Hotel to be run by robots

A new  hotel in Sasebo, Nagasaki is  moving into SkyNet territory by making much of the guest experience completely automated by robots who are fashioned to look like dinosaurs, among other things. 

The quirky Henna-Na Hotel is set to open in 2016  and taking reservations. The rooms are very nice and, and predictably contemporary. It isn't known how much the nightly rate is on a standard room will be but it's probably going to be on the high end, especially since the concept of robots running a hotel will be interesting to some, and horrifying to others. 

But despite the heavy automation, there will be human staff on premises 24/7 the hotel's website promises.
