Wine-Delivering Hotel Robots

Hotel Trio's Robot Named Rosé Offers a Touchless Wine Deliveries

— July 9, 2020 — World
Rosé is the name of a hotel robot at Hotel Trio in Healdsburg, California that specializes in making sure guests receive wine straight to their room with a touchless experience. The hotel is located in proximity to many Californian wineries and Rosé the robot butler makes it easy to enjoy a taste of the region delivered straight to one's suite. The bot also boasts the ability to deliver other essentials like snacks, extra towels and toiletries as needed. While autonomously traveling the halls, Rosé focuses on its mission by displaying a message to communicate: "I’m on a guest delivery."

A few years ago, innovations like hotel robots were mostly seen as convenient and novel but in 2020, they're proving to be a valuable way to reduce contact between staff and guests during a global pandemic.
