Yes, this hotel has a drone that delivers champagne
If you're a big fan of the future, but not a dystopian future where bellmen still deliver room service to hotel guests, then you've probably been waiting for the day when drones would drop bottles of Zima at your door.
Well, that day has finally arrived. Sort of.
Casa Madrona, a luxury resort in Sausalito, California, is now offering guests staying in its $10,000-per-night Alexandre Suite something even the most expensive hotel rooms in America can't provide: A champagne drone delivery service. Why, is still anyone's guess.
An upgrade from the hotel mini bar and available for an additional undisclosed fee, according to Skift, the hotel suite drone is designed to carry just two bottles of champagne, and, in the future, maybe cookies. Which would be nice. Whether it'll hold out its propeller for a tip has not yet been determined.
Now, the moment you've been waiting for: A 12-second video of the most ill-conceived hotel amenity ever offered as a gimmicky publicity stunt.
