I love staying in hotels. There are clean towels every day, little soaps, and a concierge at my beckon call to make reservations, find my car, and handle every other whim.
You may have to stock up on those travel soaps, but Criteria‘s Virtual Concierge provides instant access to some of those amenities at the touch of a button, from anywhere that has Internet access.
Schedule appointments, food delivery, maintenance, and much more. It can even operate your home theater, lighting, phone, security and other home systems.
The only problem: It doesn’t appear to be available for home use—unless you call a luxury high-rise your home. Criteria says the service is currently available in Philadelphia’s The Residences at Two Liberty Place.
