I wonder what they mean by “the experience of tomorrow”. I’ve stayed at Kimpton’s Hotel Helix, a futuristic hotel, before and I never quick figured out how to shower in the bedroom without soaking everything else.
The Wall Street Journal called it a hotel for millenials. And their description of the hotels sound very Kimpton-esque:
Visitors, Carlson Rezidor says, will be able order a car to pick them up at the airport, request that the room’s minibar be stocked with certain drinks, order a sandwich to be waiting at the hotel’s 24-hour deli, and arrange for family photos to beam from the television screen when they enter their room. Guests will pay for these additional amenities on an a-la-carte basis.
