A Way Around Those Pricey Room Service Orders

November 18, 2013 at 10:34 AM | by | Comments (0)

Last week, we kinda couldn't believe a recent survey that said 75 percent of travelers no longer ordered room service. That seemed like a crazy high percentage given that so many hotels offer room service (budget brands and the Hilton New York not withstanding.) Not to mention we ourselves almost always order room service. Could we really be part of a dying breed of hotel guests?

Thankfully, a few of you room service loyalists agreed with us in the comments section. But one longtime HotelChatter reader, Courtney M., gave us an excellent tip on Facebook:

In most cities, I order delivery service using my iPad versus room service because it is so much cheaper and so many more options. Sometimes the hotels charge me a fee to allow them to deliver to me, but I usually just meet them in the lobby.

Ok, now that is smart. And convenient, especially after midnight or whenever the hotel stops ordering room service. But don't worry room service, we still want you in bed with us so you're safe for breakfast orders.
