intuitive lighting and voice-activated room controls. The room's tech enables a user to ask a virtual assistant for a morning wake-up alarm, start a yoga routine on a full-length mirror, request additional housekeeping services or start the shower at their desired temperature, all by voice or app.

Following a three-month IoT Guestroom Lab, the companies will analyze feedback to continue innovating with IoT technology. Consumers will begin to see elements of the tech in hotel rooms within the next five years.
