Hotel Max Bags Room Service (But Not Like You Think)
Now that traditional room service appears to be on its last legs, savvy hotels are coming around to the fact that they need to shake it up a bit.
At Seattle's Hotel Max, a new restaurant called Miller's Guild, the second from James Beard Award-winning Chef Jason Wilson of Seattle’s celebrated Crush, opened in December -- and now they are providing a new twist on room service.
Based on the hotel's premise that "guests are not interested in getting wilted carnations and plastic salt and pepper shakers," Miller’s Guild’s culinary craft -- an open faced Piedmontese steak tartare sandwich, for example, or sausage-topped kale and hazelnut salad -- is delivered in custom-stamped brown paper bags with butcher’s twine, compostable containers and personalized labels and tags, complete with the name of the cook who prepared your meal. So thoughtful! We whole-heartedly approve.
Rates start at $109 a night.
