Meet Aloft Hotels’ Botlr, the first-ever robotic butler with a gig at a major hotel brand. The eager-to-please R2D2-esque little fella, who is utilized to make runs to guest rooms and deliver anything from a toothbrush to a beach towel, touched down in Miami last week and will be staying at the newly opened Aloft South Beach for the next couple of weeks. He’s not averse to posing for selfies, so don’t be shy. Follow Miami.com on Periscope to see Botlr in action.
