This New Sausalito Hotel Will Send Champagne to Guests Via Drone Delivery
It was only a matter of time before a luxury hotel picked up on the drone delivery trend.
The brand-new Casa Madrona in picturesque Saualito, Calif. (it just opened yesterday!) would have wowed guests with its intimate accommodations--ranging from deluxe guest rooms to junior suites and the 11-room Casa Madrona Mansion--but the hotel decided to go over-the-top with a distinctive service--drone deliveries of champagne. Ah, get it? Casa Ma-drone-a.
The drone delivery is available to guests who book the entire Mansion or the 5,000-sq.ft Alexandrite suite which costs $25,000 and $10,000 a night, respectively. Guests pick of pricey champagne will be drone delivered from the hotel by state of the art, remote-controlled, octo-copter drones to the two-tiered deck of the Mansion.
Located just seven miles from San Francisco, Casa Madrona seems destined to become the new pick for rich and successful techies. But the key word is rich, as deluxe rooms in the Mansion start at $509 a night and junior suites at $609 a night. The hotel also has Hillside cottages and Bayview accommodations in separate buildings in case someone from a start-up books the entire Mansion for the night.
