Dying For A Glass Of Champagne? There's A Hotel App For That

Yesterday, we showed you a newfangled device that helps guests suss out all the dining/beverage/activites options available in the hotel they're staying at. But what if you're so darn lazy comfortable that you'd just rather not leave your room at all?

Well, the obvious answer is: room service.

But SLS South Beach takes that notion one step further, with a new feature on the hotel's app called "Bring Me Bubbles." With the tap of an iPad screen, you can rush-order a $50 bottle of Avinyo Cava or, if you're feeling generous, then perhaps a $148 bottle of Lanson Ivory Label Demi-Sec Champagne—and it'll show up at your door in less than 20 minutes.

iPads are included in all guest rooms, literally putting the app at your fingertips. Though in many ways, this is dangerous. When it gets that easy to just--tap! tap! tap!--order a $150 bottle of bubbly, we think there should be some sort of child proofing device. Or, more importantly, a drunk proofing device to stop sauced guests making an impulse order they'll regret the next morning.

Other services on the SLS app include "Shake a Drink," in which you literally shake the iPad to reveal a mixologist-recommended cocktail recipe, and then use the bottles in the minibar to actually make it. Of course, you can also do normal hotel app stuff like make a dinner reservation, create a "Perfect Day in South Beach" itinerary, and check the weather (hopefully sunny).

Rates start at $450/night.
