17 of 18

We love the convenience technology can deliver. Yet some hotels have taken the genius of a simple bedside control unit a bit too far. It’s not so taxing to manually close a curtain; what is hard, however, is figuring out the all-in-one controller that simultaneously operates the curtains, lights, television, music, temperature, and so on—especially when you're only in town for a night or two.
