Our Five Favorite Room Service Menus

Any vacation provides a multitude of dining options — but nothing beats a hot, fresh meal delivered (with white gloves) to your door, especially when it’s slathered in black truffles. Indulge your palate at one of these hotels for some of the best meals on wheels.

Hotel #1: The Waldorf Astoria

Arguably New York City’s most iconic hotel, everything about the Waldorf Astoria is fancy – from the décor down to the white-glove service. The hotel was the first ever to offer room service after opening in 1931, and despite sky high prices (just a bagel will you cost you nearly $25), the food is nothing short of divine.

Oyster’s Menu Pick: Oscar’s Spicy Asian Chicken Salad

Hotel #2: Mandarin Oriental Miami

The hotel's restaurant, Azul, is also a tasty option.

Besides being one of the sleekest hotels in the steamy city’s business district, the Mandarin Oriental also has some of the most delicious eats to offer up in Miami. Since it caters to travelers on the go, its room service menu does too: The hotel offers “Ready to Fly Meals” that are packed in boxes and ready to stow in your briefcase.

Oyster’s Menu Pick: Roasted Turkey Sandwich

Hotel #3: Dream

This delicious tomato-mozzarella salad was delivered right to our room at the Dream.

Nestled near Columbus Circle (and its fabulous shopping), the Dream is decidedly New York: The hotel is stylish, cramped, and within minutes of several subway lines. But its best Big Apple feature would be the room service from New York City chain, Serafina, which serves up top-notch Italian cuisine, even for breakfast, too.

Oyster’s Menu Pick: I Carciofi Al Ferro Rovente, a shrimp and artichoke secret Italian recipe.

Hotel #4: The Peninsula Hong Kong

Avoid the crowded -- but gorgeous -- lobby where tea is served and order up room service at The Peninsula Hong Kong.

Available 24 hours a day, room service at the Peninsula is so decadent that your meal is delivered with a candelabra, amongst other bells and whistles. Whether you’re craving breakfast at dinner time or just in the mood to mug down in private, the menu’s got something for the most discerning of palettes.

Oyster’s Menu Pick: The Wagyu Beef Burger. It’ll set you back $53, but it’s served with black truffles, truffled onions and melted brie in a sun-dried tomato bolue with truffle butter.

Hotel #5: The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

The gelato at The Cosmopolitan's Wicked Spoon Buffet may be worth a trip downstairs.

Like everything else in Sin City, the Cosmopolitan’s room service is available 24/7, and it caters specifically to the party crowd. A separate “Crowd Pleasers” snack plate is available for both the “Guys” and the “Girls,” but what really sets the Cosmopolitan apart is its DIY Cocktail Packages. Bottoms up!

Oyster’s Menu Pick: The Mojito Cubano Kit, which includes a seriously authentic recipe, straight from Havana.
