Caesars’ self-check-in: Just the beginning? Our high-tech hotel wish list

Caesars has launched self-check-in kiosks at the Linq, Flamingo and Caesars Palace.

What happens in Vegas ... usually starts with a long-ass wait in a hotel-registration line. But Caesars Entertainment has launched kiosks at the Linq, Flamingo and Caesars Palace that verify IDs, take payment info and either dispense room keys or set up alerts to return to the kiosk when your room is ready. The hospitality innovation got us thinking about other high-tech novelties we’d love to see:

Personalized mini-bars To be designed on property websites before check-in. We’ll take Pringles, Junior Mints and Bulleit bourbon, please.

QR-code entry Scan your phone at the door to open your hotel room. It might render the kiosk thing obsolete, but we like the idea.

Pool chairs with F&B ordering touch-screens built into the armrests So you don’t have to flag down a cocktail waitress for your next round.

In-room Jetsons hair machine Your ’do will be instantaneous, and so on fleek.
