ROOM SERVICE, YESTERDAY'S STORY AND TODAY'S REALITY

01/03/2021
As it still welcomes its guests despite the health constraints and having adapted to them.

A look back at the arrangements put in place and spotlight on room service and its operation within the hotel...


1. THE HISTORY OF ROOM SERVICE

Room service was born in the early 1900s at the prestigious New York hotel, the Waldorf Astoria. This convenience, then unprecedented at the time, allowed customers to receive their meals directly in their rooms, and then became popular in several 5-star establishments in the city. So reserved for high-standing places, room service has become more democratic and has even crossed the oceans to be found today in many hotels!
Before, even if you only wanted a refreshment, you had to walk through the establishment and go to reception to satisfy your request. While, thanks to room service, the staff meet the specific expectations of each guest!


2. ROOM SERVICE: ESSENTIAL IN TIMES OF CRISIS

Often reserved for breakfasts or intimate evenings, the current context has made room service essential. From now on, room service is necessary to allow hotels to open their doors and to delight guests from morning to night. Thus, having lunch or dinner in the room allows holidaymakers to enjoy their holiday without settling for a classic ham and butter.
The barrier gestures are respected and we do not compromise the comfort of the customer, who can enjoy his meal with the family. This usually occasional practice has become the norm and raises new issues for hotels. 


3. ROOM SERVICE, A NOVELTY FOR THE HOTEL CHRISTIANIA

The hotel Christiania***, Groupe PVG establishment in La Clusaz, has been able to adapt wonderfully to the health crisis. Since December 2020, it has offered the novelty of room service at a very competitive price.
So if you are still in for the mountains and your budget is economic, opt for this essential resort address in the center of the village of La Clusaz.
