This Hotel Lets You Order Pizza at the Push of a Button

You've just check in to your hotel after a soul-sucking flight (or train trip, or car ride), and you're starving—it's late, room service isn't an option, and the vending machine in the hall promises nothing more than a sugar crash down the line (they obviously don't have this yet). You prowl your room in hungry despair, when your eyes alight on curious salvation: a pizza button. On the phone. A button on the phone for pizza.

Thanks to pizza-wise overnighter JW Cannon (who snapped the picture of this ingenious device) and the sleuthing work of Hotel Chatter, we can take joy in assuring you that the pizza button is, indeed, real.

Well, real so long as you're staying at the Country Inn & Suites in Niagara Falls, New York. For your convenience and to free up more time for the service staff (apparently drastically overburdened with pizza inquiries), Country Inn & Suites has installed a one-click button for pizza on all of their hotel room telephones. The button connects you with a local and reputable pizza place—although which pizza place is still a mystery.

If we have any Slicer's heading to Niagara in the near future, be sure to give this a try and let us know about the experience!
