A smart hotel is an intelligent hotel with a range of information technologies working together to let the customers have an honorable and convenient vacation environment. It allows customers to have a profound image about not only the hotel, but also the city and the country. Furthermore, it can increase the customer loyalty and repurchase rate as well. Thus, developing a smart hotel is critical for the hospitality industry in practice.
