Also, each room comes with a bike. Guests would be able to use the bike to get around or as an exercise bike that stores kinetic energy to power small gadgets and lights in the hotel room. The bike would create energy savings that could be applied to the room rental fee, so by saving energy, you’d be saving money too. I love that!
