Project Spotlight: The rise of technology in bathrooms – Hotel Designs

by Orlando 0 Comments

It’s fair to say our daily lives are in the midst of an ongoing ‘digital revolution’. So many day-to-day aspects of our lives have now been digitised — no more so than in our homes where technology plays a considerable role in how we do simple, everyday tasks. So it figures, we expect the same if we’re staying at a hotel when travelling — essentially a ‘home away from home’.

 

This has definitely begun in a whole host of areas ranging from check-in to temperature control. And one such area that is benefiting from the rise of technology is the bathroom. And these innovations aren’t just making life easier and more convenient, but can now offer a personalized, luxurious touch as well.

I have to believe this is just a display of what that toilet looks like, I would not choose this open design for the toilet in this part of the room, it’s not private at all. What do you think? Leave a comment below.

US hotel firm Starwood strikes historic Cuba deal – BBC News

US hotel firm Starwood strikes historic Cuba deal – BBC News

free-vector-starwood-hotels_077191_starwood-hotels US hotel company Starwood has become the first American firm to agree a deal with the Cuban authorities since the revolution of 1959.

Starwood will renovate and run three hotels in the Cuban capital, Havana.

A spokesman for the company said they would be making a “multimillion-dollar investment to bring the hotels up to our standards”.

The news comes on the eve of President Obama’s visit to the island – the first by a US president in almost 90 years.

The BBC’s Will Grant, in Havana, says the deal is a welcome reminder of how far things have come between the two nations since they decided to normalize ties.

A new DIY economy in Cuba

With this visit, and such economic steps, the two sides hope the new ties will soon be irreversible, our correspondent adds.

Tourism in Cuba is at an all-time high, including a sharp rise in the number of US visitors, especially since travel restrictions were eased by President Obama.

Starwood is currently the target of potentially the biggest takeover of an American company by a Chinese business.

Anbang Insurance, which already owns New York’s Waldorf Astoria, has made a $13bn bid for Starwood, trumping an offer by America’s Marriott International. Marriott_Logo.svg

Anbang’s founder, chairman and chief executive Wu Xiaohui is married to Zhuo Ran, grand-daughter of Deng Xiaoping, the country’s former leader who is credited with engineering China’s economic reform.

President Obama arrives in Cuba for a historic visit marking a new chapter in US-Cuban relations, dogged until recently by decades of Cold War animosity.
