Tino (Small chance) says
The job in question requires specialized social skills including understanding subtle emotional clues. In addition it is also a service providing job.

Currently robotics and AI are not well adapted to these tasks (they can provide service, however only have a rudimentary understanding of emotional subtly, granted this is likely to change in time) and may never (heavy emphasis on maybe because the potential is there for that to change radically) be as they are not something that can necessarily be programmed, it is perhaps why the human algorithms shaped by the Savanna and the need for cooperation are unique and unlikely to be matched.

This is not to say there will not be some staggeringly brilliant and incredible algorithms that will evolve in AI's it is to say they will not have the same evolutionary constraints. Perhaps this may be a good thing, and perhaps not. At some juncture humans will likely want to merge with AI and that could be both a boon and a curse.

A voice activated terminal with a data base with all the info could provide these services easily, and at many people at the same time

Robots are more likely to be assistants at hotels soon. Computers may become maps of a hotel soon.
