Casual style is no longer a unique selling point for new hotel types. Instead a design, which will merge living and working, is in demand. Thus, the new lifestyle hotels are characterized by generous lobbies, where you can lie on couches and sofas while working via the ultra-fast Wifi internet, ordering drinks and snacks at the kiosk. Due to smartphone automation, previous typical hotel operations as annoying as queuing at the reception desk for check-in or check-out are things of the past. Another technical benefit of the “Hotels 3.0” is the Smart TV screens in the rooms, which will offer personal video libraries via the i.e. Netflix app access.
E-mobility is also a feature of the new hotel types: Electric cars provided by cooperation partners can be recharged outside of the hotel. Guests can simply book these cars via smartphone app. A new hotel concept in Germany, which will be presented this autumn, will provide an E-Smart directly upon arrival at the airport or train station. The guest can drive immediately to a business meeting or directly to the hotels. Hotels will be (new) centres of mobility, also with e-bikes and transport bicycles to borrow.
