Robots The Talk Of Tech Innovations At Hospitality Summit by Besmart2: 5:15pm On Feb 06, 2017
LOS ANGELES -- Hotel robots that perform tasks like delivering amenities to guests or cleaning rooms will be the norm within the next five years, panelists at the Americas Lodging Investment Summit (ALIS)held here last week predicted. The anticipated growth in hotel robots was largely attributed to falling technology costs and guests becoming more accustomed to the concept.

Early hotel adopters say devices such as Saviour's Relay robot and Maid bot are gaining favor because they are efficient at both delivering items such as toiletries and bottled water to guests and cleaning rooms. They are also a novelty among family travelers. Executives with both larger hotel owners like Host Hotels and smaller counterparts like southern California-based Seaview Investors both expressed satisfaction on the ALIS panels with their early trials of the robots.

Host Hotels managing director Michael Lentz, said, "We're testing Maid bot for cleaning rooms. You have to think in years ahead that there are opportunities to reduce our operating costs."

Panelist and Savioke"chief robot whisperer" Tessa Lau said hotels typically lease a Relay for about $2,000 a month (the company does not sell the robots) and the device, on average, performs a front-desk-to-room delivery of smaller products like toothpaste or bottled water in less than four minutes. Lau, too, alluded to the novelty factor, noting that many families with kids take "robot selfies."
