You know those instances when you're in a hotel and you have some simple questions about the area you're staying in, but don't feel like dealing with some peppy concierge who's just going to draw a bunch of lines and circles on a paper map and regurgitate the same tired, old recommendations?

Well, here's one nifty thing about staying at the InterCon Miami. The newly-refreshed hotel has installed an arsenal of giant touch screen coffee tables in the lobby that provide guests with a fun, user-friendly way to plan local outings, make restaurant reservations, or even book an appointment at the spa.

If you want, you can even use the screens to order a cocktail without having to walk over to the bar!

Yes, technically, that's what waiters are for. But this is 2012, and giant touch screens are just so much more fun.

The hotel refers to the interactive coffee tables as "digital concierges," and they can be found throughout the lobby and the Toro Toro bar (which is where we photographed the one above). The range of apps are similar to Microsoft's Surface or an iPad, the only difference being you can't take it with you when you leave the hotel.

We've certainly seen features like this before in other hotels, like Hyatt House, Courtyard by Marriott, and the check-in screens at Yotel. But we wanna see more!

Plus, anyone who's walked around inside the InterCon Miami's lobby knows what a gorgeous, fun, happening place it is. It's the kind of lobby where you want to spend an hour or two sitting at a coffee table, people watching and sipping an iced cappuccino. Might as well get some itinerary-planning done while you're at it!

Rates at the hotel start at $179/night.
