Robot staff: will this trend be replicated in residential?
In July 2015, the world’s first hotel to be staffed by robots opened in Nagasaki. At the Henn-ha Hotel all staff from receptionist to porter to concierge are robots. Ten humans work behind the scenes to address any technical problems. Aloft has introduced a robot butler at several of its US hotels and the Yotel New York pod hotel has also introduced a robot luggage handler - Yobot. Could we soon see robots preforming concierge duties in residential developments?
