The Wynn and Encore hotels in Las Vegas, known as some of the most luxurious in the city, are getting a technology upgrade this month when they install an Amazon Echo in every single hotel room across the two properties. That's a total of 4748 Echos, which will enable voice control of various actions in the hotel room.
Guests will be able to talk to their Echo to control their lighting, room temperature, audio and TV. Wynn Resorts says that future developments will bring additional functions to rooms, including basic "personal assistant" style features. Obviously to start off things will be more limited, so this won't be a full Echo experience to match what you can get today at home with a truly personalized Echo tied to your Amazon account.
The rollout will begin in both Wynn and Encore hotels starting this month for suites and eventually hitting every single room by summer 2017.
