If you were among those laughing at Amazon.com’s plans for package delivery via drone someday, check out what’s happening right now at a lush California hotel.
Casa Madrona in Sausalito averages around $10,000 per night for accommodations in the 5,000 square foot Alexandria Suite. It features a two-tiered deck that overlooks Richardson Bay and the San Francisco skyline…and it’s on that deck that you can have a drink (or two) delivered directly to you, via a customized octo-copter drone. If you’re a real winner, you might even rent out the entire mansion and each one of its 11 bedrooms for a whopping $25,000 a night, featuring all of the droney goodness that you can imagine.
In fact, the clientele is so upper-class that I’m guessing there’s no concern about drones potentially flying away with their credit cards. The cost for the bubbly-delivering machines is dependent upon the size and number of drones you need, and Casa Madrona is also experimenting with new drones that would be able to deliver desserts and other items to guests. Perhaps we’ll even see drones carrying more drones in the near future.
At any rate, don’t expect to see Rand Paul hobnobbing on the patio anytime soon.
