CUPERTINO, CA (KPIX/CNN) - A nice pool, a great bar, and a robot with every room? That's the promise at a new California hotel.

The Aloft Hotel in Cupertino said this is the future of room service.

It might seem right out of the Jetsons, but if you forget your toothbrush before checking into this hotel, or just want some water, a robot will deliver it to your room for you.

Whatever you need is placed on the robot, then your room number is programmed in, and presto - it's at your door.

The designers say they were inspired by R2D2.
