24-hour room service isn’t too rare a beast in London’s hotels. You can find it at hotels like the Andaz Liverpool Street. However, while those like the Andaz offer full menus, at others you’re lucky to get a sandwich.
A new food delivery service is aiming to change that at some of London’s hotels. Instead of being limited to a sandwich or even the hotel’s own food, you can order from one of London’s 24-hour restaurants.
Feast HQ has teamed up with hotels like DoubleTree by Hilton and Club Quarters to bring late-night meals and snacks to their guests.
Between 11pm and 5am, you can now have your food winged straight to you from restaurants serving everything from pizza to bagels.
Two hotels in Covent Garden, Amba Hotel and Hub by Premier Inn will be soon be trialling the service. The hotels choose which restaurants they want to work with and charge a small fee per order.
Offering room service late at night isn’t always feasible for hotels, especially smaller ones. Some like The Beaufort don’t have a restaurant and already work with outside eateries to offer a delivery service.
Working with a service like Feast HQ means hotels can provide for their guests by outsourcing their room service. They don’t have to have the kitchen open all night, or even have a kitchen at all. Hotels can even make a profit on the food by charging a commission.
Partnering up with Feast HQ is cost-effective for hotels, as well as offering an extra benefit to guests.
There could be a number of reasons guests could be up late and hungry.
They may be burning the midnight oil with colleagues, getting in from a big night out, or perhaps arriving from a late flight into London. Having food available through the early hours ensures they don’t go hungry, without the hotel having to hold a chef captive or offer only a sandwich or a reheated meal.
More hotels could soon be upping their late-night food offerings. It’s an interesting way for them to expand their guest experience.
