The Total Hotel Experience: Immersive, No luggage, Green
The rooms are equipped with immersive reality technology. The hotel provides everything even clothes

Solution

What if the hotel room of the future is more about services and experience and not necessarily about a new architecture/layout?
022: Green is the law. My idea has 2 concepts:
1-Hotels in 2022 could provide full service, even the clothes: No more packing, No more luggage fees... Your traveler profile has a full body scan that allows the hotel to provide you with everything you need that matches your body size and your preferences (your clothes size and style, the furniture that is mostly adapted to your body characteristics, and even your tastes in furniture and in ambiant lighting or scent or climate control or music!). Online services already exist to rent you everything from clothes to accessories, Mariott could partner with that kind of services or launch their own rental service: clothes, accessories, jewelery, toys, technology... Save space at home, no need to stack clothes, smaller closets, smaller homes, lower heat and A/C consumption, lower carbon footprint... green living!
2-Hotel rooms are equipped with immersive reality 3D walls for full custom experience: wherever you would like to be (like for example in another city than the city where your hotel room is), just select the location and the walls of your room will project the views, on all the walls and ceiling of your room, from the desired location. I can imagine Mariott installing 3D web cameras in every hotel location they have in the world (they are almost everywhere), and let's say you are on a business trip in some boring city, but you'd rather be on vacation in Bora Bora for example, well you can select Bora Bora and you are immersed in a Bora Bora environment projected in 3D on your room's walls! This could also be a cross marketing tool for Mariott to entice/sell their fancy and exotic destinations, but you can also just dream about those destinations :-) (and be Green)!
The projected images could also be computer generated: instead of watching "Avatar", you can be "Inside Avatar" (so to speak). Instead of Video On Demand (VOD), it would be "Environment On Demand" kind of entertainment.  Images will be much more realistic than today's video-game like quality.  The pictures above are more for illustration and inspiration...

More to come...
