6. Hilton Mclean Tysons Corner, Virginia, USFind cheap flights to VirginiaHilton has created an entire innovation lab to ensure its hotels are as hi-tech as possible, and this particular property is a great example. Favourite features include the hi-tech televisions – log on to watch Netflix, YouTube and HuluPlus – and the Tech Lounge, which has Amazon delivery lockers. The Hilton Honors app can be used as a hotel room key, and there are five electric car charging points outside. The property’s also given those long, boring meetings a makeover, with the help of Ava, described as a mobile tele-presence droid. It works like this: if a company’s holding a meeting or conference at the hotel, employees who can’t attend in person can connect remotely with the hotel’s robot, which will then display the employee’s face. Not quite creepy enough? The robot can even mingle at cocktail parties on behalf of the employee in question. On the plus side, that’s one way to avoid a hangover.
