The Hawthorn Suites of Wyndham Hotel Group are testing out a grocery delivery program for hotels in Chicago, Philadelphia, Raleigh, Charlotte, Hartford, and Orlando. The service is an addition to their in-room cooking program.
Guests can pick out grocery items on the website that can easily be prepared in their rooms. The Hawthorn Suites vice president of brand operations Larry Hambro released a statement about the opportunity.
“An essential part of helping our guests stick to their regular regimens when they stay with us is delivering the comforts of home, like a homemade meal or their go-to snack. Our grocery delivery pilot makes that possible by giving guests the power of selection combined with the convenience of online shopping and curated dishes.
“More and more people are getting groceries delivered at home – last year, one in 10 Millennials and Gen Xers in the U.S. shopped for groceries online, up almost 10 percent from 2015.”
