Champagne Delivered to Your Hotel Room by Drone!

A luxury hotel  ( at $10,000-a-night! ) is offering a Champagne airlift for guests

Room service has reached new heights with the introduction of a drone that delivers Champagne to your hotel suite.

Making a turn-down service look pedestrian, the luxury Sausalito hotel Casa Madrona has commissioned and launched a custom-built drone that can deliver up to three bottles of Champagne to guests staying in its most exclusive accommodation.

At $10,000-a-night, wealthy guests staying in the hotel's Alexandra Suite will be able to have their bubbles flown in: the Champagne-laden drone will take off from a launch pad on the property before flying to the deck of the guest's room, a spokeswoman told Wine Searcher.

The drone took two weeks to build and test, and the hotel’s owner is also hoping to build a drone that can transport cookies.

Photos of the first flight show bottles of Carpene Malvolti Prosecco taking a ride. Perhaps the hotel wasn't yet feeling confident enough to place vintage fizz on board the drone and went for a sub-$20 bubbly instead.
