If staying at the Plaza Hotel in New York isn’t a treat enough for you, you’ll be happy to hear that the hotel has added iPads in all guest rooms. While the iPad is a great entertainment device, it serves a dual purpose here as it’s bundled with a custom app, allowing guests to control the lights in the room, change the heating settings, order room service, make restaurant reservations, request wake up calls, contact the concierge and even print boarding passes. According to the general manager of the hotel, the previous system wasn’t sophisticated enough, and thus the iPad has replaced the older touch panel system. You can check out a video of the system in action after the jump.
