Robots Have Landed in Charleston, South Carolina

The Beach Club at Charleston Harbor Resort & Marina is The First Resort in South Carolina to Employ New Relay+ Robot to Enhance The Guest Experience

USA, Charleston, South Carolina. August 11, 2022

The Beach Club at Charleston Harbor Resort & Marina is the first property in South Carolina to employ Relay Robotic 's Relay+ model. The first robot was deployed in June at The Beach Club and will soon be joined by another Relay robot assigned to its sister property, Harborside.

The petite, three foot tall robots will surely provide a surprise-and-delight moment for guests, mingling in common areas and serving as a great interactive moment for kids. Forgotten sundries, bottled water, and other necessities can be delivered straight to the guests' room from the robot, who rings the doorbell and opens a holding chamber for guests to reach in and retrieve their items. The Relay+ robots feature one large compartment to carry guest essentials, and they will be able to both call and operate elevators autonomously. The new robots only need to be trained once to move around the property thanks to Relay's obstacle-avoidant and self-recharging technology.

"We are proud to step out of the box and into the future with this new technology," said Oliver Rooskens, Managing Director of The Beach Club at Charleston Harbor Resort & Marina. "Embracing a new way of working in hospitality allows our team to focus even more on providing personalized service. We have enjoyed watching guests and their families interacting with the robots and are looking forward to seeing the positive impact they have on our guest experience."

"We're excited to work with Oliver and his team at The Beach Club to provide guests an unforgettable experience interacting with these lovable robots," said Michael O'Donnell, Chairman & CEO of Relay Robotics, Inc.

With travel demand at its highest since the pandemic, Relay Robots allow staff to focus on high-value tasks, ultimately improving the guest experience. The touch-free experience also adds a layer of comfort for those emerging for vacation for the first time since COVID-19.

The property will be crowdsourcing names and a uniform via their social media channels to make the robots part of the team. Follow along HERE.

Hotel Revenue Management: Every Square Foot Matters

Traditionally, hotels have employed a room-centric revenue model. The primary focus was on pricing strategies that could generate the most revenue from the sale of rooms. However, the pandemic has forced hoteliers to look beyond room revenue exclusively, and to maximize all available revenue streams. How is this accomplished? By re-imagining the use and function of every square foot of a hotel property, and how revenue is generated from it. For example, some hotels are rethinking their spaces for different uses - offering rooms for private day meetings, or offering suites for private dinners. Other hotels with meeting spaces are moving beyond daytime conferences and events, and figuring out how to book those spaces in the evenings, on holidays and weekends, for such things as exhibitions, workshops, rehearsals and pop-ups. Still other hotels are leasing work spaces or parking spaces to businesses in their local market. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on how some leading hotels are re-inventing their revenue management strategies.
