Forget waiting for room service to arrive, luxury California hotel The Mansion at Casa Madrona will fly you your champagne order to your seaside suite via a flying drone. If you shell out $10,000 a night for the Alexandrite Suite at the posh Sausalito, California hotel just north of San Francisco, the amenity includes delivery of champagne via a flying drone.
Delivery is made via an octo-copter, and 7X7 is noting that the service can deliver two bottles of your favorite champagne at once.
In addition to champagne, the hotel is also figuring out ways to deliver other goods as well, including cookies. It's not quite as robust as Amazon's concept of delivering all your Amazon Prime shipments of whatever you order by drone, but it's a good start towards automated delivery.
Now all that The Mansion at Casa Madrona needs is an accompanying smartphone or tablet app to let their affluent guests order the "flight" of champagne themselves without having to talk to a human concierge. Such mundane human interaction is for plebeian class.
Are you ready to shell out $10,000 a night for this tech-forward novelty?
