Last Wednesday, Starwood’s tech-centric hotel brand, Aloft, unveiled its top-secret “Project Jetson.” Now, for the first time, hotel guests can talk to their rooms, thanks to the help of Apple’s ubiquitous voice-powered assistant, Siri.

“Siri, raise the temperature to 68 degrees,” or, “Siri, turn out the bathroom light,” a guest might say—if they were staying at Aloft’s Boston Seaport or Santa Clara locations, where Project Jetson is currently piloting.
