Starting this summer, Amazon’s virtual assistant, Alexa will be at your service at all of the hotels under Marriott’s umbrella.
The tech giant has announced that Marriott will be their launch partner in Alexa for Hospitality.
That means key info like checkout times, pool hours, and breakfast hours will be just an “Alexa” away. You’ll also be able to contact housekeeping, make spa appointments, get room service…whatever amenities they have. Alexa will even be customized by every hotel so that it can be used as a smart home feature to control lights and the TV and more.
You'll also be able to access your iHeart Radio app, and listen to Country 1073, WRWD plus some third party apps, and TED Talks. Amazon also plans to expand the service to vacation rental companies, too. And PS? If you try and pack it with those hotel towel and robes you're swiping, they’ll get an alert…so leave it behind!
