This is the panel by the bed in my hotel room at the Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong. There are buttons to raise and lower the blinds, request privacy or service (none of those door hanger things here!) and adjust the mood of the lighting. Really clever. One day all hotels will be this way...

The switches by the door allowed you to request valet service, adjust the lighting and set the room to private.
