From smart hotel rooms to eco-friendly technology, hotels need to keep up with the latest tech trends to stay on top of the competition. Here are a few of the innovations that have us excited for 2018.

According to Mitel.com, “The next evolution of the hotel key transforms it into data on a guest’s mobile device.
