Hotels are installing Amazon listening devices in every room

Hotels like the Wynn Las Vegas and the Marriott are installing Amazon listening devices in every room.

Two years ago, Geek Wire revealed that the Wynn Las Vegas hotel installed Amazon Echo devices in all their rooms.

You may soon be able to ask that question when traveling to the Wynn Las Vegas hotel, which announced today that it will place Amazon’s Echo device — powered by the voice assistant Alexa — in all 4,748 hotel rooms. Wynn Resorts called it an “industry first.”

According to Amazon, hotel customers love being spied on.

“Customers tell us they love how easy it is to get information, enjoy entertainment, and control connected devices by simply asking Alexa, and we want to offer those experiences everywhere customers want them,” said Daniel Rausch, Vice President, Amazon.

Amazon says, the Marriott will be installing Alexa's in their Marriott Hotels, Westin Hotels, St. Regis, Aloft and Autograph Collection Hotels.
