Bluetooth won’t connect, the shades won’t open, and the lights are flickering. The result is an ambiance that is more like a hospital than that of hospitality. This is partly because Hotel Technology has changed drastically in the past several years, and so has the process and procurement. What has historically been bought through FF&E is becoming more and more complicated by the day. This is due to the following hotel tech trends:
- Guests are expecting to be able to use their own devices to access their own content
- LED lighting is still inconsistent and requires coordination between lighting design, fixture selection and dimming controls.
- Shading systems are often sourced through the purchasing agent and not coordinated with controls.
