Right: A rendering of Immersion Hotel’s interactive guestroom.

First Runner Up: Immersion Hotel
The team from Kay Lang + Associates took social interaction and customization to a new level with the Immersion Hotel. “At first, we approached the concept with a question: ‘What is the future of the hotel room?’ Immediately, we started to discuss customization, and how the future of hospitality will be about catering to the ‘senses’ of the guest on every level. Technology has come so far that it begs to enter the hotel industry in a way that will enhance the overall guest experience,” explains Kay Lang, founder of her Los Angeles-based firm. Upon entering the hotel, guests are given a choice of connecting with their own smart device or one that is provided to them. Then the customization begins: after choosing how much or how little they would like to participate, guests can check in and order bell service. Once in their room (the smart device opens the door), they can decide what they want their space to look like, picking from an endless selection of décor options (from a rainforest to a thundering sky) by interacting with the OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) canopy, headboard wall, ceiling, and integrated entertainment wall; in the bathroom, there is even programmable aromatherapy—for example if a guest selects “blue skies,” it triggers the fresh scent of a wild flower meadow, and produces images of clouds on the ceiling. As Lang explains, “This customization makes the hotel truly an escape from reality and allows guests to be immersed in the environment of their choosing, creating whatever creature comforts or fantasies they may have.” Yet the interaction doesn’t only happen in the guestroom. As arriving guests walk across the foyer, touch sensors embedded in the floor tiles send signals to digital art screens creating various colors and patterns. The lobby lounge boasts interactive gaming options, a staircase fitted with LED floor lighting that showcases promotional artwork and hotel information, and a “tweet ticker” scrolls above
