When I stayed in hotel rooms for months at a time as part of my old corporate job, I’d routinely order up room service without a second thought. I mean, when it’s the company footing the bill, there’s never any hesitation. If I want crème brûlée I’m gonna have crème brûlée damnit!
When I’m the one who has to pony up for the bill though, it’s a completely different story. And depending on room service to quell your hunger every night is going to add up pretty quickly. What with the delivery charges and surcharges and taxes and tipping, the price of that crème brûlée swells rather rapidly. These past few years I’m more of a fan of taking cheap snacks to my room to devour instead of picking up the phone.
