The Regent Taipei hotel is launching what is called the world’s first photobutler service.

The hotel, which was the first in Taiwan to offer wedding and shopping butler services, will send a photobutler along with guests to popular Instagram check-in spots in the hotel and, eventually, outside of the hotel, who will then take photos of the guests using the guest’s smartphone.

Photobutlers and other hotel staff members will research the locations, which include 30 spots within the Regent Taipei. The hotel said it will add social media-worthy scenic locations near the hotel starting in March 2019.

The hotel is inaugurating the program with ten photobutlers.

“We are excited to share insider knowledge of the city and our photography expertise,” said Alex Lai, the hotel’s chief concierge who also serves as president of its employee photography club.

The service will allow guests who are not familiar with the city to see major attractions without selfie sticks or the need to hand phones or cameras to strangers.
