(PCM) This is the reason we totally need to visit Japan! The Henn na Hotel (which translates to Weird Hotel) located at the Huis Ten Bosch theme park in Sasebo, Nagasaki Prefecture near Nagasaki, is the first hotel to be staffed entirely by robots.
The front check-in desk features a realistic looking humaniod robot women along with a hilarious velociraptor robot sporting a bow-tie that perfectly speak both English and Japanese. There is also an adorable tulip-shaped tiny robot concierge in every room named Tuly that controls not only the lighting in the room but can give you information about the time and the weather as well.
There is also a robot porter that automatically carts luggage to visitors rooms and each room incorporates facial recognition software to grant entrance. The hotel currently has over sixty guest rooms available and hopes to offer up at least 1,000 by 2016. Given the initial success of The Henn na Hotel, the company also plans to expand and create more hotels similar to this one across other areas of Japan. Because of the lack of a paid staff the hotel can also offer up great rates on rooms with the average cost being about $75 per night.
