The five-star Hilton Barra in Rio de Janeiro is installing Telkonet’s EcoSmart technology in 298 guest rooms.

The installation covers all of the hotel's 298 guest rooms and all lobby and conference areas and meeting spaces.

The Hilton Barra, Rio de Janeiro is the first, newly constructed property for Hilton Hotels & Resorts in Latin America.
