Hospitality Trends Toward Automation

The spread of Covid-19 has boosted implementation of service robots in the hospitality industry as more consumers become more sensitive to risk of infectious disease from interpersonal interactions. Adoption of service robots could signal low interpersonal contacts, reduce perceived risk of virus transmission, which might in turn increase visit intention (Wan, Chan, & Luo, 2020)

Aloft’s butler robot

In 2014, Aloft Hotels became the first hotel brand to use robot technology, introducing A.L.O — robotic butler or Botlr — in its Cupertino location. The robot can travel the entire hotel to make deliveries. Its primary purpose was to surprise guest with room delivery.


Crowne Plaza’s delivery robot

Another early adopter of robot tech was the Crowne Plaza at its San Jose Silicon Valley location. The robot, called Dash, is all about delivering snacks, toiletries, and other hotel amenities. When called, Dash makes its way through the hotel, using a unique Wi-Fi connection. And to the surprise of many a guest, it then makes a phone call to announce its arrival. It can even monitor its own power usage and return to its charging point when needed.

Robot room service: While some hotels do away with room services entirely, others are turning it into a brand signature with a futuristic robot, like YOTEL’s YO2D2,  that does deliveries on demand.

Lobby grab-and-go: These self-service “markets” allow guests to quickly purchase F&B at a self-checkout, which saves on staffing costs and helps hotel outlets compete with supermarkets and quick-service restaurants.
