A $25K Taco

The presidential suite at the Grand Velas Los Cabos in Cabo San Lucas is the best place to experience this extraordinary taco. Picture a gold flake-infused soft corn tortilla filled with Kobe beef, succulent lobster, black truffle brie cheese, caviar, salsa, Ley .925 Añejo tequila and kopi luwak (a controversial coffee in Asia, where beans are digested and discharged by a civet). For chef Juan Licerio Alcala to prepare, a $12,500 deposit is required at least one week in advance.

Birthday Cake In Bed

The Troubadour, a newly opened Joie de Vivre hotel in New Orleans' central business district, features in-room celebratory birthday cakes with sprinkles. Living proof that you can have your cake and eat it too (in bed).

Canoe Breakfast

French Polynesia is full of romantic villas and endless relaxation by the sea, including The InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa, where a Canoe Breakfast for two is served seaside.

It’s safe to say that breakfast will never be the same again. Delivered to overwater villas via a wooden outrigger canoe, breakfast is placed on the deck, giving guests unobstructed views of the turquoise lagoon.

Floating Champagne Brunch

All guests of The Villas at AYANA Resort and Spa Bali receive a complimentary Floataway Champagne Brunch during their stay. A butler sets up a magical three-course, floating breakfast with Champagne in the pool so breakfast doesn’t interfere with vitamin D time.

Cookie Decorating

Hotel Bel-Air's Experience More in-room dining menu is full of surprises. Guests adore the “cookie creations" option, which comes equipped with frosting, toppings and everything needed to master the art of cookie decorating.

Michelin Star Bites

At Mandarin Oriental, Milan, all dining menus, including in-room, are the brainchild of chef Antonio Guida. Don’t feel like dressing to the nines for a tasting at Seta, the hotel’s two-starred Michelin restaurant? Kick back in purple velvet slippers and nosh on exquisite Calvisius Caviar, a local Italian delicacy from the province of Brescia, accompanied by several star-studded canapés like Culatello di Zibello, foie gras terrine, anchovy and butter bruschetta, and Norwegian smoked salmon.

Farm-to-Room Service

Fancy breakfast arriving via a horse and carriage? Straight from the farm to your plate? The Inn at Dos Brisas, in the stunning Texas Hill Country, is where to find this dreamy offering. Think fresh heirloom Bloody Mary’s garnished with vibrant vegetables, an omelet with farm fresh eggs from the property, and much more.


Gold-Flaked Currywurst

Guests at Hotel Adlon in Berlin, next to iconic Brandenburg Gate, can experience a true taste of the city by noshing on a signature Adlon-Currywurst. Going above and beyond the typical street food offering, it’s served with edible gold flakes.

Hot Air Balloon

Inspired by the Great Forest Park Balloon Race, an annual hot air balloon race that takes place in St. Louis, the pastry team and the in-room dining team at Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis joined forces to bring guests a wow-factor $250 Hot Air Balloon featuring locally made snacks and special treats from the pastry kitchen. Call ahead to have it floating in-room upon check-in.

The Ice Cream Man

If kids are along for the trip, there’s also an Ice Cream Man at the Four Seasons Hotel Chicago. Mimicking an old-fashioned soda fountain cart, kids can create custom sundaes and add on toppings galore. We recommend combining both worlds and adding a scoop of ice cream and sprinkles to your chocolate martini.

In-Room Fiesta

Bordering the Tortolita mountains in Marena, Arizona, half an hour’s drive northwest of Tucson, The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain will give you all the desert feels. A nod to Mexican influence, staff will wheel in an In-Room Fiesta and whip up fresh guacamole (spiced to your liking) and a Mangonada, a traditional Mexican fruit drink spiked with tequila. Souvenirs include festive recipe cards to help you re-create the culinary magic at home.

King Kong-Sized Sundae

At Hotel Victor in South Beach, sweet dreams are attainable thanks to Sugar Factory, one of the hotel's on-site dining option. In other words, the famous King Kong Sundae can be ordered to enjoy in-room.

Containing 24 scoops of ice cream drizzled with hot fudge, strawberry and caramel sauces, and toppings of bananas, toasted marshmallows, Reese’s Pieces, crushed waffle cones, chocolate chip cookies, gummy bears, white chocolate strawberry shavings, toasted walnuts, whipped cream, giant lollipops, and, wait for it, sparklers on top, it’s considered a serious vacation splurge.

Marcus Samuelsson’s Famous Fried Chicken

Fried chicken in-room doesn’t sound that interesting -- until you attach Marcus Samuelsson’s name to it. At MGM National Harbor in Maryland (a stone’s throw from Washington D.C.), guests can feast on the celebrity chef’s signature dishes in the privacy of their own room. Choose from popular dishes like Fried Yardbird with the Fixings (pictured), Sammy’s Chicken & Waffles, or The Bird and The Egg. The best part? No queue.


The Martini Man

If partaking in a crowded happy hour is not appealing, don't fret. Four Seasons Hotel Chicago’s Martini Man will set up a private cocktail hour cart in your room that’s no doubt a fabulous option for pre-dinner drinks or a girls weekend. Made to order, mixologists are equipped to craft everything from classics like a dirty martini to an apple martini.

A Private Luau

Attending a luau is obligatory when vacationing in Hawaii. If you prefer something a little more intimate, Four Seasons Resort Maui recently introduced Lanai Luau to in-room dining menu. The resort’s culinary team will bring the experience straight to the lanai (balcony), allowing guests to taste traditional dishes and drinks. Hawaiian dancers and musicians are a popular addition for those in larger suites.

Recovery Bar

At W Fort Lauderdale, guests can order a secret room service item, the Recovery Amenity, after a night of too many cocktails. A kit will arrive with two Bloody Mary cocktails, ice cold water, Advil and Tums, in hopes to bring you back to life in time for round two of fun in the sun.

Sunrise with a Chef

What’s better than oceanfront property? A chef that prepares bedside breakfast at sunrise. Each room at The Lodge & Club in Ponte Verde Beach, Florida, boasts an Atlantic Ocean view, so there’s no need to ever leave (except, of course, to hit the waves).

Upon request, the chef will set up an omelet station and make a curated breakfast while you sit back and relax -- all while schooling you on the basics of mastering perfectly cooked eggs. Take it a step further and request fancy china and flowers for a special occasion.

Personal Mojito Bar

At Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, happy hour can be delivered via a "create your own mojito" in-room experience. In case your mixology skills aren’t up to par, the service comes complete with step-by-step directions, and of course, all the proper ingredients to master a mouthwatering mojito in paradise.

The Ultimate Bubble Bath

A stay in the premiere Ojetti Suite at Il Salviatino, just outside of Florence in the rolling hills of Tuscany, Italy, means guests have the option to experience the Ultimate Bubble Bath. And by bubbles, we mean a luxe bathtub filled with Prosecco, Spumante, or Champagne. When in wine country, right? Not to worry, the €9,000 price tag also comes with a bubbly bottle of choice to sip while soaking.
