US$59.00 for Room Service Dinner
Imagine paying US$59.00, including taxes and gratuities, for a dinner of pan-roasted salmon, braised short ribs, a baked potato, a small dinner roll and some butter. The salmon came with no garnish or lemon wedge. In fact, a picture of the piece of salmon can be found in the I had to laugh… why I hate room service. thread.
One FlyerTalk member explained that free plate rental was included in the cost.
Of course — or more than one course — FlyerTalk members compare their expensive room service in Starwood hotel properties stories, such as US$60.00 for a chicken Caesar salad.
However, is US$60.00, including taxes and gratuities, unreasonable for room service? Does presentation play as important a role as the quality and flavor of the food? Is there really more to the cost of room service?
