Japan's New Robot Hotel
As most hoteliers know the two biggest operating expenses in properties are staffing and energy costs.
Bring on robots. A new hotel under development in Japan named Hen-na Hotel will feature androids.
This will be a full service operation including receptionists, bell staff and food and beverage servers.
While a great marketing gimmick which has gained global attention we will have to see if the concept catches on after it opens.
