Hilton Worldwide has introduced its digitally enhanced Connected Room, allowing guests to control their environment such as TV, streaming, temperature and lighting from their Hilton Honors app, and digital key technology, which the company has so far installed in about two-thirds of its more than 5,100 properties.
