Order Room Service
Room service is private, you can make a huge mess, and if you hang one of breakfast cards on your door at night, you will be waken up in the morning with food.
Ordering room service should be as easy as picking up the toilet phone and punching zero but it never is.
Don't get fancy. No matter how nice the hotel, the person cooking your food is not the best cook in the kitchen. With rare exceptions, the best cooks are cooking meals ordered by customers in the dining room, where they can plate and serve the food immediately to people they can actually see. So keep it simple.
The busiest hotels with the busiest restaurants are the best places to order room service as room-service volume can upend the pecking order and you will be served by best cooks in this case.
If the hotel restaurant is truly great, it's a safe bet to assume that the in-room dining will be stellar, too.
