A lot of the newer 'smart' thermostats have motion sensors on them [NEST probably being the easiest to point at right now given it's 'popularity']. Although I suspect they may generally be seen as more home automation line of products.

Really depends a lot on the person wrt comfort, but energystar guidelines actually do suggest changing the settings at night, mostly as you're not active.

How they should be setup is to drift to the unoccupied temperature state [+4 or 7 degrees, I'd probably suggest 4 degrees since it's not able to predict when you're returning to your room that well]. Since they really need to not be air conditioning empty hotel rooms.
