    If you're planning a trip to Las Vegas, better pack a lunch.

    The average cost of room service in Las Vegas is a whopping $68, making it the most expensive place to order room service in the country, according to a recent survey.

    Researchers from TripAdvisor compared the cost of "in-room amenities" from hotels in 15 cities across the country. They added up the price of ordering a club sandwich through room service, getting a shirt dry cleaned through the hotel's cleaning service, and taking water, peanuts, vodka and a can of soda from the mini fridge.

    The results, announced yesterday, revealed that the cost of room service has increased nationwide, with $55 being the average total cost for room service in U.S. cities, $3 more expensive than last year.

    Traveling for business never ceases to amaze me. Specifically, while visiting a client in NYC, I stayed at the Radisson, midtown. Room service (breakfast) was provided by "Raffles", a diner style restaurant on the lobby level. $30+ for breakfast. Nothing fancy....eggs, home fries, bacon and toast with OJ. I'm in the wrong business.
