The doorman is bald robot that recognizes voices and recite information about breakfast and performances, but he can not get a taxi.
There is, however, one area in which the hotel still relies on people. Throughout the building there are security cameras and they monitor what is happening to make sure the guests are safe, but also to prevent anyone steal precious robots. The other thing the robots cannot do according to Sewada is to make the beds. He plans to open another hotel like this in Japan, and later abroad.
