New York's biggest hotel, the Midwtown Hilton, has announced that it is to discontinue Room Service to its 2000 rooms. The New York Times reports that the service will end in August 2103 and traces the origins back to the Waldorf-Astoria in the 1930s. We think it'll be a very sad day when you can't call up from your hotel room and order a burger and champagne after midnight!
Here are a couple of Cool Culinaria's room service menus - first from Las Vegas, The Aladdin Hotel & Casino:
And from 1936 Washington D.C. - The Willard Hotel's comprehensive Room Service Wine List:
And a little bonus, The Marx Brothers "Room Service"
