dc.description.abstractThis paper reviewed the future development and use of robots in hotels, both for service and sexual functions. A number of futurists have explored the use of robots in hotels, and their ideas were tested through two focus groups of hotels managers, based in two city regions in Scotland. In these groups, the hotel managers explored the feasibility of using robots, and discussed their operational concerns about guests using robots for sexual functions.
