“Everyone loves the service component [at luxury projects] and we always asked ‘Why is it only reserved for the very high end? Why can’t we bring it down a notch?’” David Arditi, founding principal of Aria Development Group, said. He said that after surveying the millennial market, the top priority was package delivery, so 24-hour package lockers will be provided at YotelPad.
One of the most eccentric, innovative and creative amenities arrives at YOTELPAD Miami residences .. Designed and developed by the robotic company, Techmetics, the new service-oriented robot will work with employees, providing services and making deliveries to 231 PADs (residences) and 222 cabins (hotel rooms) and is strategically automated to interact with humans.
In between deliveries, you'll find one of these robots hanging out in the lobby where you can ask it questions. They can also play music and dance, or rather, move, with you. The Boston location already has one, Singapore has two, while a new Miami location, YotelPad (pictured), a mixed-use condo/hotel property, will offer one in the hotel when it opens in 2020.
One of the most innovative and creative amenities arrives at the residences of YOTELPAD Miami. Aria Development Group, developer of YOTELPAD Miami, welcomes the nation's first technological robot butler to the development of residential condominiums in downtown Miami.
The latest robot butlers to grace the hospitality industry will be the two at Downtown Miami YOTEL Hotel and one for the residents of the mixed-use development (the country’s first robot for condo residents). These robots will be able to talk, sing and interact with attendees as well as make deliveries any time of day or night as soon as the properties from YOTELPAD Miami open in 2020.
Miami YotelPad - a building that has not yet finished 30 floors in downtown Miami - will use three robotic butlers to serve guests. These robots do not look like a human being, but are programmed to perform tasks normally assigned to their flesh and blood counterparts: deliver room service foods, play music and even talk.
Condo sales began in May and interest has been strong, said Peggy Olin Fucci, CEO and founder of OneWorld Properties, the project’s broker. Amenities include a gym, bar, pet boutique and private rooftop space for residents only.
“At YOTEL, we’ve always put technology at the heart of everything we do and we don’t just do it for the sake of it,” says YOTEL CEO Hubert Viriot. “To us, it has to be practical and functional and directly benefit either our guests or crew.”
Welcome to the 21st century, where a request for extra towels in your hotel room may be answered by a roughly 4-foot-high purple robot on wheels.
Yotelpad, a 30-story building that's part hotel, part condominium, is employing three robot butlers for guests and residents.  The nearly four-foot-tall purple robots get around on wheels and feature a cute, smiling face on a screen that greets guests as they arrive.

Two of the robots will serve condo residents and one will be available for hotel guests. The machines are fully automatic, using digital mapping to travel to and from rooms at about three miles per hour.
Not to be outdone among urban chic, health-focused buildings is YotelPad Miami, from Aria Development Group. Among the vitality-boosting extras the condominium building offers is an on-site matcha bar for use by residents, as well as TransitScreen technology, to show residents how best to get around at any moment.
Located on 2nd Street, YotelPad Miami will be the brand’s first residential offering on the East Coast, courtesy of Aria Development Group and joint venture partner Aqarat (the USA’s first YotelPad is located in Park City, Utah). Its prime downtown location is near Museum Park, Port Miami, Miami-Dade College, and the new Brightline train which connects Miami, Ft. Lauderdale and Palm Beach.
Here, the Stantec-designed project calls for 250 “Yotel cabins” (compact hotel rooms) topped by 215 fully-furnished residential “pads.” These studio, one-, and two-bedroom condominium-style homes start around $300,000 and feature floorplans ranging between 417 and 708 square feet in size.
