Business travel can be stressful. With so little time to relax between one meeting and the next, the travelers expect hotels to offer more than just a place to sleep. Together with hoteliers and industrial partners researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Engineering IAO created the FutureHotel network, in which they aim to make the hotel experience as comfortable and pleasant as possible. They are focusing their research not only on the bedrooms but also on public areas such as the lobby and reception.
