Guests staying on the executive floor of the Grand Ambassador Seoul associated with Pullman are now able to directly control various room functions using their own smart devices.
All 25 of the hotel’s rooms on the 16th floor and now IoT (Internet of Things) Smart Rooms and have been outfitted with IoT technology. Guests can scan a QR code on the wall of the room using their own device and from there control the lights, curtains, TV channels, and room temperature from one menu. Do not disturb and make up room notifications can also be set along with ordering amenities such as pillows, towels and shampoo.
Gradually, the Grand Ambassador Seoul aims to add these features to all of its 413 rooms and suites, though a time frame has not yet been announced.
The functionality is part of the hotel’s wider push to integrate IoT technology to the property. Last September Grand Ambassador Seoul introduced it into the lobby and restaurant area so that staff could more easily adjust the lighting depending on the time, season and outside weather.
