Room service or "in-room dining" is a hotel service enabling guests to choose menu items for delivery to their hotel room for consumption there, served by staff. Room service is organized as a subdivision within the Food & Beverage Department of high-end hotel and resort properties. It is uncommon for room service to be offered in hotels that are not high-end, or in motels.
A similar room service may be provided for guests onboard cruise ships. Room service may be provided on a 24-hour basis or be late night service.
