40 rooms at Holiday Inn in Stratford, near the London 2012 Olympic venue have been fitted with remote technology to be compatible with a new app for Samsung Galaxy S III users.

Once the user has downloaded the app, guests will be able to control various items in their room, including the TV, air conditioning and lights from their smartphone, alongside that the app will also be able to access the Olympic Newsletter, up-to-date results, event times and other information.

You will also be able to call room service from the app and even check in and out when you leave or enter, if you’re staying in Holiday Inn and have to be lucky enough to be able to rent one of the 40 rooms, make sure to download the app from the Google Play Store.
