Put Control in the Hands of Your Guests
According to the 2015 Hotels.com Amenities Survey, free Wi-Fi is the number one factor in choosing a hotel for 25 percent of leisure travelers and 49 percent of business travelers. Other amenities important to guests include free breakfast and parking, quiet rooms, and proximity to mass transit and shops. More and more hotels are becoming known as beacons of the latest technology offerings including fancy extras like room automation, free smartphone loans, and Apple TV. Below we’ve compiled a list of some of CytexOne’s favorite high-tech hotel perks. Read on to learn more about hospitality automation solutions for your Miami, Florida hotel property.
High-tech Perk: Touch screens connected to room automation
Sleek in-wall or portable touch screens allow guests to enjoy total control of the lights, shades, television and thermostat from anywhere in the room. Such products deliver a dramatic difference and can enhance the overall guest experience. These solutions seamlessly integrate with third-party management systems and applications, including locks, card swipes, mini-bars, shades and more. Controllers also provide behind-the-scenes management of all intelligent devices in the room.

High-tech Perk: Smart thermostats and energy efficient solutions
With wireless thermostats hotel staff can effortlessly control the temperature based on occupancy and check-in status. Sensors located within each guest room detect occupancy and turn off lights to reduce energy waste. With a one-touch “Green” button, guests can easily opt-in to a hotel’s earth-friendly program.
High-tech Perk: iPads provide total control of different hotel spaces
iPads located in various spaces including exercise rooms, business center, and event rooms provide guests total control regardless of where they are in the hotel or what activity they are engaged in. When hosting a meeting business travelers can easily control the lights, thermostat, and video conferencing equipment using an iPad.
High-tech Perk: One-touch “Do Not Disturb” button
Guests can set an electronic do not disturb “marquee” adding a sense of privacy to their stay with no disruptions. The marquee also transmits information back to management and housekeeping. With the touch of a button, staff is directed clearly and efficiently. And guests quickly and precisely get what they need.
High-tech Perk: Mobile phones become room keys
Hotel key cards may go the way of the typewriter in favor of smartphones that have become the remote control for life. To open the hotel door, guests simply hold their phone up to the door lock and wait for a click. These high quality, reliable, and stylish electronic lock solutions appeal to the high-end hotel sector and its guests. And enable hotels to offer their guests the highly desired front desk bypass solution and a “no wait in line” guarantee.
High-tech Perk: HD screens provide insider information
High-definition screens are becoming bigger and flashier in the hopes of drawing guests out of their rooms and into the lobbies to learn more about the property and surrounding neighborhoods. The premise is to provide travelers something they can’t get on their own smart devices: restaurant and local attractions tips and recommendations.
