The Singular
Gone are the days where hotel room service means a lukewarm burger or a mediocre club sandwich.

Imagine yourself on a secluded island in French Polynesia. You’re enjoying an intimate breakfast overlooking the lagoon while a ukulele player performs a private serenade. Life feels perfect, simple, and charming, which is the feeling some hotels around the world can evoke with their above-and-beyond room service options.

Hotels with the Best Room Service (Slideshow)

Gone are the days where hotel room service means a lukewarm burger or a mediocre club sandwich. Attracting travelers takes more than just the basics — it takes extra creativity and unexpected amenities to keep guests coming back for more. From in-room butlers who will do your grocery shopping and help you prepare a home cooked meal away from home to authentic, local cuisine available 24 hours a day, we’ve uncovered some of the world’s best room service offerings.

Whether your scene is a private dinner on your terrace while watching the island sunset in Mexico or the see-and-be-seen scene in Las Vegas, there are a variety of in-room dining options to suit your tastes. While some hotels offer in-room mixology services so that you can get your cocktail on, others offer celebrity-inspired price-fixed meals and specialty desserts prepared by renowned pastry chefs.

For the casual traveler, Amway Grand Plaza in Grand Rapids, Michigan offers an on-site pizzeria to cater to pepperoni pie cravings at all hours of the day and night. In fact, it accounts for more than 15 percent of all room service revenue on the property. If your tastes run a little more upscale, order your dinner with a side of literature at the Langham Hotel in London, where a “book butler” will deliver reading material along with turndown service.

Whether your taste buds are looking to be pampered or you’re craving a quick and healthy meal on the go, these anything-but-ordinary room service meals can be delivered to your door. In compiling this list, The Daily Meal looked at hotels that have received rave reviews, have won awards for their room service options or offer truly unbeatable room services experiences that are hard to match. Rely on these delicious in-room dining options and whether it’s surf and turf under the stars or a continental breakfast to the tune of a ukulele, you’ll have delicious memories to take back home.

St. Regis Bal Harbor, Miami Beach

 

If you’re a true food lover  at heart, a vacation might not feel complete until you’ve whipped up one of your signature dishes to enjoy in the privacy of your living accommodations. At the St. Regis Bal Harbor each suite is equipped with kitchen so guests can dispatch their own personal butler to go shop for ingredients and set everything up in the kitchen. Guests can enjoy a crisp glass of wine while watching the sunset on their balcony before cooking their own meal, without having to worry about shopping for ingredients or cleaning up after the affair. If you’re celebrating a special occasion, you can commission the world-renowned pastry chef to bake elegant birthday cakes or even sweets for the whole family.

The Langham Hotel, London

The 380-room Victorian-era landmark hotel has been visited by literary notables including Oscar Wilde, Mark Twain, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Guests at The Langham Hotel who enjoy a good read with their dinner or late night snack can order from the hotel’s Book Butler, a service that will hand select a book based on your preferences and place it on your bedside table during turndown as a gift, along with a leather bookmark and a personal note explaining the choice of reading material.
