LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - What do you imagine for the hotel room of the future? That was the question asked at Tuesday's GE Appliance's FirstBuild event at Hotel 21 C Museum Hotels.

The group has already come up with a special ice maker and cooktop. Now, they are launching a competition for the design of the hotel room of the future.

FirstBuild director Larry Portaro said, "What can we do in hotel room to help with memorable experience. Also make it more familiar yet unique?"
