Corrected that for you.
Now THAT actually happening is more the stuff of science fiction and fantasy than robot desk ckerks
HAL. Open my hotel room door.
Like HAL he might rebel!
A friend of mine recently stayed at Hotel EMC2 (Autograph Collection) in Chicago. He ordered a beer & posted a video of a robot delivering his bottle! Science fiction is reality.

Styx and stones
Obviously, the benefit is lower cost rooms. If I am traveling by myself or on business, generally, I am not looking for any frills. If I am traveling with family or an extended vacation, I would not be happy with that setup. As we all know when dealing with computers, it is a black and white decisions making. I would rather deal with real people where emotion and empathy will enter into any equation. The future is here, but I still like the present.
Yeah, thanks for the earworm wmrobins
Back out you with the Vapors
I was almost band manager for STYX, then I woke up.
Ha ! Mental tract to accompany my Springhill Suites waffle this a.m. Truce

Well, this was unexpected. A robot hanging out in the Marriott Renaissance hotel elevator #ces2018
That savioke robot is actually in aloft hotels (as Boltr) but I was looking to obtain a few to test them out.
Most people think they're just more fun to play with rather than functional.
When I was working at SRI in Menlo Park CA, there was a fleet of Centibots roaming the hallways, mapping the place and making rude comments to anyone in their way! Centibots Project Home Page
Pretty sure that wouldn't work for me. I need something that's big and not easily tipped esp with kids around.
I personally would probably step on one if I wasn't paying attention.
Watch the face of the associate when they don't give you an upgrade: very robotic!!!
I woke you up, didn't I? Having said that; That's not bad (or at least, you've done worse ).
One thing that did catch my eye in your original article was the prediction of somewhere between 400 and 800 million jobs being lost - ouch.
I'm moving more and more to the Elon Musk camp, once they get smarter than us - watch out!
