Inspiration from 2018 | Robots

29-7-2019

  • Robot YO2D2Yotel Boston

In the Netherlands restaurants, hotels and bars face a big shortage of staff!  Many hospitality entrepreneurs will sometimes miss a robot in service! We wonder when we will see robots in the Dutch hospitality industry?

YOTEL, the affordable luxury hotel brand, announces their new hire in their Boston hotel, YO2D2. The Seaport hotel is known for its of-the-moment technology offerings which include super-fast (and free) WiFi, self-service check-in via mobile app and sleek cabins with SmartBeds™ and Technowalls. With this latest tech enhancement, guests can look forward to receiving amenities from and taking selfies with YOTEL’s newest crew member, YO2D2.

Would you like to eat in a robot-run restaurant? Or would you prefer a restaurant in which the waiter is being helped by a robot that helps them carry your food? Bear Robotics is designed not to replace human waiters but to act as an assistant. Korean restaurant Kang Nam Tofu House in Milpitas, California is the first to try out Bear Robotics.

Spyce is a Boston-based restaurant, founded by MIT graduates and backed by Michelin-starred chef Daniel Boulud. At Spyce, robots produce healthy fast food at affordable prices. At the newly-opened establishment all bowls start at USD 7.50, the prices are lower than at similar restaurants as robots save on human labor expenses and the robots work fast! The robots prepare your meal in 2 minutes and as you can watch in the video underneath the article, they even clean up their own mess!

An article about pure hotel luxury at home! Every now and then you come across something in hotel rooms that you actually want at home. For example, a few years ago we slept at Brown’s in London, a lovely hotel with excellent bedding. In the morning my husband was already googling where he could buy Egyptian linen of 600 grams in the Netherlands. It would have been a lot easier if there had been a Brown’s Home collection, such as the Pulitzer hotel in Amsterdam just started. The complete Pulitzer Bed and Design items are now available in their online shop, the Pulitzer Home Collection. The Pulitzer experience but then at home, it’s now possible with the launch of the new Pulitzer Home collection from Pulitzer Amsterdam.
