Robot Hotel Loses Love for Robots

Today 00:34 GMT

After opening in a blaze of publicity in 2015, Japan’s Henn na, or “Strange,” Hotel, recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s first robot hotel, is now laying off its low-performing droids.

Chinese e-commerce company Alibaba launched the Space Egg robot hotel porter late last year, and the Hilton in McLean, Va., employs a robot concierge. Hotels in the Yotel and Aloft chains in the U.S. use 3-feet high droids that deliver mail, toiletries and drinks to rooms.
