5 high-tech hotels to see around the world

Far from being a flash-in-the-pan trend, the high-tech hotel is here to stay. That’s because millennials now want more from their holidays through social media invites and smartphone app check-ins. Here are 5 of the best to try.

The Instagram hotel – 1888 Hotel, Sydney

If you’re a fan of the selfie, then you’ll love the 90-bedroom 1888 Hotel in Pyrmont, Sydney. The management are Instagram-obsessed, and have set up a “selfie space” in the lobby: you take a picture to check in, which is instantly uploaded onto a screen beside the reception. They’ve also enlisted the help of a local blogger, Emily Fang of Little Black Book, to create the ultimate insta-walk, a photo tour of the nearby Darling Harbour, and if you’re an Instagram expert with 10,000 or more followers, they’ll let you stay for free. The hotel’s motto? Every level has an Instagram view.
