7 High Tech Luxury Hotels

High Tech Hotels to look out for

If luxury is about the little things and making life easier, than a technologically advanced luxury hotel is the logical evolution of that notion. From mobile check-ins to in-room iPads, here are seven properties for people who love all the digital bells and whistles.

High Tech Hotels to look out for

Opus Hotel, Vancouver Last year, the 96-room hotel in Vancouver’s Yaletown neighborhood ditched standard hotel room phones in favor of iPhones. That isn’t the only Apple product they’ve got in their quiver, all suites also offer an in-room iPad. Like a virtual concierge, and one that moves with you, they’re pre-loaded with links, apps and GPS so guests have a guide throughout the city.

High Tech Hotels to look out for

Aria Resort & Casino, City Center, Las Vegas The rooms at this Sin City property might not win you a hand of poker, but they do all have 7-inch control touch screens to operate the lights and curtains, and even call housekeeping. Room access is also quite Minority Report-ish, a RFID card senses when you are near your room and unlocks the door, so there’s no fumbling for keys after a late night and a lot of Long Islands.

High Tech Hotels to look out for

Andaz Wall Street, New York The more civilized way to check-in at Andaz’s Wall Street hotel? Take a seat, order a cocktail and confirm stay via one of their mobile tablets.

High Tech Hotels to look out for

The Plaza Hotel, New York The Plaza may be historic, but that doesn’t mean it’s out of date. Forget to print your boarding passes? Your temporary iPad can do that for you, and control the rest of your room’s features.

High Tech Hotels to look out for

The Upper House, Hong Kong Check-in is wireless too at The Upper House, and “do not disturb” signs and guest directory binders have gone the way of the Dodo bird—instead, motion sensors in the rooms let housekeeping know you’re home and an in-room iPod Touch is loaded with all the info guests need, plus the power to order you room service. The tech love also extends beyond the building to their house cars, Lexus RX450H hybrid models, which are outfitted with free unlimited broadband access.

High Tech Hotels to look out for

La Maison Champs Élysées, Paris If you loathe having to tote along a computer on trips, this posh, impossibly cool Parisian hotel offers some respite: rooms come with big-screen iMacs, which blend in with the White Cover couture-style room Martin Margiela designed. There is also no charge for Wi-Fi, so all your devices can roam the web freely. Same goes for movies, so you don’t have to feel guilty about staying in for a marathon when a 24-hour downpour hits.

High Tech Hotels to look out for

Mio Buenos Aires Don’t bother researching all the trendy Buenos Aires bars until you get here—the Wi-Fi is complimentary. iPod docking stations, 32-inch televisions, DVD players and 80 HD cable channels all come standard, and while it might not be high-tech in the typical sense, you might like to know that each room is equipped with a wine tap that pipes in their house wine. That too is included, so let it flow freely.
