IHG Hotels and Resorts becomes the first global hotel company to partner with Josh.ai. The hotel company has designed a guest room of the future featuring Josh.ai technology for the Kimpton Rowan Hotel in Palm Springs, CA.
“Josh.ai has never been used in a hotel room before and we look forward to discovering how AI can be more widely adopted by our properties around the world. We take great pride in pushing ourselves when it comes to digital innovation in hospitality,” said Brian McGuinness, SVP, Global Guest Experience Shared Services, IHG Hotels & Resorts.
