Hotel news now, with the fascinating speculation as to what hotels might be like in years to come:

In 100 years’ time, it looks like all hotels will receive five-star ratings from customers – every time.

Hilton reveals what its hotels will look like in the future
Hilton hotel rooms are a few rungs above what you’d expect at the local Travelodge, but that’s nothing compared to what’s coming.

It’s little surprise that this story, in which a futurist looks at what hotels might be like in the decades to come, was compiled by a luxury hotel chain:

Perhaps the futurist might have some thoughts on the future of journalism, and if it will still exist in any meaningful form 100 years from now…
