Room service

Room service or in-room dining is a hotel service enabling guests to choose menu items for delivery to their hotel room for consumption there, served by staff. Room service is organized as a subdivision within the Food & Beverage Department of high-end hotel and resort properties. It is uncommon for room service to be offered in hotels that are not high-end, or in motels.

A similar room service may be provided for guests onboard cruise ships.[1] Room service may be provided on a 24-hour basis or be late night service.

Due to the convenience of room service and the minibar, prices charged to the patron are much higher than the hotel's restaurant or tuck shop.
