Ever wish the luxury of chowing down in your hotel room didn't involve dialing room service, waiting an hour, paying 50 percent more than the food's worth plus tip and sometimes a room service fee? Well, the Grand Hyatt New York has a new concept that might pique your interest: their very own Market, which just opened on April 5.
Not just an average grocery store aisle; Market features locally sourced foods and brands from the Grand Central neighborhood like Roasting Plant, Tisserie, Chickalicious and Macaron Café NYC. It's located right in the lobby and you can conveniently charge your items to your room, sans waiting or fee.
"Market is truly changing the concept of hotel room service. It was conceived for our busy guests and travelers looking for quick, high-quality food with a sense of New York style and an eye toward healthy living," said Matthew Adams, Vice President / Managing Director. "With competitive pricing based on local markets rather than room service, Market will not only be accessible, but affordable."
Traditional room service for the purists among you will still be available, but for instant gratification, this idea, which we've only seen before in extensive resorts, seems long overdue. Well done, Grand Hyatt New York.
