Rooming alone and not being able to sleep normal hours leads to a lot of things. In this case, it lead me to ordering room service a couple of times when I stayed at Palazzo.
I enjoyed both breakfast and lunch in my room. A couple of general notes about room service. Both meals were delivered in less than 30 minutes and were both hot. The servers were both very cordial and set everything up pretty quickly in the dining area.
I ordered a very simple breakfast one morning: Scrambled eggs, bacon, potatoes, toast, orange juice and coffee.
As I mentioned in my coffee blog the brew was Starbucks and tasted fine enough for me to finish off the pot. I don’t drink orange juice very often but I was in the mood for it and it was perfect for the morning. It wasn’t the best OJ I’ve had, but it was above average.
Scrambled eggs are not always the easiest thing to have prepared for room service since they get cold quickly and can easily be cooked too much or too little. These eggs were on point and still warm. I was very happy about this. The bacon was nice and crisp which made me very happy. I’m not a big home fry guy and I don’t even remember them. I had sourdough toast which was luke warm, but tasty. I find that sourdough is always better out west then back east.
Overall, breakfast was excellent, but unspectacular and I’m fine with that.
I was beat up one morning and afternoon and needed to sit in the room, breathe and eat some greasy food. I also gave a light hair of the dog beer a chance to fix me and it worked. My lunch order was simple:
Bacon Cheeseburger (cheddar cheese), french fries and Coors light. As you see above the burger was accompanied by a handful of onion rings, veggies and condiments.
The food was still warm when it arrived and the beer was on ice so it was obviously cold. Much like scrambled eggs, it’s easy to over or under cook and mess up a room service burger. Thankfully my burger was prepared medium as I asked for it. Much like the breakfast the bacon was crisp and tasty.
I ate pretty slowly and only nibbled on the fries and onion rings. Both were starting to get cold when I got around to them, but tasted fine. Again, nothing spectacular but everything was good.
The real winner of my room service lunch was the Coors Light! All in all lunch was perfect and got me settled and up and out of the room.
Unlike my trip to Caesars in Atlantic City mid last year there was nothing spectacular about my room service orders but everything was good and warm and did the job. I would not be afraid to order room service at Palazzo again in the future. That’s good for a lazy guy that likes to drink too much sometimes.
